When you want food that is healthy, creative, fast and affordable – that can sometimes be a tall order.  A new business in Troy wants to change that by offering chef-driven, vegan meals that are ready when you are at its new brick-and-mortar storefront. 

Aratham Gourmet to Go opened this week as an organic deli and market with grab-and-go food by the pound or portioned into meals, all sold in biodegradable packaging. The small shop also sells cold pressed juice, grains, spices, produce, supplements, local products and natural personal care items, including prenatal and postnatal care. 

Owners Gabriel and Tiffanie Vera, a husband-and-wife team who have two young kids of their own, started Aratham as a meal delivery service, offering prepared and ready-to-eat vegan meals to customers across Metro Detroit. That business model will continue with the opening of the Troy store. 

“What we’re really passionate about is doing the right thing,” said Gabriel, who has worked as a chef with restaurant groups like Andiamo, MGM Grand Detroit and major hotels. “Doing the right thing for people, doing the right thing for the environment. Tiffanie and I believe that we have found our purpose in life … our purpose is to help as much as we can to make another individual healthier.”
