MEET LIZ & ÉRICA
Green Roots Meals is a woman and minority-owned business specializing in authentic Mexican food delivery to homes and businesses throughout Metro Denver.
Our Denver meal delivery company is helmed by entrepreneurs—Érica Arteaga and Liz Gonzalez-Lara. When the pandemic caused their respective businesses to contract almost overnight, the pair saw the potential for a high-quality Mexican food delivery service that could bring prepared meals direct to Denver residents.
The convenience and value of having delicious, chef-prepared food delivered to your doorstep cannot be overstated. Our customers include everyone from local families working from home to 'quaranteams' that miss their favorite Mexican restaurant to frontline workers who crave a good meal at the end of a long day. They all appreciate having prepared meals waiting in the freezer ready to heat and eat.
HECHO EN MÉXICO
The roots of our business are in Mexico and family is at the heart of our food.
Érica grew up working in the daycare center and kitchens of the Aguascalientes farm business her grandfather established in 1957. Her Denver-born husband brought her to Colorado, and she’s been importing frozen prepared food from Mexico to supply restaurants in the Denver Metro Area for a decade. Érica maintains deep ties to her family and country of birth, and all of the recipes and foods in the Green Roots line originate either in her family’s Aguascalientes farm or her Houston family’s meat business. “We hope that Green Roots allows families to slow down after a long day and enjoy dinnertime with no effort or drama.”
Liz was born in Guadalajara and spent much of her early life in the United States working in restaurants. She discovered her passion for the transformative power of hair design and makeup and founded Beauty on Location and L Style Bar, businesses that have earned many accolades in Denver and beyond. Unable to find the true Mexican flavors she had grown up with, Liz connected with Érica’s Mexican food import business. With Green Roots Meals, Liz has returned to the flavors of her childhood. “As a working parent, I understand the challenges of coming home to prepare a meal; Green Roots Meals offers a delicious alternative to take-out that is authentic to the homemade recipes I grew up with.”
With love from our family to yours,
Erica & Liz
