Craig Barbour

Executive Chef & Owner

A 3rd generation small business owner, Craig originally studied mechanical engineering at the University of MD before applying his engineering knowledge to his culinary skills at Johnson & Wales in Charlotte, NC.  Craig went on to train at Carmel Country Club then on to train under Chef Bruce Moffet, which led him to starting ROOTS Food Truck in 2011.


When he started his culinary career he received a gift from his parents, a sticker that read, “Love people, cook them tasty food,” and that is what he has been doing ever since.  “I am proud to lead the ROOTS team. We are the most adaptable, resilient, hard working team in the city. When the ROOTS team sees a mountain they immediately went to climb straight over not around it.”
