Currently, Snyder does not have a brick-and-mortar location, but she’s a member of the LEAP Kitchen, a food business incubator in the West End neighborhood. Snyder said she eventually hopes to open not a restaurant, but a healing center.
“It will have healing foods, healthy, plant-based foods, but in addition to that have holistic services, so we’ll have some herbs, we’ll have tea, we’ll have yoga, all of the things that encompass the mind, body and soul in one place,” she said.
Queen’s Vegan Cafe appeared on some lists of Black-owned businesses in Roanoke that were circulating recently, and Snyder said it brought her some new supporters. She hopes the desire people have to patronize Black-owned businesses will be lasting.
“I would like to see people come out on a regular basis, reach out and support the Black-owned businesses, because we’re typically mom-and-pop shops and we’re here investing in the economy and our communities,” she said.
