Garnett’s is named for Kendra’s grandmother, Garnett Beckman. She’s the mother of Laura Lee that is named for.

Born in Newport News, Virginia, in 1907, Garnett grew up on a farm in Dunnsville, Virginia. She took a teaching position in Honolulu in the late 1930s, where she met her future husband. They left Hawaii after the bombing of Pearl Harbor and moved to boom-town early 1940s Phoenix, where she took up hiking. Garnett lived 103 years, and hiked the Grand Canyon into her 90s.

As take-out season ramps up, we’d like to share again that almost all of our take-out packaging is plastic free and naturally compostable. We’re down to minimal plastic and always looking for ways to get rid of even that.

In addition, our delivery partner is .rva, a locally-owned bike-based delivery service. We *love* them - no carbon footprint, everyone gets paid fairly, AND all of the money stays in the local economy.
