Our Vision
Here at Thrive Café and Catering we strive to bring you the freshest foods prepared simply in an intimate downtown location. We use organic and locally sourced ingredients in season whenever possible. In that same vein we proudly serve Ohio grown chicken from Gerber Farms, and turkey from Cooper Farms. All of which is free range, antibiotic free, and fed a vegetarian diet. The salmon we serve is a wild caught sustainable Alaskan Keta filet. We hope you enjoy the fruits of our labor and our commitment to quality. Fresh! Prepared for you!



We are serving up a bevy of fresh new specials here at Thrive Café this week!

Christian Jussen is the owner and co-creator of Thrive. Originally from Southern California, Christian has been exposed to a wonderful variety of west coast cuisine from an early age. While attending The California College of Arts for Architecture, he moved to the Bay Area and began working as a buyer for Whole Foods in Berkley. There, he grew in his knowledge and appreciation for the organic and natural food movements. After moving to the Marietta area to start a family with his partner, Dr. Roger Anderson, Christian's dream was to bring a taste of California to his new home. They began buying properties in the historic District of Marietta, with the idea to bring new businesses with a fresh new perspective to the area. With his love for design and his passion for good food and a better way of eating, Thrive was born!
