Before she was the founder of Homeroom, Erin Wade got home from a long day as an attorney when she was hit with a craving for mac and cheese. She pulled out her dad’s family recipe and started cooking. That homemade mac changed the course of her life — and others’.
Erin set out to open the kind of restaurant she wished she could’ve dined at that night. She boxed up her law degree and committed to chasing her crazy, delicious dream of opening a mac and cheese-focused restaurant.
It was truly a labor of love — Homeroom opened its doors on Valentine’s Day 2011 in Oakland with lines out the door. It’s become a favorite eatery among Bay Area locals and visitors alike, serving up made-to-order mac and providing a different way of doing business.
