Fans Shocked At Jep And Jessica, But They Just Defended Themselves…


Fans were shocked to hear that Jep and Jessica Robertson moved away from the security and safety of their family neighborhood in West Monroe Louisiana. However, it seems the couple is still chasing dreams and moved to support their new food truck business.

Jep and Jessica Robertson quietly moved to Austin Texas just last month. The pair has always resided in West Monroe Louisiana, surrounded by family and lifelong friends. What would cause a family of seven to move away from an entire support system? A food truck, of course.

Jep and Jessica possess the Robertson’s entrepreneurial spirit, and once Duck Dynasty went off the air, they needed to find a new outlet. Jep purchased a food truck from P&S Trailer Service. They quickly turned the shell into Jep’s Southern Roots.

Jep’s Southern Roots debuted at Junk Gypsy Headquarters, in Round Top, Texas. Austin is known as a foodie town, with lots of restaurants and food trucks taking off each day. It seems Jep and Jessica wanted to be a part of that trend. Plus, Jessica is trendy and young. Perhaps Austin was a better match for this fun-loving couple then quiet West Monroe.

Despite being excited to set out on a new adventure, the Robertsons will miss their hoards of cousins and relatives back in Louisiana. Jessica said, “We fell in love with the Texas area. Gradually, we started doing more and more here. The past five years we’ve really made a lot of friends in Austin… God has planted those people in our lives over the past five years to know the transition to leaving because we’re not leaving family, yes we are leaving the neighborhood and selling our house, but we’re going back so often. Kay’s already booked trips here to see us.”

It seems Jep and Jessica Robertson are excited to be experiencing a new town, with a new industry to take over. Would you be able to leave so many family members behind and start anew?
