Rob and Melissa Root of Stronghurst are the proud owners of Kone Korner and reside in Stronghurst.

They plan on renaming Kone Korner to "Rivals on Main" soon due to the sports bar they are adding onto the present building. Construction is currently underway.

Rob and Melissa also recently purchased the old La Harpe Tastee Freez that has set idol for five years and was sold at auction.

Both Melissa and Rob have 8 children in total:

Austin, Kendra, and Marissa Spiker, and Traven, Tyler, Taren, Talon and Adelyn Root. Making one large family.

Both of them graduated from Southern High School and were married in 2017.

Rob and Melissa's parents are Gary and Janet (Cole) Root and Rexetta and the late Jim Spiker, all of whom are of Stronghurst.

Melissa, as well as Rob Root, are excited for the changes to come this year and are very proud of their ever-changing business in the small but friendly and homie Village of Stronghurst.
