Since Georgetown University seniors Nicolas Jammet, Jonathan Neman and Nathaniel Ru opened their first Sweetgreen fresh-casual restaurant concept in 2007, taste and health minded diners have embraced the energetic, eco-conscious eatery. In 2009, Sweetgreen added two additional locations to its portfolio in Dupont Circle and Bethesda. Three years after opening their first store in a small space in Georgetown, the now 24-year-old entrepreneurs will double their restaurant portfolio with the opening of three new locations in Logan Circle, Capitol Hill and Reston, Virginia.
With the expansion they are also enhancing their menu to include a “lettuce-less salad” menu called The Market. The Market will contain a rotating selection of three lettuce-less salads which highlight seasonal ingredients and offer heartier options such as quinoa salad, apple butter roasted Brussels sprouts, roasted fingerling potatoes with local bacon. They will also offer a line of seasonal soups at the new restaurants.
