Sweetgreen’s co-founder Nicolas Jammet sees gold in the eating habits of DC’s harried college students and K Street professionals — on the run and always seemingly putting the wrong things in their tummies.
So with the guidance of one of their Georgetown University business professors, Jammet and two fellow students, Nathaniel Ru and Jonathan Neman, set out to alter DC’s food scene with an eco-friendly menu which stands DC’s burger-friendly foodscape on its head.
Think all-natural salads, frozen yogurts and an eco-friendly mission which doesn’t mow down South American rainforests to produce Big Macs.
