DC OPENING: SWEETGREEN Opens on Capitol Hill

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, Bethesda and a mobile truck, Sweetflow Mobile. So far in 2010, the concept further expanded with a Logan Circle location. Three years after opening their first store in a small space in Georgetown, the now 25-year-old entrepreneurs expand their restaurant portfolio with the opening of new locations in Capitol Hill and Reston, Virginia.

Sweetgreen is Washington, DC’s only homegrown fresh-casual concept and in addition to fervent sustainability practices including local sourcing, composting, alternative energy usage and building with reclaimed materials, the company works diligently to build restaurants that support their neighborhoods and communities. “We build each store differently according to the community vibe,” says Co-founder Nic Jammet. “We love Washington, DC. We live here, went to school here and built our business here. We are excited to get to know our new neighbors.”

Sweetgreen’s newest location on Capitol Hill opened its doors on June 6, 2010 and is the largest location in the Sweetgreen portfolio with 3,000 square feet and 47 seats.
