(ATLANTA, Ga.) Earlier this summer, the popular salad chain Sweetgreen made its way into the Atlanta market for the first time. The restaurant set up shop in the heart of the city at Ponce City Market (PCM) and is ready to expand to another location.
Founded in 2007 by three college friends who were on the hunt for healthy and affordable food options in the Georgetown University area, they set out to fill that void. The friends soon established the first location in Washington, D.C. and the rest was history ... sustainable history.
“Sweetgreen is an attempt to change fast-food culture,” the company’s websites shares. The company prides itself in letting ‘nature lead’ in the form of fresh salads, plates, and bowls, all of which are veggie-forward. Today, the company has over 100 locations throughout the U.S. Recently, tennis player Naomi Osaka recently became their youngest investor.
Since opening in Atlanta (and at a popular location,) the restaurant has established a great reputation in the city. According to a building permit application, Sweetgreen has taken over Suite 107 at 1050 Howell Mill Road, in Star Metals, west Midtown’s new mixed-use development. The permit plans include a new storefront as well as new partition walls.
In addition to the new location, Sweetgreen is showing Atlanta some healthy love with its newest menu item, the “Atlanta Bowl.” The salad is comprised of blackened catfish, shredded cabbage, carrots, red onion and spicy sunflower seeds over a bed of wild rice and baby spinach.
While many delicious things are on the horizon for the salad chain, a timeline for the opening of the location has not been announced yet.
