Sweetgreen Co-Founders Nathaniel Ru and Nicholas Jammet Explain Their Restaurant Chain’s Success

Sweetgreen is quickly becoming one of the most successful fast-casual restaurant chains in recent years. This salad-based restaurant chain actually began in Washington D.C. in an inauspicious college dorm not that long ago.

Sweetgreen is the brainchild of three young Georgetown University undergrads. Their names are Nicolas Jammet, Nathaniel Ru, and Jonathan Newman. All three of these young men had entrepreneurial blood coursing through their veins, since all of their parents were all entrepreneurs themselves.

These three students came up with the idea for a fast food restaurant that was dedicated to serving farm-fresh salads. After some initial planning, they opened their first shop in a very small locale in Georgetown in 2007. Since then, Sweetgreen has been expanding to many states across the USA. Currently, Sweetgreen is at around 31 stores in many different states. They are, however, planning to open many more stores as the years roll on.

When interviewed by business reporters, co-founder Nicolas Jammet said that he and his co-founders have been able to succeed due to their dedication, focus, and passion for providing people with a healthy fast-food alternative. Jammet and his friends really wanted to make their own business for the 21st century.

Another reason for Sweetgreen’s success, Jammet feels, is the team’s commitment to inclusion. The founders of Sweetgreen want everyone to know that they are a part of their family. No matter if they work in the kitchen, as an app developer, or if they are a farmer providing Sweetgreen with fresh vegetables, Sweetgreen wants to ensure that everyone’s needs are met.

Another one of Sweetgreen’s founders, Nathaniel Ru, has been giving interviews to business news outlets recently. Nathaniel Ru said that he sat next to Johnathan Newman in his freshman year of college. They first officially met at accounting class. It was their shared passion and experience with entrepreneurship that helped them form a bond that eventually led them to connect with fellow Georgetown student Nicolas Jammet and, eventually, co-found Sweetgreen. Ru says that Sweetgreen’s success challenges the notion that a business cannot succeed if friends share the CEO position.

Ru also said that he believes work and personal life can be seamlessly blended in the modern world. The effective use of technology can help businesses expand quicker than ever before, and it has allowed Sweetgreen to keep to their commitment of providing their customers with the freshest ingredients possible. Ru shows no signs of leaving his post at Sweetgreen anytime soon, and he only hopes to expand his brand all across the USA.

As of today, Sweetgreen has most of its locations on the East coast, including the states of Massachusetts, Washington D.C., New York, and Pennsylvania. However, Sweetgreen also has a few locations in California and in the city of Chicago.

 

Dissecting the Popularity of NutriMost

There is a lot to be said about the popularity of NutriMost. This is an amazing dieting system that is designed to help people lose weight. The funny thing about popular diets like this is that there is always a copycat system in place to try to duplicate the success of a hot diet program that hits the market. Right now NutriMost has a competing company called Healthy Living that actually stole the NutriMost promotional video.

I know that the competition is quite heavy, but I just thought that this was ridiculous. I have been considering using the NutriMost plan, and I thought that I was watching a NutriMost video when I stumbled upon a particular website by Healthy Living. I would later read in the NY Daily News that Healthy Living was a NutriMost adversary. I was shocked to find that another company would go as far as using the promotional video from NutriMost to lure customers.

I am making sure that I sign up specifically for NutriMost when I get ready to start the diet. I don’t know anything about the Healthy Living company, but I have researched NutriMos. I know that this diet plan has become something that people throughout the United States are benefiting from. There are testimonies on the web about people that are losing weight. I like the fact that people have the chance to keep the weight off. This has made me become a lot more intrigued about this plan.This is what NutriMost specifies as a last step of the plan, and that is why I am going to choose this diet plan.
