Sweetgreen Commitment to Healthy Sexy Salads

Healthy eating on the go has not been an easy market. With fast food restaurants everywhere, many times healthy fast food is too expensive. Three Georgetown graduates decided to bring farm fresh salads to consumers and hit a gold mine. Nicolas Jammet, Jonathan Neman, and Nathaniel Ru started Sweetgreen in 2007 with one shop in Georgetown, where they graduated. The start up was funded by 40 friends and relatives, and now those three control one of the fastest growing food start ups.

Sweetgreen has now opened 31 locations nationwide, and they hope to open 40 by the end of the year. They have completed three rounds of venture capital raising, totaling 95 million. All three co-founders were from families of entrepreneurs, so the business building came easy. Nicolas Jammet is from a family of restaurateurs, so he brought that experience to the table. They coupled their entrepreneurial spirit with a want to find better food options.

They value the homegrown nutrition of farm fresh salads. The founders noticed how unhealthy salads had become. They wanted to build a business that valued the community, employees, and the farms. They truly value their employees, and if someone leaves them, then they want to know why. What did the company not do that could cause them to stay? The biggest part of their brand is the team work.

How did they make a salad sexy? They know in the end they are selling more than just lettuce, they are selling a brand. Salad is all about the dressing and the toppings. Nathaniel Ru is one of the founders who continues to push the mission of selling a lifestyle and a brand. Nathaniel Ru has stated “Everything you do should last longer than you.” The three founders have started with a vision to create a healthy lifestyle oriented salad chain and watched it explode. Through innovative thinking and immense respect for their employees and distributors, Sweetgreen has made a name for themselves. Their growth nationwide has shown that. With this new round of venture fund raising, it will be interesting to see where they go next.

Bizterzo has been in the food industry for several years, creating unique products that are healthy and tasty. Hippeas’ flavors include Far Out Fajita and Vegan White Cheddar and taste as good as they sound.

Bisterzo wanted to create a product that was the right amount of creative and familiar. With chickpeas as the chosen ingredient, his team set out to create a snack that was healthy and had special flavors but wasn’t too far out. Their baby is Hippeas, which has been quite popular with consumers. So popular, that Starbucks is bringing them to their locations. With 7,500 Starbucks on the bandwagon so far, it won’t be too long before these snacks become a household name.

Entrepreneurs are very valuable whether they are male or female. Also, entrepreneurs get to experience a lot of freedom.

However, when people start succeeding a their own business, then they tend to not want to go back to the old way of doing things. However, there is one common characteristic of an entrepreneur. That characteristic is creativity, and Doe Deere is one of the more creative people in today’s age. It shows in the different careers that she has taken on.

After her music career, she has decided to break into the fashion and make up industry. This is where she has let another aspect of her creativity shine.

As a result, she has used her imagination to come up with something artistic that will not only amaze people, but inspire them to come up with their own looks. This is something that Doe Deere is very passionate about. Therefore, she has opened up her own make up company called Lime Crime. It has grown to be a successful company, too.

Better Communications Services

Let’s face it, we as the general public has a wide variety of misconceptions when it comes to our country’s correctional facility system. When an American citizen thinks of a jail or prison, the image that comes to mind is likely one that has been forced upon them from television and movies. But the truth is that in most cases the reality is far from the Hollywood version.

One of the most common misconceptions that people hold about the prison system is the idea that prisoners are able to make and receive phone calls for no charge because the calls are supplied by the facility and paid for with tax dollars. However, this is not the case. Instead, prisons, jails, and other similar facilities end up contracting these services put to third party suppliers who then charge the inmates and the people that they call for the services provided. In some cases, those phone calls are not only of bad quality, but they are very expensive and often prevent inmates from being able to stay in touch with their friends and family. However, there are some companies like Securus that strive to bring something better to the table for inmates.

Even if you can’t bring yourself to feel sorry for inmates for being in the position that they are in, which is understandable, you have to feel bad for the people that love them, especially the children. It is sad enough for a child to have to be separated from a parent under these dramatic circumstances, but for them to have to face additional restrictions when it comes to phone calls or other communications, makes it even worse.

That is exactly why responsible communications companies like Securus have worked so diligently to provide the very best in their quality of services.

Nathaniel Ru and the Success of Sweetgreen

Ideas require several generations of time to fully develop into concepts that can have an impact on popular culture. In the case of food dishes for restaurants, concepts that become hugely popular have a period of germination of decades.
