Sweetgreen was founded in 2007 by three Georgetown University friends who had a simple vision: make healthy food yummy, affordable and fun.
“Healthy food shouldn’t just be for the top 1%,” Jonathan Neman, one of the co-founders, told CNNMoney.
He studied abroad in Australia and was frustrated when he returned to the U.S. and felt his affordable meal options were limited. Just a few months after graduation, he and pals Nicholas Jammet and Nathaniel Ru opened the first Sweetgreen.
