Is Sweetgreen the next Chipotle?

2329612512_b46cca6e13_zSweetgreen is a salad start-up that is being dubbed the “next Chipotle”.

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.
