Shownotes

Nicolas Jammet is the co-founder and chief concept officer of Sweetgreen, the mission-driven restaurant brand that serves healthy food at scale. Nick and his co-founder started Sweetgreen in 2007, just three months after graduating from Georgetown. Their vision is to be as ubiquitous as traditional fast food – but far, far more transparent and honest. 

I'm really excited to welcome my friend Nick to the podcast today for one of our “founder” episodes. We talk about the founding story of Sweetgreen, the importance of food quality, sourcing, and transparency, how they’ve grown and evolved the brand since it began, why they decided to go seed oil free, how they’re influencing the way the next generation thinks about food, and how they hope to transform the world of fast food.

We also cover:
