Fantastic First Day at Sweetgreen
February 9, 2010 § 3 Comments
It seems as though a lot of people wanted a little green freshness in their life in the midst of this blizzard, because my new Sourceress job picked up quite a bit of buzz today!
Washington Business Journal- “Sweetgreen Takes Locavore to a New Level”
Tasting Table- “From The Source” (including my favorite things at the market!)
Amanda over at Metrocurean gave Sweetgreen some Twitter love, and we got several calls at the office from excited people who read the article and were thrilled we are moving to an all-sustainable menu.
I am a very lucky girl to be working at such a fantastic, socially responsible company. I felt like I’d already been there for months when it was just my first day!
We are pressing forward at full speed to have as much local food as humanely possible ready to go for the Sweetgreen Local Circle opening on February 16th!! Get excited- we are!! I am in talks with Firefly Farms, EcoFriendly Foods, Tuscarora Co-op, Atwater’s Bakery and many more wonderful local food producers to make sure we are serving the most delicious, community inclusive, sustainably grown food around.
And the Sweetgreen salads are soooo good. Check out the all-local salad I made for lunch today.
Mache, beets, butternut squash, roasted mushrooms, watermelon radishes, turkey and goat cheese, plus roasted purple potatoes and onions from last night’s roast chicken (with bread from Bakery de France and an Honest Tea).
