Inside Sweetgreen at the Promenade

Inspired by healthy eating, three college students, Nicolas Jammet, Nathaniel Ru, and Jonathan Neman, co-founded Sweetgreen, a healthy alternative to fast food. The group founded the restaurant in 2007 in a tiny Washington, D.C. tavern. The three started Sweetgreen with a goal to build healthier communities and connect people. Sweetgreen can now be found in many locations around the country. The newest addition to their chain is now in Marlton at the Promenade.

Sweetgreen has a menu with a variety of specialized bowls and salads. Some of their most popular items on the menu include the Italian Chopped, Kale Caesar, Harvest Bowl, and a Custom Bowl. The Custom Bowl allows the customers to choose a base, toppings, and dressing of their choice. Sweetgreen provides a large variety of fresh toppings for either a salad or a warm bowl.

Jonas Daniela, one of the Sweetgreen managers, said the most popular bowl “right now [is] a custom just because everyone doesn’t really know our brand over here.” He continued to share that at other locations, the Harvest Bowl is the most popular item ordered.

When I went to Sweetgreen on a Saturday, the store had a large line of customers waiting to place their order. The casual restaurant was bright with a modern atmosphere and music in the background.

When it was my turn in line, I ordered the Kale Caesar Salad. The salad includes roasted chicken, tomatoes, parmesan crisps, shaved parmesan, shredded kale, chopped romaine, lime squeeze, and caesar dressing. I also requested to have a slice of bread with my salad. At checkout, there is a small open refrigerator with healthy drink options. They also provide a few chip selections.

I really enjoyed my salad and the ingredients that were paired along with it. My salad lasted me two days and was still fresh on the second day. The two friends I went with both enjoyed their salads as well. One ordered the Italian Chopped and the other ordered a Custom Bowl where they selected their favorite ingredients. We all agreed that we would go back to Sweetgreen again.

While the restaurant does have seating, it appeared that many of the customers were getting their order to go or through a delivery service. If you are not available to go into the restaurant, you can order a salad or bowl through a delivery service such as DoorDash or Grubhub. In addition to these options, they do provide order catering on their website.

Overall, Sweetgreen is a great addition to the dining options that are available at the Promenade. Whether you choose a bowl or a salad, Sweetgreen will not disappoint.
