Founded in Washington DC in 2007, sweetgreen is on a mission to reimagine fast food as real food that is delicious, sustainable, and healthy. Now with over 150 locations across the United States, the restaurant brand brings customers fresh, flavorful, made-from-scratch offerings. The company also aims to empower its customers, never asking them to sacrifice quality for convenience.

Sweetgreen’s mission to connect communities to real food shines through in its menu, which includes a variety of innovative warm bowls, salads, and plates. With a plant-forward menu, the cafe averages 30% less carbon-intensive options than the average American meal. This climate-conscious commitment helps cultivate a better environment for all involved: food partners, customers, team members, and the planet.

In addition to its high-quality options, the organization has a commitment to uplift local communities through partnerships, events, and education opportunities. In fact, Klosterman Baking Company is the local Indianapolis bread partner, meaning that sweetgreen’s Indy locations will serve Klosterman Baking Company’s bread as a complimentary option for all salads, plates, and bowl orders, and the company’s focaccia will also be available for purchase.

The brand will further support its mission to uplift and feed the community through partnering with its customers to make an impact on Indianapolis: For every bowl sold on opening day, sweetgreen will donate a meal to Second Helpings to nourish Hoosiers experiencing food insecurity.
