How three college friends started this billion dollar company?
Nathaniel Ru: Sweetgreen was really a solution to a problem of how do we find and bridge the gap between health and conveniences, and do it with values and a mission? I met my two co-founders, John and Nick, while we were studying in college; we were eating at the cafeteria, which wasn’t great. And we were going off campus, but it started to cost us a lot of money, in terms of finding places that we could eat that were healthy and affordable. How do we make this idea of healthy food accessible, affordable, and delicious?
