When I first learned that we would be spending our Saturday morning and afternoon at the Capitol Hill store, I was a little nervous. I was only familiar with the sweetflow station (as per my previous position as Miss Sweetflow Mobile) and was not up to par in my salad mixing skills like our associates. But very shortly I got into the groove and had a ton of fun on the salad line! It was a lot of work but our entire office pulled together as a team and we made through it!
Besides getting to know the Capitol Hill neighbors, I think the best part was seeing Nic, Nate, and Jon (the owners) showing off their mixing, wrapping, and register skills. It was nostalgic to see them as they were back when we started as a little green tavern in Georgetown – and they still totally rocked!
When I wasn’t shuffling through the mesclun, I stood outside and spread free sweetgreen cheer in form of reusable bags, salad blasters, and beanies. After this extraordinary experience, we decided to make this tradition and try to make our rounds at every store! I can’t wait to serve up our neighbors again very soon.
Happy Holidays everyone!
