At sweetgreen, our mission is to connect people to real food. We make decisions to further this mission through our core values, and it’s via this lens that we’ve decided to raise some of our prices. We would like to take a moment and explain why we’re doing it.

Every day in our restaurants, our teams make food from scratch, using whole produce delivered that morning. And over the years, that produce has consistently gotten better. Our supply chain team has worked with growers to improve the quality of our ingredients, and we’re proud to source more organic and local ingredients than ever.

Once the food is delivered to sweetgreen, our team spends every day cleaning, cutting and cooking it... just like you do at home. Getting our food from seed to bowl is no small task and we know that our people are undoubtedly the most important ingredient. In recognition of this, we continue to look for new and innovative ways to retain, recognize and take care of our people, including bolstering our benefits package with 5-month parental leave, team member vacation and a 401k plan. We also created a robust career development roadmap so our people can grow with sweetgreen, increase their earning potential and allowing them to learn essential leadership skills.

We believe this will make a meaningful impact on our growers and our team. If you have any questions, please connect with us at
