My Healthy: Sweetgreen's Nicolas Jammet
The entrepreneur relies on green tea to power his mornings.
As a senior at Georgetown University in 2007, Nicolas Jammet and his two best friends, Nathaniel Ru and Jonathan Neman, were frustrated by the lack of healthy food options that fit their lifestyles. “We didn’t understand why all of the most delicious, cool, and easily accessible food was also the least nutritious,” says Jammet. To address the problem, the trio opened the first Sweetgreen in D.C. in 2007. Now, the brand is on its way to opening 100 locations nationwide while maintaining its original mission of inspiring healthier communities by connecting people to real food.
