Published February 21, 2019

Popular business magazine and website Fast Company recently published their list of The World’s 50 Most Innovative Companies of 2019

Fast Company states:

“Our 2019 ranking of the businesses making the most profound impact on both industry and culture showcases a variety of ways to thrive in today’s volatile world.”

Number 6 on the list is Sweetgreen, which Arlington residents and working professionals will recognize as one of the most popular local restaurants.

Sweetgreen occupies one of the retail spaces of Two Liberty Center at 4075 Wilson Blvd. The restaurant focuses on healthy food and unique salads. According to their website:

“Founded in 2007, sweetgreen is a destination for simple, seasonal, healthy food. We believe the choices we make about what we eat, where it comes from and how it’s prepared have a direct and powerful impact on the health of individuals, communities and the environment. That’s why we’re building a transparent supply network, why we cook from scratch, and why we’re building a community of people who support real food. We’re in the business of feeding people, and we’re out to change what that means.”

Sweetgreen was ranked as one of the most innovative companies for “Flaunting its roots,” as Fast Company wrote:

“With 91 restaurants in eight states and a network of 150 farmers across the country, Sweetgreen has created a fast-casual, farm-to-table empire that’s poised to expand by (at least) another 15 outposts this year.”

Fast Company highlights cult products, smarter delivery, a secure supply chain and less waste as standouts for the company.
