LOS ANGELES – Today, sweetgreen, the mission-driven restaurant brand serving healthy food at scale, announces its first San Antonio restaurant is set to open on Tuesday, June 6. Located in the Quarry Village community, sweetgreen looks forward to providing healthy and convenient food to families, and other residents and visitors in the area.
“San Antonio is a city with so much history, with a vibrant food and dining scene to match, and we couldn’t be more excited to be joining the community,” said sweetgreen Co-Founder and CEO, Jonathan Neman. “We look forward to continuing our commitment of connecting residents in Texas to real, healthy, convenient food.”
Sweetgreen prioritizes sustainably sourced and quality ingredients, with fresh produce delivered each morning for their menu of core and seasonal salads, warm bowls and sides.
