After school, many students are always wondering what they will do. This was not different for three students in Georgetown before their graduation day. Nicholas Jammet, Jonathan Neman, and Nathaniel Ru had been studying for several years, and they had no idea how they would survive after school. The three young men did not know that they would be the owners of a very productive and profitable startup in the US, just eight years after leaving their school. The startup is known as Sweetgreen, and it is currently based in Washington.
When Sweetgreen was introduced over eight years ago by the three young men, it had only one store that was found in Georgetown. At first, things were not so good for the startup because most of the funds coming from friends and family of the graduates. After a lot of hard work, the startup has done well, and it currently has more than thirty shops in the United States. This year, the three partners are planning to open more stores to increase their revenue. Sweetgreen has successfully managed to raise three rounds of funding, amounting to over ninety-five million dollars.
Not long ago, Nicholas Jammet, the co-CEO of the institution was called for a special interview to explain the progress of the company. Jammet believes that the three partners were able to invent and develop the successful business plan because of their backgrounds. Businesspeople bore all three. They had learned about business from their parents, and this is one of the reasons they chose to take the business route. Most of the parents had invested in restaurants, but none of the young men wanted to have a restaurant. The young people wanted something unique and different that would sustain them in future and at the same time provide the consumer with better healthy food options.
Their journey to success was not an easy one. The three entrepreneurs had to come up with ideas that were not common in the market. They had to be different from everyone. They sat down and created a business plan. The plan is used until today.
Nathaniel Ru is one of the founding partners of Sweetgreen. He is also the CEO of the successful startup. Nathaniel has held this position for more than eight years, and with the help of his partners, he has transformed the lives of many consumers by ensuring that they receive better and healthy food options.
