Sweetgreen — the salad spot with a cult following for its fresh, seasonal, and locally-sourced meals — has grown considerably over the past six years. Armed with $75.5 million in venture capital and 43 salad chains all over the US, it doesn t look like it ll be slowing down anytime soon.
Sweetgreen s plans to rapidly expand its presence in New York City led two of its three cofounders to set up an official home base in Manhattan. Here is a look inside.
Jon Neman and Nathaniel Ru — who already have homes in Washington, DC and Los Angeles — chose a bright, cheerfu爱上海 l SoHo loft to stay in when they re visiting New York on business.
To help design their new home, Neman and Ru called on Homepolish, a startup that has designed spaces for other startups and homeowners.
Homepolish founder Noa Santos designed the space, drawing inspiration from pieces Neman and Ru already owned. The living room rug was from Jon s family, and it served as a starting point for the living room color palette, Santos told Business Insider.
Santos wanted to create a dining area that felt separated from the living room — a challenge given the open floor plan.
To Santos, the vibe the of the apartment is California meets Lower East Side.
Jon and Nate wanted a home that felt clean and modern in keeping with the style of the loft itself, but not lacking in warmth, Santos said.
