Store Design

The same core values that drive our business influence our store design. In the spirit of “keeping it real,” we seek to preserve and expose the natural structure of a building, no matter the cost. Finishes such as reclaimed hickory, barn board pine and bowling alley tables are tangible examples of our commitment to sustainability. Explore the evolution of sweetgreen below.
