“Sweetgreen launched its biggest menu innovation yet — a new CORE menu, welcoming many exciting changes (Chicken Pesto Parm!).
Over the past several years, the Sweetgreen team has spent thousands of hours combing through customer feedback and ideas, testing new flavor combinations in the test kitchen and working with over 150 farmers across the country to explore new ingredients. From that data and research comes a new CORE menu that truly reflects the best of Sweetgreen and gives people what they want.
The Curry Chickpea winter bowl was the most popular seasonal offering in 2017, and now its here to stay. 10% of Sweetgreen’s customers identify as vegetarian or vegan. The new menu introduces lentils, a new vegetarian protein.
