sweetgreen has opened its first Michigan location in Birmingham – the 170th location for the restaurant brand. The new location at 167 North Old Woodward Avenue will be followed by two additional Michigan restaurants in Ann Arbor on the University of Michigan campus, and in Troy, both slated to open this fall. “When we began to explore our expansion into the Midwest, we took notice of Michigan’s commitment to providing healthy options to its residents and wanted to be a part of that movement,” said sweetgreen Co-founder and Chief Concept Officer, Nicolas Jammet. “We have been meeting with local partners for over a year to ensure we enter this community in a way that is responsible and benefits the Michiganders who are lucky to call this area home. We couldn’t be more excited to be opening our doors.” sweetgreen sources only the highest quality ingredients, with fresh produce delivered each morning for its seasonal menus, which rotate five times throughout the year. Expect to see a number of locally sourced products, including goat cheese from Zingerman’s Creamery and sweet potatoes from Visser Farms. The 3,090 square foot space accommodates up to 34 indoor diners, with additional seating for 14 on its seasonal outdoor patio. 167 North Old Woodward Avenue, Birmingham sweetgreen.com
