WASHINGTON, DC. - Eleven years ago, three college kids opened a salad shop in a tiny, green-roofed storefront in Georgetown. Sweetgreen has since become one of DC’s biggest fast-casual success stories with locations around the country, and an upgraded flagship location that opened last year. Meanwhile, that 500-square-foot shop where it all began has been empty for months.

That’s about to change. Sweetgreen’s owners are transforming their original digs into a market called The Tavern, set to open this fall. Bonus: they’re bringing back their frozen yogurt (aka “Sweetflow”).

“We figured what better way to use this building than to celebrate the farmers and growers and producers and all the food that really helped our business grow?” says co-founder Nicolas Jammet.
