Sweetgreen expands its presence in the Midwest with its first opening in Michigan

THE ANGELS–(COMMERCIAL WIRE)–On Tuesday, August 9, sweetgreen, the mission-driven restaurant brand serving healthy food at scale, will open its highly anticipated first Michigan location in Birmingham, the 170th location for the restaurant brand. Guests can visit the new location at 167 North Old Woodward Avenue, a community enriched with local pride and a deep appreciation of healthy and sustainable food choices.

sweetgreen aims to bring to the Metro Detroit community a restaurant that passionately believes in connecting people with real food. The Birmingham opening will be followed by two additional restaurants in Michigan: in Ann Arbor, on the University of Michigan campus, and in Troy, both scheduled to open this fall.

When we began exploring our expansion into the Midwest, we became aware of Michigan’s commitment to providing healthy options for its residents and we 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 make sure we enter this community in a responsible way that benefits Michiganders lucky enough to call this area home. We couldn’t be more excited to open our doors.”

Sweetgreen sources only the highest quality ingredients, with fresh produce delivered each morning for their seasonal menus, which rotate five times throughout the year. Michiganders can expect to see a number of locally sourced produce, including goat cheese from Zingerman’s Creamery and sweet potatoes from Visser Farms. The brand has also partnered with Detroit-based artist Ellen Rutt to commission artwork for the interior of the Birmingham restaurant.

For every meal sold on opening day, Sweetgreen will donate a meal to Forgotten Harvest to help feed the food insecure of Metro Detroit. sweetgreen will also celebrate its grand opening day in Birmingham with treats from beloved local food purveyor Zingerman’s Bakehouse, surprise giveaways and treats for guests throughout the day, and a ribbon-cutting ceremony beginning at 4 pm with remarks from the House of Birmingham Bloomfield Trade.
