Sweetgreen Slated to Open in the Back Bay on June 26

Sweetgreen is slated to open next Wednesday in Back Bay.
Sweetgreen, an organic, farm-to-table salad chain founded in Washington, D.C., is opening its first Boston location on June 26. The new store will be at 659 Boylston St. in the Back Bay, not far from Copley Square and the former locale of Ritz Camera.

To celebrate the opening, Sweetgreen is hosting a “Pay What You Want” afternoon until 4 PM on opening day; all proceeds will benefit One Fund Boston, which was formed to assist victims and families affected by the tragic events at the Boston Marathon bombings.

The menu will feature zucchini and yellow squash from Ward's Berry Farm in the July salad-of-the-month; there'll be chocolate peppermint from Eva's Garden as a new frozen yogurt topping; and local peaches and ginger goat cheese will come from Ann Starbard of Crystal Brook Farm, which is a fixture at the nearby Copley Square Farmer's Market, in the August salad.

Sweetgreen, founded in 2007 by Georgetown University graduates, brings something unique to the table with each store. The owners are committed to sourcing from local farms and purveyors, and the designs all lean toward green with reclaimed materials. In Boston, a local artist has done a custom 15-foot mural.
