Someone once gave us a piece of advice we live by: people don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care. This is the essence of one of our most important core values — make an impact.

Nobody makes a bigger impact than our team members — it’s their dedication that allows us to live our mission every day: connecting people to real food.

This is why we have updated our parental leave policy to provide a more just benefit to all parents, creating a new standard in the restaurant industry. We believe it is our responsibility to lead the way given the U.S. is one of the few countries that does not mandate any paid leave for new parents.

At sweetgreen, mothers, fathers, adoptive parents, foster parents, and others with new additions to their families will now receive 5 months fully paid leave. This move is rare for our industry and we hope this creates a conversation for other companies to join.

In addition to parental leave, competitive pay and the opportunity for equity for our head coaches, we are radically dedicated to building a positive company culture.

We’re hiring — come join our family.
