Walk into any Sweetgreen restaurant and alongside your locally grown mesclun topped with organic dressing you're likely to get a helping of Hot Chip _ the band, not the food.
When Jonathan Neman was a student at Georgetown University, he lived on Wisconsin Avenue, across from the old Little Tavern. He says he often thought someone should turn the space into a business he would like to frequent.
"When we started this business, I had signed up for a job with a consulting firm," Mr. Neman says. "It was a great job, but I wasn't creating anything. Working in a cubicle was torture. I work more than I did in the corporate world, and I am making less money, but I am creating something. This is a lot more fun."
Mr. Neman, who studied finance at Georgetown and did his senior thesis on Chipotle's successful restaurant concept, says Sweetgreen's simple idea is similar.
