Arlington’s first Sweetgreen store is less than three weeks away from opening in Ballston.
The environmentally-friendly salad and frozen yogurt store is expected to open in the second week of November, the company said today. An exact opening date has not been chosen.
The store will be located at 4075 Wilson Boulevard, next to Rustico, which is expected to open for business tomorrow. The store will be Sweetgreen’s second in Virginia, following the opening of a location in Reston Town Center last month.
From a company press release:
As a standard in all Sweetgreen stores, the Ballston location will be outfitted with reclaimed hickory from an old Virginia barn, recycled bowling alley wood tables and chairs, energy efficient lighting, and providing plant-based compostable packaging. “It’s been a long time coming,” said co-founder, Nathaniel Ru, “the values that we have are very parallel to the vibrant, progressive culture of Arlington, and we’re excited to be a part of that.”
Sweetgreen’s food truck, Sweetflow Mobile, will be making the rounds around the R-B corridor until 2:30 this afternoon “as a teaser” for the Ballston opening.
The truck will also make a regularly-scheduled appearance at the last Crystal City Freshfarm Market of the season tomorrow, from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m.
