Even Sweeter: Salad-Savvy Restaurant with Cult Following Opens Two More H-Town Locations

TODAY, THE SALAD-SAAVY restaurant Sweetgreen opened its fourth Houston-area location. Followers of the fast-casual chain, the idea for which was first born in a Georgetown dorm room more than 10 years ago, can now score the farm-fresh eats in The Woodlands.

The chic interiors of the 2,800-square-foot space on Six Pines Drive boast pops of green, naturally. Seasonal faves available now include the Rustic Tomato Harvest Bowl with wild rice, toasted almonds, blackened chicken and balsamic vinaigrette. For every meal sold there today, the location will donate a meal to the Community Assistance Center of Montgomery County.

Sweetgreen also announced that its highly anticipated Heights location (600 N. Shepherd Dr.) will debut on June 8, featuring indoor-outdoor seating (there are 50 seats on the spacious patio!) and art courtesy of local maker Dana Caldera, whose collage pieces layer found materials and paint. Additionally, Sweetgreen will make an opening-day donation to Brighter Bites and Black Lives Matter Houston.

‘Culture of Service and Accountability’ Supports Mission of Orion EMS

Gerard O’Brien, President/CEO & Founder, and Sumi Patel, Vice President

HOW DID YOU get where you are today? The EMS industry, quite literally, never stops. Our staff and units are called to serve our community every hour of every day; there are no weekends, holidays, or “days off.” Obviously, the demands of EMS are not for the faint of heart, and we have established a culture of service and accountability that is different than nearly every other organization. Our leadership team sets this culture by exhibiting their passion for this industry daily. Their tireless dedication makes a better experience for our staff when they come to work and for our patients and clients when they call on us to transport their loved ones.
