The three friends behind a $1bn healthy fast-food firm
The BBC's weekly The Boss series profiles different business leaders from around the world. This week we speak to Nicolas Jammet and Jonathan Neman, co-founders of US salad bowl restaurant chain Sweetgreen.
When three college friends couldn't find healthy and affordable meals to buy in their neighbourhood of Washington DC they decided to solve the problem by opening their own restaurant.
Thirteen years later, their business, Sweetgreen, is estimated to be worth more than $1bn (£780m).
