How Nathaniel Ru And Sweetgreen Co-Founders Are Championing Fast Food Evolution

Most fast food joints are synonymous with overpriced, unhealthy foods. But Sweetgreen’s chain of restaurants seeks to break away from this pack and provide more people with better food without breaking the bank. For almost the price of a burger and fries, one can grab a healthy food salad in any of the Sweetgreen’s salad joints. The inexpensiveness of the foods presented here and their healthy benefits are some of the reasons the Nathan Ru and Associates idea has expanded considerably fast and managing to open up in 40 locations across the United States.


What informed the Sweetgreens idea?

Sweetgreens was co-founded in 2007 by Nathaniel Ru, Jonathan Neman, and Nicolas Jammet that also form the company’s co-CEO. The three are graduates of Georgetown University who shared Entrepreneurship classes. Upon graduation, they noticed that Georgetown area didn’t have healthy eateries and, therefore, themselves to establishing one in the city immediately after graduation in August 2007.


The nobility of the idea and its articulated execution has in the course of time attracted notable investors like Danny Meyer and Steve Case. The fact these restaurants only serve fresh, organic, and healthy local recipes makes them resonate with most American’s that are continuously lining up for a bite of the tasty and affordable lunch salads. The restaurant’s unique designs, inviting customer service, and integration of technology in the form of online bookings through the restaurant website and the app makes it even more appealing to most millennial. In effect, the company reports indicate that company closed more than 30% of their sales through the online platforms.


Far from the restaurant salads, there is still a lot that budding entrepreneurs can learn from the trio. They are not just co-founders and co-CEO, but they are also introducing a new decentralized form of management by operating free of a central headquarter. The trio also believes in staying in touch with their customers whereby they close their corporate offices and take up active roles in restaurant operations.

Markus Rothkranz Gives The Scoop On Iron Deficiency

In a recent Youtube video health and wellness guru, Markus Rothkranz reveals why many of us have plenty of iron in our system but are testing with low levels. He goes on to tell how in reality most of us get plenty of iron in the foods that we eat so when we take supplements we are not really getting a benefit from it. The problem is that the body is not absorbing the iron properly. Some of the foods we eat will bind with the iron and remove it from our system. Some food that is high in iron is also high in substances that diminish iron. The remedy for the situation is to consume foods that promote absorption of the mineral rather than taking it from the body. In the video, he suggested that instead of trying to supply the body with iron through supplements that you change your eating habits to include things like sea kelp, dandelion leaves, and nettle leaves.

By taking supplements you can actually end up doing more harm than good. Too much iron in the system can cause serious conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and oxidation of the tissues. He goes on to say that the elderly have a problem being able to get rid of iron and are more susceptible to having toxic levels in their system. He also recommends that you try his Green Formula supplement that has highly digestible if you are unable to find foods that will supply and help you digest the iron in them.

In the video, he also suggests that you go to bed by 10 p.m. so that you get the full benefit of sleep and allow your body to repair itself. He drew a connection between a lack of sleep and unabsorbed iron in your body becoming trapped and showing up as dark rings around your eyes the next day.

Established in 2002, Equities First has grown quickly to become a major part of the global investment community with a focus on the alternative investment markets that have been growing in importance over the last decade.

Equities First is hoping to continue its successful business model that sees a focus placed upon returning stock and other collateral when a transaction is completed.

Since being established in 2002 Equities First has reported the completion of over 700 transactions in a successful manner with over $1.5billion in funding provided for different companies by 2016.
