The fast-casual salad chain made its long-rumored IPO plans official Monday, becoming the third restaurant chain to do so in the past two months.


Here comes Sweetgreen’s inevitable IPO

The tech-infused fast-casual salad chain’s public offering has been a long time coming but it already has a sky-high valuation, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

The franchise’s ongoing charges are higher than all but one other system, backing some operators who want them lowered. The company argues it has many other strengths that make it a better option.

Maribeth Dela Cruz, president of Jollibee North America, joins the RB podcast “A Deeper Dive” to talk about the chain’s plan to grow in the U.S.

Chris Kempczinski is not dismissing the prospects of a comeback of its dining rooms, but he also acknowledges that takeout will dominate for a while.
