Top specialists have quickly and successfully combined qualified care services through highly complex surgeries in this Star Cup initiative.

All this serves to aid in the overall recovery process. Brazilian health professionals have created an environment that unites technology with comfort to offer a personalized, exclusive service.

Among the multiple innovations of this Star Cup hospital, there exists an attached area specifically for the flow of stretchers and medics.

Actors interpreted possible emergency situations; as a result, everything was planned in detail. The Star Cup team is composed of more than 550 staff, 113 as doctors.

Nathaniel Ru on What Makes Sweetgreen Stand Apart

Sweetgreen is a fast food restaurant based in the United States. It is a fast-casual salad chain where people are always willing to queue and wait for their turns to order. Those who don’t wish to wait on the line may use Sweetgreen app to help them skip the line. You just make your order and then get it at a designated pick up station.

 

The magic behind the excellent reputation of Sweetgreen is its focus on the provision of not only healthy but also delicious and reasonably priced food. The chain has given its customers accessibility to nutritious meals for about the same cost as a burger and fries. During an interview with Drake Baer, published on Business Insider, in March 2016, Ru said that apart from the usual demographic analysis, the timing of store openings is in line with the larger real estate strategy of the company. He explained that the manner in which they enter a market is as important as the number of stores they open.

 

Nathaniel Ru also attributed Sweetgreen’s success to its “Service Design.” Customers are greeted with a warm welcome and an open kitchen plan that allows them to see the process of preparing their meals. All the dressings are prepared from scratch, and fresh products are brought every morning. Rather than just tell the customers about their services, Sweetgreen makes it visible to them.

 

A customer gets in a line that takes about 15 minutes. When it is his or her time to order, he stands in front of a row of ingredients, as it happens in Chipotle and a member of the team walks him or her through the whole process. The ordering process takes approximately 2-3 minutes.

 

As far as sourcing ingredients is concerned, Sweetgreen asks the local farmers what they produce instead of requesting for particular products. This way, consumers are given the opportunity to eat what they would not otherwise have eaten. The fast-casual salad chain shows its consumers that there is more to eat than the usual vegetables they are accustomed to such as kales.

 

About Nathaniel Ru

He studied Bachelor of Science in finance in McDonough School of business, Georgetown University where he graduated in 2007. In the same year, he co-founded Sweetgreen together with his two fellow graduate friends. The company focuses on sustainability and local product sourcing. Sweetgreen’s first location was in Georgetown, but today it has its presence in 27 other locations in six states.

 

 

How Sweetgreen Was Founded

Most of the students in Georgetown are familiar with Sweetgreen. Some believe that Sweetgreen is the best post-work out snack while others say that it is a quick lunch that is taken between classes. This was not the case six years ago.

 

In the past, Sweetgreen was only known to its founders, Jonathan Neman, Nathaniel Ru and Nicolas Jammet. The three were students at Georgetown, and when they were starting their senior year in college, they decided to think about forming a healthy and very affordable snack option for the people living in Georgetown.

 

The three students bonded very fast because of the love they had for food, the need to come up with something, and the need to solve the employment problem they would face when they were done with their education. Their parents were doing very well in several businesses, and the trio wanted to outshine them too.

 

After coming together, the students laid out their unique vision, and out of it, they created a business plan. The greatest problem they faced was the fact that Nathaniel, Neman, and Jammet had not acquired any experience in the past. Although their parents had done very well in business, they did not know how to create a business plan. The three did not have any knowledge in the food industry, and it was difficult starting all over again.

 

The lack of experience encountered by the students turned out to be a positive thing: it led to the success of Sweetgreen, and it also gave the students an opportunity to approach each and every problem that came their way with a new and fresh set of eyes. According to Jammet, this great realization led to the success they experience today.

 

The group decided that the original location of Sweetgreen would be M Street. The location was only five hundred feet, and the resources were not adequate too. This made the group to think harder and also to focus on the things that they couldn’t do without in the new business. They chose to be committed to quality ingredients and sustainability. They got their advice from successful restaurant owners, respected architects and the Georgetown faculty.

 

Although the business plan was not considered as a school project, the three students used their last year in school and everything they were learning was applied to the new business idea.

 

Nathaniel Ru is the Chief Executive Officer of Sweetgreen at the moment. He has held this position for a while, and he has brought a lot of changes and growth in the Georgetown-based company. Under Nathaniel Ru’s leadership, the company has increased its revenue significantly.
