As the first of its fleet, the “sweetlane” provides an effortless experience for visitors in vehicles to pickup online orders through a drive-up window. To order via “sweetlane,” customers place their order through the sweetgreen website or app, and choose “sweetlane” as their desired retrieval method under “Select a Pickup Location.” When their order is ready, guests can drive through the “sweetlane” to pick up their meal. As they wait, guests can observe team members preparing orders through a round observation window—bringing the in-store experience to every touchpoint in the new format. Dine-in and pickup inside the restaurant will also be available.

“Innovation is in the sweetgreen DNA, and meeting customers where they are is the key to our brand mission; connecting people to real food,” said Jonathan Neman, CEO and Co-Founder of sweetgreen in a statement. “We hope this new experience provides ease and accessibility for the community craving deliciously fresh and healthy plant-forward food.”

The freestanding building features unique design elements on all sides, including a continuous green dip around the building, a large-scale mural by local Chicago artist Cody Hudson and architectural awning details.

In honor of grand opening week, sweetgreen is rolling out a Celebration Sweepstakes where 1 lucky winner has the chance to win $10,000 in sg credit. Guests will be automatically entered to win when purchasing through the web or app, selecting “sweetlane” as their pickup method during the contest period: November 15, 2022 at 12:00:00 AM CT thru November 21, 2022 at 11:59:59 PM CT. The sweepstakes is also open to mail-in entry, with no purchase required. As an extra sweet touch, “sweetlane” guests will also receive a free custom car air freshener, valid one per order, available while supplies last.

For every meal that was sold on opening day, sweetgreen donated a meal to The Schaumburg Township Food Pantry to nourish people experiencing food insecurity.

The restaurant is located at 1320 N. Meacham Rd. and the hours of operation are 10:30 a.m. – 9 p.m. daily.
