We are excited to announce that Galley is now a part of Sweetgreen.
Dear Galley friends and family,
I started Galley to make it easier and more convenient to eat a healthy, well-balanced meal without the hassle of cooking. The team at Galley has worked for the last four years to fulfill that mission while also building a sustainable business model. I'm very proud of our team; we've figured out how to source, make, and deliver over 1,500,000 fresh meals in these past four years. And while we learned an enormous amount providing amazing meals to Washington, DC, we have always wanted to make a bigger impact.
So today, I wanted to let you know that Sweetgreen is acquiring Galley. (Press Release)
Over the last few years, I've gotten to know the team at Sweetgreen. The more time I spent with them, the more I've realized that we're working toward the same mission and that together, we will get there faster. Galley has deep expertise and technology around direct-to-customer delivery; Sweetgreen has incredible food, an amazing brand, an incredible sourcing network and a deep consumer following. We both focus s on making healthy food more accessible.
As a part of the transaction, all of Galley's employees will stay onboard with the combined company. Galley will continue to operate in DC. The best features of Galley will remain - like our local customer service, small delivery windows, and family/kid-friendly options. We will share our combined teams across both brands, so don't be surprised if you see your favorite Galley driver delivering your Sweetgreen salad soon. Plus, in the coming months on Galley, you will see improvements such as meal customization, utilization of the world-class Sweetgreen supply chain to provide more delicious options, and more. We'll keep you up to date about any changes and new options in the coming months.
Thank you so much for your support of Galley to get us to this point. You have been at the center of what made us successful as a business and what has made us excited to come to work everyday as a team.
We're excited for this next chapter in our evolution and can't wait to get started.
What is sweetgreen?
Founded in 2007, sweetgreen is a fast casual destination for simple, seasonal, healthy food.
sweetgreen believes the choices we make about what we eat, where it comes from and how it’s prepared have a direct and powerful impact on the health of individuals, communities and the environment. Sweetgreen is building a transparent supply network, cooks everything from scratch, and is harnessing a community of people who support real food.
In sweetgreen’s words: Our mission is to inspire healthier communities by connecting people to real food. We know that sweetgreen is a critical link between growers and consumers, and we feel a responsibility to protect the future of real food. To that end, we’re committed to supporting small and mid-size growers who are farming sustainably, to creating transparency around what’s in your food and where it came from, and to creating more accessibility to healthy, real food for more people. Because here at sweetgreen, impact is not an arm of our business, it is our business, and it permeates everything we do, from what we source to who we hire and how we support local communities. We want to make an impact and leave people better than we found them, and we tailor our approach in each market to reflect the needs of the community.

Can I still order Galley?
Yes! We’d love it if you continue to order from Galley. Galley will continue to operate and provide the same quality of food and service that you’ve come to know and love. All previously placed orders will be delivered as will any orders placed in the future. We have an updated service area map that you can view.
What is sweetgreen’s food ethos?
sweetgreen is committed to cooking from scratch, being fully transparent about what goes into each salad, priding themselves on using sustainable supply chain practices, sourcing ingredients locally whenever possible, and abiding by strict animal welfare standards.
The sweetgreen team personally visits and vets each sourcing partner to understand their practices before choosing to serve their produce. This allows them to serve the highest quality ingredients while supporting smaller farms.

What is sweetgreen Outpost?
Outpost is a sweetgreen offering with free scheduled delivery of the full sweetgreen menu to specific locations in corporate offices, apartment buildings and retail spaces like your local fitness studio. Customers order their own customized meal via the sweetgreen app or website, to be delivered to the selected Outpost at a designated drop time. If you don’t have an Outpost in your office building and would like to request one, fill out this form.
Is there an Outpost location near me?
Most Outpost locations are only accessible to employees of the company that hosts the Outpost, but there are a few open to the public. Sweetgreen’s original location on M Street in Georgetown (known as The Tavern) hosts one of these public-facing Outposts. The location has transitioned from a restaurant to a retail location, but customers can still get their sweetgreen delivered to the Tavern via Outpost.
