Finally, they found a tavern on M Street which was 560 square foot gave them an idea to found their own. Six years later, they started an eatery on M Street which has grown to the current magnificent restaurant Sweetgreen. Learn more about Nathaniel Ru: and

It happened that the owner of the tavern space where they wanted to start their restaurant was the apartment landlord where Nathaniel and his friends lived. Ru called and explained to the landlord about their business idea, but she hung up.

For a month Nathaniel and his friends still insisted on calling the landlord until she agreed to have them for a business meeting.

They showed up at the meeting with a three-page business plan and had an idea of calling the place ‘greens’ and one page was for financials. The landlord believed in their idea, and therefore she asked them to get an architect and some sponsors and then present a real plan of activities.

It took them three and half weeks to find some business sponsors and an architect. Ru and his friends did not have any restaurant experience, but the landlord still helped them.

Sweetgreen now has stores in major Northeast’s urban areas and their outskirts such as branches found in Boston, Philadelphia, New York, and Washington. Most of their ingredients are brought from local farmers thus their food gets fresher, delicious and healthier daily.

Theresa Dold, another graduate from Georgetown University who is in charge of digital marketing at Sweetgreen, stated that Sweetgreen was not only started as a salad restaurant but with a deeper purpose.

In April 2009, the founders got a bigger restaurant space near DuPont Circle in Washington, but customers did not come in the first fortnight. The owners decided to introduce speakers and play music every weekend. This idea brought improvements in the company with almost 600 customers showing up. Therefore from the music idea, the company introduced an annual event called sweetlife.

Nathaniel Ru is the founder and the Co- CEO of Sweetgreen Company founded in 2007 together with Nicolas Jammet and Jonathan Neman. He is a graduate of Georgetown University at the McDonough School of Business. Nathaniel is passionate about his business ideas and hopes for a bright future for Sweetgreen.

The Quincy. Found in the heart of downtown, just a stone’s throw from the New Jersey State Theatre of the Arts. Each unit is bestowed with up-to-date interior styling cues, full-spectrum amenities commonplace to accommodations of this level. These condo style homes fully intended to be an upscale living community yet, seem to have missed the mark.


Some say history should not repeat itself. In many cases, we would hope against this. We would love to relive exciting and unforgettable memories, cherished moments or even decades-long stretches of time. In other cases, we can’t move quickly enough passed major disappointments, embarrassing moments or traumatic experiences. Take for example, living through an ambush style strong-armed robbery.


The life of a young man, doing an honest days’ work, forever changed on the 7th of May, 2013. On a routine pizza delivery, the man (who chooses to remain anonymous) knocked on the door of a Quincy unit found in the “N” building of the Quincy Circle housing complex. Residents of this unit explained to the delivery man that a mistaken order must have been made. On his return to his vehicle, three men motioned to him and claimed that the pizza was for them. While the delivery man prepared everything for the transaction, one of the three men pointed a gun at him and demanded his money. In the highly tense interaction, the gun was fired and the delivery man was shot. After taking his cash and wallet, the three men escaped the complex in a dark colored minivan. A similar incident occurred on January 4th, 2013 when a 31-year-old driver attempted to deliver a pizza and was robbed at gun and knifepoint. The suspects took both the pizza and the driver’s cash.


Fortunately, detectives apprehended Parysh Wood, 21, and Justina Hampton, 19, both of North Brunswick shortly after the Quincy robbery. They were charged with robbery, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, unlawful possession of a weapon, obstructing the administration of law, and hindering apprehension by giving false information to law enforcement. The New Brunswick police suspect there may be connections between this arrest and the recent pizza delivery robberies.


More recently, on October 7th 2015, one bystander was shot in an altercation involving a known gang member. The victim suffered minor injuries. Residents of the Quincy reported to have heard a series of gunshots around 9:30 pm. The victim was taken to the nearest Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital for immediate treatment. Recovering from a non-life-threatening wound, the victim was able to provide a description of the suspect.


For all its luxury surroundings, the Quincy is surprisingly rife with danger. Police frequent the area for calls ranging from domestic abuse situations to attempted murder. Apply caution when visiting the area or if you’re considering re-locating nearby.

The corpse flower, formally known as the Amorphophallus titanum plant, is set to bloom this week at Orange Coast College. Corpse flowers are known for their smelly aroma, which is often said to be quite similar to that of a decaying corpse. They grow rather large as well. The corpse flower that will be on display at Orange Coast College is around 30 pounds, but they can typically grow to over 200 pounds.

Orange Coast College’s corpse flower has been named “Little John”. Orange Coast College has had the plant since 2006, so this day is long awaited. It will be on display Wednesday, June 28, at 2701 Fairview Road, from 10 AM to 6 PM. But, when the flower starts to bloom visitors may stay until 10 PM.

Even with their awful smell, some admire their beauty. Stated, by Andrea Rangno, a spokeswoman for the college, “they’re really beautiful when they flower.” When flowered, the plant has large attractive magenta petals that look like a shirt surrounding the plant. The admirers certainly do have something to anticipate, since this flower takes a decade for a bloom that only lasts 24-48 hours.

Orange Coast College is a community college located in Orange County, California. The college was formed in 1947 after local voters decided to build a new college, and classes began in 1948. Currently, Orange Coast College is the third largest college in Orange County and enrolls 24,000 undergraduate students.

Orange College offers a 164-acre campus in beautiful Costa Mesa, California. Orange Coast College offers 135 academic and career programs. Also, Orange Coast College ranks as the number one in connection with the number of students it transfers to the University of California and California State University system.

Orange Coast College is a great place to receive an undergraduate education. Orange Coast College is a great choice for both undergraduate situations, just to receive an associates’ degree or to later transfer to a 4-year college.
