Mixt Greens was founded in San Francisco in 2005 by Andrew Swallow, his sister Leslie Silverglide and her husband David Silverglide with two goals – to make the best salads on earth and to build a great business that set the bar incorporating sustainability throughout its entire operation.
Since then we have grown to 6 restaurants in San Francisco and Los Angeles, served over a million pounds of local and organic lettuce, were voted ‘Best Healthy Lunch‘ by the San Francisco Chronicle and were awarded the ‘Hot Concept’ award from Nations Restaurant News – all thanks to our loyal fans!
In 2009 we were approached by a private equity fund that acquired the business – but we missed Mixt Greens – the farmers we work with, the amazing employees who are as passionate as we are, and the enthusiasm our customers have for our restaurants – so in early 2012 we bought the company back.
LETTUCE TURNIP the BEET!
