No More Green at sweetgreen

Sweetgreen is going cashless in 2017, reports Washington Business Journal. Forget it if you want to pay for your bowl with paper/coin money — the chain won’t accept it come next year. They’re doing it in the hopes that this will speed up service and also help improve security. Customers will be able to pay for their food via the sweetgreen app or credit card. The company’s app is also in the queue for a revamp in the new year. [WBJ]
