Is Sweetgreen The Apple of The Restaurant World?

There are some brands that have been able to do something that many people might consider to be unthinkable: transcend their status as mere companies in the minds of consumers. For instance the athletic shoe and apparel company Nike was able to do this by building campaigns around the phrase Just Do It.

Just Do It has become much more than a slogan, it has become an ethos. It is an ethos that obviously appeals to the kinds of athletes that Nike places in its advertisements many of whom have to do the grueling work of enduring tiring training in order to reach the goals that they have set for themselves.

But Just Do It has reached a much wider audience beyond people who dedicate a sizable amount of their time to training for a sport. It now appeals to anyone who has a goal, fitness-related or otherwise.

Just Do It is useful axiom that many people have applied to situations in their lives or in advice they have given someone else. Learn more about Nathaniel Ru: http://www.forbes.com/pictures/ekeg45fe/nicolas-jammet-nathaniel-ru-jonathan-neman-co-founders-sweetgreen-262627/

Another brand that has been able to accomplish this is the Air Jordan brand of sneakers that are named for and owned by basketball great Michael Jordan.

Air Jordans are almost legendary for their appeal and have been known for persuading sneaker enthusiasts to sneak away from their obligations so that they could stand in line in hopes of buying a pair of the new version of Air Jordans and getting the cultural capital that came with owning a pair.

But Air Jordans are not the only thing that people will wait in long lines to get their hands on.

These days the restaurant company Sweetgreen regularly has long lines outside of many of its locations that are comprised of customers who are fiending for a plate of Sweetgreen’s organic and fresh salads and healthy meals. Sweetgreen was launched by Nathaniel Ru and two of his friends when they were fresh out of college.

Today it is a restaurant empire that is inspiring an iPhone-like devotion in its customers. The restaurant that Nathaniel Ru and his friends have started might be able to reach a cult status of its own.

The restaurant stands apart from its competitors because its founders have strategically built its supply chain around a model that sources food from local farmers and that requires employees to make things such as the store’s falafels from scratch each day.

Nathaniel Ru and his colleagues have put a lot of effort into designing a restaurant experience that resembles the way Apple meticulously designs its products for maximum satisfaction.

Don Ressler, Adam Goldenberg the brains behind Fabletics

Don Ressler and Adam Goldenberg are the co-founders for the renowned Fabletics. This being a company that captures the need for the Americans about the active wear. For instance, in the year 2016, the Americans spent over US$ 44 billion, and the figures are expected to rise progressively. With the market being this huge, the competition is equally stiff. Read more: TechStyle CEO Adam Goldenberg Talking Name Change on CNBC

However, Don and Adam made sure that Fabletics was unique. This was fostered through the inspiring story of innovation and consumer specific brand. They would go an extra mile and even collaborate with Kate Hudson to get a glimpse of the women brand needs.

At the time of invention, both Don and Adam had foreseen a market that needed urgent intervention.

This was not due to happen since they faced a capital deficiency to penetrate the industry and cater to all the women needs that were crying out at that time despite running an online business that was worth over a billion dollars.

Here, they needed all the help they could get. This was when they considered seeking help from Kate Hudson; the people centered actress. She was able to build a bridge between the women and also the athletic wear that was bound to become a money brand. The result was Fabletics.

This was through the help of the social media personality and also the brand identity. And thus in 2013, Don and Adam found themselves in the previously redundant athletics wear, that was a gateway to the female gender wear.

Fabletics did not, however, make it without the obvious business challenges. For example, they had an inventory returned to the company for offering poor quality. Other challenges included the subscription model adopted by the company.

Here the members could order custom made athletic wear and thus matching with the top-quality standards was a hassle. Another challenge was to merge the athletic wear with leisure wear.

Up to now the company still has to cope with the challenge to align the brand with data generated by the large consumer base. The company has announced recently that it will expand the brand into the plus sizes.

Larkin & Lacey

Who will help organizations that struggle for the plights of LGBTQ+ individuals, immigrants, free speech and Hispanics?  The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund is your answer. It is the offspring of a $3.7 million settlement given to Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey following threats that they received for publishing their opinions about the local government in Maricopa County, Arizona.

The Anti Defamation League is a Jewish themed, pro-Israel organization. It keeps track of hate symbols that are used, and you can find those symbols on a free database that they keep on their website. Most of the hate symbols have to do with white-supremacist or white-themed organizations.

The American Civil Liberties Union, or the ACLU, is an organization that struggles for the plight of people’s constitutional rights. Unlike some other organizations, the ACLU will defend organizations that are thought of as “hateful,” as long as those organizations are genuinely having their constitutional rights broken.

Black Lives Matter is an organization centered around the plight of Black people in America, though the movement has grown world-wide. What makes Back Lives Matter different from past movements for Black liberation is that attention is put on groups that have been historically ignored and marginalized in such movements. Importance is placed on the priority that cis-gender Black men are not the only ones having their concerns heard and are not the only ones taking credit.

Unidos Us is an organization that advocates for recognition and respect for Hispanic people. It was formerly called the National Council of La Raza, though in 2017 they changed their name.

Lacey and Larkin advance their plight by various means. For example, they take part in community outreach and get involved in public policy work. Read more: Phoenix New Time and Jim Larkin | Crunchbase

Femen is a radical feminist group that uses “sextremism” to get the their point across. Sextremism is the act of protesting with bare breasts showing and putting on over the top, sometimes sexual themed protests.

Lacey and Larkin believe that the female body represents the truth and that it is a weapon against patriarchal values.

SECURUS CREATING HOME AWAY FROM HOME

Communication has always been a key factor in human existence but when the subject or information being communicated is sensitive and or confidential, then privacy becomes a necessity rather than a need. Securus technologies provides privacy and convenience when it comes to phone services.Being an inmate does not necessarily mean that you are a bad person nor does it mean that you should be isolated from the rest of the world while in jail or when you have been released.

 

Connecting inmates with their families and friends is one thing that I will forever be grateful to Securus Technologies. My brother was incarcerated at a correctional facility in Georgia. It was hectic and financially consuming for me and the rest of the family visiting him every month because we stayed a state away.

 

When I discovered Securus phone services, it became easier to communicate with my brother on a daily basis. Securus offers a variety of phone services in which I could choose one which I was comfortable with. I opted for the Traditional Collect whereby my brother would call me from the correctional facility and the bill would be included on my monthly telephone bill. This was convenient and helpful for all of us because my brother had no money to make calls while in jail. It was also possible for my brother to call his attorney directly using this plan. It is through this communications that they built a case leading towards my brother’s release.

 

Also through Securus technologies, it is possible and easy to send funds to inmates. Securus have really revolutionized the correctional system in the US and ensured the inmates have the best living conditions and that their rights are respected and protected as they are being rehabilitated before being eased back to the society.

 

Through Securus Technologies, it has been possible to show our brother love and make him feel part of the day to day life of our family. Through Anywhere Visit, a video program provided by Securus Technologies, we were able to stream live my graduation ceremony to my brother in the facility. Thanks to Securus Technologies, they ensured that no physical separation would prevent my whole family being at my graduation ceremony. On the last visit before my brother was released he observed, ‘It was not really bad, Securus made sure there was home away from home.’ I could not agree more. Thank you Securus Technologies.
