Naomi Osaka announced that she is now an investor in the fast casual restaurant chain, Sweetgreen. She also becomes the company’s first brand ambassador.
Starting May 20, 2021, Osaka fans get their own Naomi Osaka bowl which includes warm quinoa, baby spinach, cilantro, tomato, tortilla chips, raw carrots, goat cheese, blackened chicken, lime-cilantro jalapeño vinaigrette, avocado, and Sweetgreen hot sauce.
Sweetgreen was founded in 2017 to make real foods accessible to everyone. The restaurant creates food from scratch using fresh ingredients and produce. It was recently valued at over $1 billion. Sweetgreen won the 2020 Webby Award for Food & Drink in the Apps, Mobile & Voice category.
I’m proud to join forces with Sweetgreen to change the way the world thinks of traditional fast-food sponsorships. As an athlete, what I put into my body directly correlates to how I perform, and eating delicious, healthy foods fuels my daily routine. I’m excited about the work we’re doing together to create a positive impact.
