• Sprout Provides Fresh Greens to Fuel Meeting Attendees

     
    FROM THE Summer 2017 ISSUE
     

Based on the belief that clean eating doesn’t have to be boring and bland, Sprout has been distinguished as the first fast-casual salad concept in the Twin Cities since opening its first of three locations in 2014. With a catering menu packed with chefcrafted salads, wraps, house-made lemonades and more, Sprout is quickly becoming a crowd favorite for large-scale healthy eating.

Groups from 10 to several hundred people can work with Sprout’s catering consultants to create the perfect spread for any particular budget. One of the most popular combinations, South of the Border, tempts with the savory Ensalada Mexicana, Argentine Steakhouse half wraps, a seasonal fruit tray with in-house honey-mint yogurt, blueberry basil lemonade and an assorted sweets tray.

“We’ve had head offices of Fortune 500 companies use us to cater for their entire employee base instead of their corporate cafeteria, worked with proud parents to cater for their kids’ birthdays … and have even catered for corporate employee retreats,” says co-founder Dmitry Kenigsberg. Sprout has also been working with the Wellbeing Committee at the University of Minnesota to promote healthy, farm-fresh catering options for meetings, and is continuing their outreach to other schools on the campus. 

When Minneapolis won the bid to host Super Bowl LII back in May 2014, the city and its people got to work. By the time the Eagles defeated the Patriots on Feb. 4, 2018, in front of a crowd of 67,612, more than 150 Super Bowl-related parties and events took place, 1,055,000 people attended the 10-day fan festival and 1.4 million people visited the Mall of America. The next day, Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport waved good-bye to a record-breaking 61,000 visitors, and the people who worked tirelessly to pull off the event breathed a collective sigh of relief.

 

The Minneapolis makeover embraces everything the Bold North has to offer.
