Sweetgreen will open its first Austin location Aug. 12 at 1007 S. Congress Ave., Austin. The salad and grain bowl-focused restaurant has more than 100 locations nationwide, including two that opened in Houston last year. Sweetgreen will open another Austin location, on The Drag, later this fall. For every meal sold on opening day, Sweetgreen will donate a meal to Caritas of Austin. www.sweetgreen.com
