Fast-casual salad chain sweetgreen is officially open in Minnesota. 

The first of the California-based company's four Twin Cities locations opened at the Galleria in Edina last month. 

A location at the former Moose & Sadie's space in Minneapolis' North Loop will be the next to open with an opening scheduled for Oct. 25. 

The St. Paul location is set to follow with an opening planned for Nov. 11 on the Grand Avenue corner formerly occupied by Pier 1 Imports.

A forth Minnesota location, planned for the University of Minnesota campus, is expected to open sometime early next year, according to a company spokesperson. 

The popular salad shop featuring seasonal menus and locally-sourced ingredients was founded in Washington D.C. in 2006 by a group of Georgetown University students. 

Baker's Field Flour, Revol Greens and Stickney Hill Dairy are among the local farmers Sweetgreen will partner with in Minnesota, according to Minneapolis-St. Paul Magazine
