Wellness-inspired business SŌW expands
with SŌW To Go at Gravity and Green|House
SŌW Plated is officially expanding – introducing two of our new concept spaces, SŌW To Go, in Franklinton and Short North with our partners at Kaufman Development.
We are excited to share a fresh twist on our restaurant concept— fast-casual stores focused on delivery and carry-out featuring SŌW’s crave-worthy dishes, fresh-pressed juices, smoothies and an expanded coffee menu at Gravity in Franklinton and Green|House Short North.

SŌW To Go will serve the same fresh, scratch-made, nutrient-packed dishes, including breakfast favorites like the Acai Bowl and Market Scramble, starters like Maple Sweet Chili Cauliflower and Breads & Spreads, plus heartier options that range from the veggie-packed Harvest Salad to the crowd-pleasing Wagyu Burger with smoked gouda and aioli.
In addition to good-for-you food, the store will also feature best-selling books, apparel and offerings by other local brands in the wellness sector.
“We’re so passionate about wellness and mental health and how food connects to both,” Sunny Fahlgren said. “All of us are on some sort of health journey. Certain things are within our control, and some things are not. But we do have an opportunity to make a decision about our health three times a day when we eat. The way people have responded to SŌW Plated is incredible. We know demand is there for well-sourced, healthy food that tastes good. And we know people want it in a way that fits their lifestyle. We’re excited to deliver both to even more people with SŌW To Go.”
John Fahlgren said their commitment to the vision extends to every decision they make.
“There is an undeniable, science-backed connection between food and mood. We embrace the integrative approach to medicine and are driven by the expression ‘Good Food, Good Mood,” Fahlgren said. “Being rooted in science is important to the brand, but the story only sells if the food surpasses everyone’s expectations. Good isn’t enough. You’ve got to be consistently great, which is what our incredible team aspires to be every day. And honestly, we’re only getting started.”
In Kaufman Development, Fahlgren said, they found “the perfect partner.”
“Opening SŌW To Go at Gravity and Green|House makes so much sense, because Kaufman Development has a proven record of delivering exceptional communities and is unwavering in its commitment to wellness,” Fahlgren added. “To me, it was a match made in heaven, because philosophically, we’re authentically aligned. We share an ethos, and that alone opens the door for magic to happen.”
Kaufman Development Founder and CEO Brett Kaufman said the concept is an inspiring addition to both Gravity and Green|House, which are both wellness-centered communities.
“Sunny and John are on a mission to help people live their healthiest, happiest lives, both physically and mentally, which is so inspiring,” Kaufman said. “I personally love their food, love their passion, and love this new concept, and I’m thrilled they’ve chosen to grow their sought-after brand in not just one but two of our communities. I’m excited for how this will start—and how it will grow.”
Gravity is the world’s largest conscious community—a vibrant, art-filled, wellness-and-impact-inspired project including apartments, offices, restaurants, retailers and more.
It stretches across about 15 acres in Franklinton and offers spaces, events and programs that give people opportunities to connect, collaborate and be inspired.
SŌW To Go at Gravity will occupy a 1,200-square-foot space that includes limited seating and opens to Gravity’s expansive public courtyard along Broad Street. SŌW To Go at Gravity is expected to open in spring 2024.
It will be open seven days a week from 8 am to 6 pm, serving the same full breakfast and lunch menu as SŌW Plated.
Green|House Short North, a new development, is slated to complete construction in early summer 2024. SŌW To Go at Green|House Short North, a roughly 700-square-foot space, is expected to open later this year.
