We have chosen new members for our Kitchen Cabinet.  We are thrilled to have a selected group of 14 meet at our Corporate Office in San Diego on March 23. Over 8,000 Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes Club Veg members from around the country applied to be Kitchen Cabinet® members this year and 14 will be representing guests’ perspectives on recipes, service elements in the restaurant, upcoming promotions and much more.

We have a great group of reps that we are looking forward to meeting, who knows, you might see a blog from them on what they thought about our offices and their experience. Take a look at a few of this year’s cabinet:

Regina – Ft. Myers, FL
Favorite Menu Item: Wonton Chicken Happiness Tossed Salad
Her take on Sweet Tomatoes: “It has really good salads. The soups generally are great as are the corn muffins and whipped honey butter.”
Connie- Tampa, FL
Sweet Tomatoes is one of my all time favorite places to eat with my family. There’s something healthy for everyone including my picky daughter.
Blogs about Sweet Tomatoes at
Scott – Houston, TX
Favorite Menu Item:  Chicken Pot Pie Soup
Visits Sweet Tomatoes 2- 3 times a month
Linda – San Diego, CA

Her take on Souplantation: “Lots of veggies, great soups and leave room for chocolate chip cookies.”

Jacque- Phoenix, AZ
Favorite Menu Item: Salad
Her take on Sweet Tomatoes: “Amazing choices, Love the salads, pasta, bread, pizza, soups, potatoes, fruit, desserts. Everything in one place. One place to please everyone.”

Congrats to the Kitchen Cabinet members, hope they will be as grateful as we were to be chosen to help such a wonderful family such as Garden Fresh. We do miss you !! We hope some day that we will be able to all come together again in reunion of such great memories. Just one question, Do we still keep our titles as we enter each of the establisments that we have freguented, and continue to help them in that capacity?
Thanks and as always my Best, Marney Wheeler

Congrats to the newest board menbers. How lucky you will be to join the collaboration of new fun and exciting enticing ideas! I did apply, and I’ll keep on trying. Looking forward to your innovations.
Enjoy the GREEN!

Can we send suggestions for consideration by the 2010 Kitchen Cabinet?

Kitchen Cabinet: I love Sweet Tomatoes, however please take up my biggest “complaint” – A sugar free dessert all the time, not just when the corporate office decides that this week and not all 52 weeks will be the week that its on the menu. I’ve called the Cust Svc line to complain and nothing gets done about this. Diabetics should not feel disenfranchised in a restaruant chain that offer such healthy food.

Following this as Connie is a Twitterpal – and Sweet Tomatoes is our family’s all-time favorite restaurant.
Congrats to both ST/SP and the new Cabinet members! :)

I would love to become a future Kitchen Cabinet member! What a wonderful way to explore this fantastic restaurant and to give our persepective on what is offered. Will be looking into how to join. Thanks!


Laura Thursday, December 23, 2010 at 2:25 pm

I can’t believe I missed this! It should be me thanking you for letting me be on the Cabinet. It is so exciting to see some of the items that we talked about and tasted come to fruition. Love to the gang there :)

Sounds like you should be gearing up soon to select the next Kitchen Cabinet. How do I apply? Our family has eaten at your restaurants for over 20 years in about a dozen cities, and never get tired of it. I would LOVE the chance to be part of keeping you in the forefront of healthy, fun and economical dining.
