Nate Hybl, the creator of gusto!, grew up in small-town Hazlehurst, Georgia before taking on the big stage as a college and professional athlete, spending most of his time tossing a ball on the field. However, he was hungry for more, with a vision for a product he personally craved. For five years, he researched cuisines and ingredients, discovering his passion for bold flavors and unique combinations, and learned the restaurant business by working a variety of jobs. Through this journey, gusto! was born, a healthful brand disrupting the fast food industry with fresh, high-quality options that don’t sacrifice speed or taste. Eight years later, Nate has successfully opened eleven locations throughout the metro Atlanta area, with three more debuting this year, all with the mission of expanding what it means to eat healthy fast food.
