Even Stevens - Downtown
When founder Steve Down saw the opportunity to use his skills as an entrepreneur to turn the food service industry into a force for social good, he ran with it. A team of foodies got involved, non-profits became partners, and what was just a big idea became a sandwich shop with a cause - a place for real, sustainable change. We opened our first shop in Salt Lake City on June 24th, 2014. When we donated over 30,000 sandwiches to local non-profits in just six months, we knew were on to something. Community is our recipe book. Our hometown has been a bigger influence than any textbook or viral trend. Craft food makers, artists, musicians and businesses from our neighborhood have all contributed to our growing brand. Unlike the cookie cutter chains of yesterday - we’re committed to locality, in every community we set up shop. Food connects everyone. By pulling on the symbolic white glove of good service, we’ve made a commitment to do good while snubbing the white-bread rhetoric and the empty-calories of purposeless work. Sounds like a pretty selfless idea. But let's not forget, it feels good to do good.
