St. George, UT (PRWEB) October 12, 2015
An award-winning restaurant incorporating the buy-one-give-business model is coming to Saint George Blvd in November.
Even Stevens Sandwiches is a Salt Lake native craft-casual restaurant serving sandwiches, salads, bites under $5, breakfast, and locally-sourced items (craft beer, specialty coffee, and bakery sweets) unique to each store’s location. By offering fresh updates on nostalgic recipes, the “anti-cookie cutter” brand nods to tradition while celebrating creativity. The concept, founded in June of 2014, was awarded Best New Concept by the Utah Restaurant Association in May of 2015.
“Food service is more than a job. It’s a collective belief system. We’re growing fast and welcoming like-minded individuals to join our team.” Says Michael McHenry, Even Stevens’ Chief Operations Officer.
Beyond serving customers, Even Stevens is “a sandwich shop with a cause”. For every sandwich sold, they donate a sandwich to a local non-profit partner. Since opening their first restaurant on June 24th 2014, the brand has donated over 170,000 sandwiches to the Salt Lake community. Allowing their non-profit partners to save cash on feeding community members in need and instead direct their resources towards life-changing programs.
“[Even Stevens] has allowed us to serve breakfast this summer for the first time because of their donations. We seriously couldn't do it without Even Stevens.” - Megan Foster, Director of Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Salt Lake.
Even Stevens’ St. George location will be donating sandwiches through three local non-profits: Switchpoint, the Dove Center and the Utah Food Bank’s Southern Distribution Center.
The restaurant will also offer customers specialty coffee from River Rock Roasting Co. in La Verkin, and carry Moab Brewery craft beer.
“Food connects everyone, and community is our recipe book,” says Jamie Coates, Even Stevens’ Creative Director. “While supporting local non-profits, we embrace and activate local culture”. Every Even Stevens upholds the character of the surrounding city and engages with local artists, crafters and businesses to make their guest experience unique. Live local musicians grace the shop weekly, and local artwork is commissioned for the shop’s walls.
Even Stevens Sandwiches plans on opening more locations throughout Utah within the next year. Follow Even Stevens on Instagram @evenstevenssandwiches and Facebook /evenstevenssandwiches
