The sandwich shop is known for both what it dubs “craft-casual” fare as well as its charitable business model. For every sandwich sold, Even Stevens donates one sandwich to a local nonprofit. The chain is looking to grow where it has a built-in fanbase, asking guests where it should go next with a button on its website. As it grows, the chain has maintained its modern vibe through its voice (with sandwich names such as Mihami Vice) as well as by driving online ordering.
