Mr. Goodyear's Neighborhood - Aura Rhoades, Even Stevens Street Vice

Even Stevens is just a little sandwich shop in Ogden.  Up until a couple of weeks ago, they didn’t even have a parking lot.  This little sandwich shop, with fantastic tater tots by the way, has donated 50,000 sandwiches to Ogden’s local non-profits organizations since April. Even Stevens might be little, but they’re a big deal in Ogden.  

In this episode of The Banyan Collective’s, Mr. Goodyear’s Neighborhood, we parked the Tan Van in Even Stevens freshly paved parking lot and sat down with the ‘Street Vice’ herself, Aura Rhoades.  

Aura does the business-to-business marketing for Even Stevens and maintains the alliance with the four Ogden community non-profit organizations Even Stevens partners with.  The business model at Even Stevens is genius in its simplicity; for every sandwich they sell, they donate a sandwich to charity.  

Before she introduced Even Stevens Ogden non-profit partners, Aura gave us a quick narrative about how this business model works, why they do what they do and the impact they’ve had in the community.  

What they’re doing at Even Stevens truly is inspiring, we hope their goodwill inspires the whole business community to take a little less and give a lot more.

We'll release one interview a week for the next three weeks with the Even Stevens non-profit partners. Check back Wednesday's for new MGN Episodes.
