E.A. Sween Company proudly makes over 70 million sandwiches a year, distributing them all over the country through Wholesale, Direct Store Delivery (DSD) and Combined Distribution Centers (CDC).
In 1954, Earl August Sween found an ad in the Wall Street Journal for a Stewart Sandwich Franchise. In 1955, Earl closed the deal and started Stewart Sandwiches in Bloomington, Minnesota. From that humble start, the company expanded to Duluth, MN and then into Iowa, Wisconsin, the Dakotas, Wyoming and Montana over the following decade. In 1967, the company moved to its current Eden Prairie location and opened a new 20,000-square-foot facility.
