Our Story

Knead Sandwich Shop started as a dream for two South Carolina natives, who wanted to share their famous hometown sandwich with the Charleston area. When asking a Beaufort local “Where do I have to eat while visiting?”, everyone responds back with two words; Alvin Ord’s. The acclaimed bread, comprised of a secret recipe, is made from scratch daily and stacked high with fresh meats and vegetables of the highest quality. This is what makes this Lowcountry sandwich so special. So how did two longtime friends and owners, Ryan Brown and Owen Plair, get into the sandwich industry? With the mentorship of Tom and Marie Lewis, owners of Alvin Ord’s Beaufort, along with Brown and Plair’s extensive business experience, they were able to make their dream a reality. They left behind their successful careers and began training full-time at Alvin Ord’s, retaining 34 years of recipes and ideologies, to perfect the same product they have been so passionate about since childhood. Knead Sandwich Shop strives to be the local sandwich shop you can rely on for a quality sandwich at a great price, all while getting the hometown hospitality you deserve in Charleston.

Knead Sandwich Shop will be opening Summer 2018 at the Indigo Village Shopping Center in West Ashley. Follow Knead on Instagram @kneadsandwichshop to keep up with progress and announcement of their grand opening date! They cannot wait to share their Lowcountry sandwich with the people of Charleston!
