Despite proximity to Tabernacle, council says new sandwich shop can sell alcohol

LOGAN – A new sandwich shop downtown got the help it needed from the Logan City Council at Tuesday evening’s meeting. Ava Grenny of the new Even Steven’s sandwich shop got written consent asking the State Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission to grant a variance to the community location proximity requirements. She said the business had been deemed a little too close to the Logan Tabernacle.

“We like to work with a lot of local vendors and we also do a local pairing of our sandwiches with beers from a local brewery,” she said. “We don’t do any advertising, we don’t post it, we don’t put in our windows. It’s a very small part of ourselves, but it is in our brand and it’s an important part of Even Stevens as a whole I guess.”

The request was granted but the council was not unanimous in its decision. Council member Gene Needham agreed with a couple of people from the community that alcohol causes serious problems and it shouldn’t be allowed in the downtown shop.
