Today and Beyond
In 2010, Tom H. Sween became president/COO. In 2013, the company received the Minnesota Family Business Award and was featured in the Twin Cities Business magazine. In 2014, the company realigned its business from three units into multiple divisions, which include: Brand & Innovation, Sales, Distribution Solutions, Operations and Support Services. On April 20, 2017, a significant event occurred at the Board Meeting: the members of the board approved Tom E. Sween’s recommendation that Tom H. Sween take over as the chief executive officer (CEO) and owner of E.A. Sween Company. That means that E.A. Sween Company is a rarity: a third-generation family-owned business that is still family-owned and successful.
E.A. Sween Company proudly makes over 70 million sandwiches each year, distributing them throughout the country via Wholesale, Direct Store Delivery (DSD) and Combined Distribution Centers (CDC).
