Drew Hedlund

Tradd's | Charleston, SC

A native of Naples, FL, Drew Hedlund has been working in restaurants since he was a kid. From working as an expediter to serving tables to working the line, he’s been involved in nearly every role in a number of different restaurants.

A 1999 graduate of Johnson & Wales University, Drew served as the Resident Chef of Dewees Island and as the Chef de Cuisine at the former 101 Pitt in Mt. Pleasant. Hedlund joined the team at Fleet Landing in 2005 just after opening, ascending to Head Chef and helping make the restaurant the success it is today.

When Weesie + Tradd were concepting Tradd’s, they looked no further than tapping Drew has their Executive Chef. His dedication to his team, positive attitude, and acumen in the kitchen makes him an ideal choice to launch Tradd’s, a modern, American restaurant inspired by warm and welcoming hospitality, gracious and accommodating service, and sophisticated style.
