A native of Naples, Florida, Drew Hedlund has been working in restaurants since his youth. “I’ve done it all,” he shares, “from working as an expediter to serving tables to working behind the scenes in the kitchen.” After graduating from Johnson and Wales University in 1999, he served as the Resident Chef of Dewees Island and as the Chef de Cuisine at the former 101 Pitt in Mt. Pleasant. Hedlund teamed up a second time with 101 Pitt’s Jim Epper at Fleet Landing just after its opening and has served as Head Chef for nine years. He’s an active participant in the SC Aquarium’s Sustainable Seafood Initiative and helped Fleet achieve the SSI’s Partner of the Year award in 2011. When he’s not cooking, you’ll find Drew spending time on the water with his favorite folks: his wife, Kelly, and his sons, Kiernan and Rory.
