When Ryan and his girlfriend, Stephanie lost their architecture jobs, they decided to go on a 7 week unemployment opportunity road trip to visit friends and family across the country. While on the road trip, they developed an idea for a sandwich shop with menu items loosely based off their travels. Using their architectural design background, Ryan and Stephanie created the concept of Rybread, a family run business that prides itself on creating a fun atmosphere for customers and staff members a like.
