The Grilled Cheese Bus – Powered by Community, Fueled by YUM!

Tuesday, May 10th, 2011


The Grilled Cheese Bus is a socially driven project in North Carolina to promote community activism with youth and working students who are most impacted by social injustice. The founder of the project converted a school bus into a driving snack bar that serves grilled cheese sandwiches with a dip of tomato soup!

The young participants will earn a solid wage, develop job skills, learn entrepreneurial principals and get involved in marketing, menu and staffing decisions related to the bus.

Through a Kickstarter campaign, the group has been fundraising for months to acquire financial donations and community support! As soon as the bus is profitable, donations will be made to community projects that improve the planet and work for equity and justice.

By the way, the bus will be locatable via GPS soon! So, stop by for a social gourmet delight!

It’s no joke – April is National Grilled Cheese Month!

Thursday, March 31st, 2011


You surely know that April 1st is April Fools’ Day. But did you know that it’s also the start of National Grilled Cheese Month?

Actually we don’t know if it is a real holiday because there is no official source of information. Is it a real government sanctioned commemoration? A campaign of cheese marketers? Or just a myth?

Wherever it comes from, grilled cheese indeed has a great history with its origin in the 1920s when inexpensive sliced bread and cheese became easily available. Grilled cheese sandwiches became popular during the Great Depression as people were short of money.

Nowadays, those sandwiches can be found in many creative ways on our restaurant menus.
For many of us it is a staple of childhood. Don’t you remember your mom making grilled cheese sandwiches as a quick and easy afternoon snack? Wasn’t it one of the first meals you cooked by yourself because it’s just so easy to make? We think that everyone of us has it’s own personal grilled cheese history.

So, why not devote a whole month to one of America’s most popular meals? You can participate in this culinary celebration by making one of our original gourmet grilled cheese recipes:
