A restaurant chain that specializes in grilled cheese sandwiches is coming to Hamburg. The Tom + Chee franchise will be opening its doors on December 2nd on War Admiral Way. The restaurant was started by Trew Quackenbush and Corey Ward, by selling out of a tent in Cincinnati’s Fountain Square in 2009, but now have a total of six locations in downtown Cincinnati, Newport and Louisville. The pair appeared on the television series Shark Tank in May where they asked Mark Cuban for an investment. After recieving $600,000 to develop their brand across the country, they are planning on opening around 100 stores, from Atlanta all the way to Kansas City.
In addition to its variety of grilled cheese sandwiches, Tom + Chee also sells a grilled cheese donut and features soups such as cheeseburger and pepperoni pizza. “We always say, we make grilled cheese for the kid at heart,” Ward said.
