To celebrate National Grilled Cheese Day on April 12, Tom+Chee will be offering $2 classic grilled cheese sandwiches.
“For us, grilled cheese is more than a sandwich, it’s a way of life,” said Tom+Chee founders Trew Quackenbush and Corey Ward in a news release. “Ever since we sold our first grilled cheese sandwich more than seven years ago, we’ve been working to bring that cheesey goodness to the hearts and stomachs of customers all across the country. National Grilled Cheese Day is the perfect opportunity to share our love of the Chee with America.”
Today, Americans consume more than 2 billion grilled cheese sandwiches per year. At Tom+Chee, customers can build their own grilled cheese with unique ingredients like bacon, pepperoni, grilled onions, or basil pesto. For a more traditional sandwich, customers can choose the original Tom+Chee and cup of one of the two types of homemade tomato soups or from an array of daily soup specials, made in-house daily.
According to the ever reliable internet, “Cooked bread and cheese is an ancient food according to food historians, popular across the world in many cultures. Evidence indicates that, in the U.S., the modern version of the grilled cheese sandwich originated in the 1920s when inexpensive sliced bread and American cheese became readily available.”
Tom+Chee, which got a boost from a Shark Tank investment, opened its doors in Fort Worth at 8901 Tehama Ridge Pkwy #137 in March.
Also in Fort Worth is locally-owned Lee’s Grilled Cheese at 5040 North Tarrant Parkway #136.
