AMERICA’S COMFORT FOOD: A CHEESE STORY
The Grilled Cheese Sandwich has been an iconic staple food for generations in American households. The recipe has remained largely unchanged since its humble beginnings in the 1920’s but for a paradigm shift that took place in the 1960’s, when the top slice of bread became common, and the modern notion of a grilled cheese sandwich was born.
Generally comprised of nothing more than butter and cheese sandwiched in between 2 slices of bread, the quaint grilled cheese, in all its uninspiring glory, continues to attract a cult-like following long after the good ole’-griddle days in Momma’s kitchen.
Fast forward nearly 100 years later and the lackluster recipe scores a much-needed reboot, courtesy of a nostalgically trendy gourmet grilled cheese shop named New York Grilled Cheese Company. Transforming a seemingly ordinary recipe, this extraordinary restaurant concept dishes out a dramatic makeover, inside and out, taking the classic grilled cheese out of the frying pan and into the… waffle press? SWEET CHEESES! WE CREATED A MUENSTER!
With an unwavering commitment to originality, not only is New York Grilled Cheese changing the way we think of the grilled cheese, it’s also changing the way we eat it. As the Home Of The Waffled Grilled Cheese®, each and every ooey gooey melt is a hot mess served hot off the press, crafted of the finest ingredients and savoriest of recipes that will manage to impress even the pickiest of eaters and sassiest of foodies.

Humble Beginnings: An Inspirational Story
They say that some of the greatest success stories emanate from the most unlikely of circumstances, and New York Grilled Cheese is one such story. What originally began as a fledgling self-serve frozen yogurt concept that showed early signs of success and attracted a small but loyal following, eventually transitioned into a bustling gourmet grilled cheese shop that quickly gained notoriety beyond its South Florida origins.
The father-son team that first opened the yogurt store soon realized that the frozen yogurt market in South Florida was oversaturated and, as such, its growth potential would be hampered by the singular nature of a yogurt shop’s menu. In a moment of inspiration, and with their entrepreneurial spirit and knack for fabulous foods under their belt, New York Grilled Cheese was the happy result.
The uncanny success and ensuing popularity that followed, all in a remarkably short period of time, transcended even the owners’ wildest dreams and expectations. Capitalizing on a favorite childhood comfort food that has withstood the test of time, the dynamic management team reinvigorated a stagnant staple and manifested it into a lucrative opportunity that appeals to people of all ages and walks of life.
