Cheesy Street Grill has a versatile menu to choose from. They serve outstanding grilled cheese sandwiches and other comfort foods like decadent macaroni & cheese, potato tots, salads, creamy soups, juicy boneless beef short ribs along with goat cheese, fig jam, and red-wine caramelized onions. However, to avoid things getting monotonous & repetitive, they offer the customers a privilege to skip the menu, choose the kind of bread they want, and select the toppings to customize their grilled cheese sandwiches. These options appeal to all age groups, and both vegetarians and meat lovers. Lisa explains, “Cheesy Street Grill has a simple operation that consistently delivers a quality product. It does not require a large kitchen buildout, as it’s all ventless cooking. We have a streamlined process, so minimal staff is needed, thus reducing labor costs. Our high-quality ingredients and winning flavor combinations further set us apart from our competitors. Also, we have virtual zero food waste with our ingredients. The training process is quick, and our POS system is robust and easy to learn. In the end, outstanding food quality, and superior customer service are the features that make the customers fall in love with us and keep them coming back.” Quite evidently, Cheesy Street Grill been featured on The Rachael Ray and Phantom Gourmet Shows and is a proud recipient of the 2018 Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce Best Up and Coming Small Business Award.
Despite such successes, the thought of franchising the business did not cross Lisa’s mind. She shares, “I am extremely hard working and driven, and knew the pairing of my love of cooking and my corporate discipline would be a winning combination. I decided to franchise my brand due to the demand from my customers demanding that I open more stores. Customers asked me all the time “Is this a franchise? Well if it isn’t, it should be”!” With the ever-increasing customer demand and popularity of their food, Lisa finally decided to do it and soon in 2019 sold her first franchise which is located in Wellesley, MA in the Boston Sports Institute.
