Apparently the grilled-cheese-tomato-soup fast-casual concept was the smartest idea ever because the rapidly expanding local franchise Tom+Chee is headed to Texas.

Apparently the grilled-cheese-tomato-soup fast-casual concept was the smartest idea ever because the rapidly expanding local franchise Tom+Chee is headed to Texas. 

Founders Corey Ward and Trew Quackenbush have partnered with Tunica-Biloxi Holdings to expand into Sugarland and Katy, Texas, just outside of Houston.

“We're excited to bring the Tom+Chee concept to the Houston market,” said Andre Gallardo, CEO of Tunica-Biloxi Holdings, in a recent press release. “With a range of salads, soups and the amazing Grilled Cheese Donut, we think Tom+Chee will be right at home here.”

 

Originally started as a food tent on Fountain Square, Tom+Chee has enjoyed explosive growth since the founders pitched their business on ABC’s Shark Tank in May 2013. The Tom+Chee franchise currently has 19 stores in operation and 170 stores under contract in 20 states, including Tennessee, North Carolina, Michigan, New Jersey and Georgia.
