Thank you for coming to support the GRILLED CHEESUS™!  What started a few years ago as a fun idea is on the verge of being realized!      

WHAT IS GRILLED CHEESUS?

The GRILLED CHEESUS™ is an electronic sandwich press that toasts the face of Jesus onto your sandwich bread!  What a great way to inspire your family at the dining room table or your children in the lunchroom. It’s also a fun way to impress your friends at a party or the congregation at your church coffee hour!  However you slice it, the GRILLED CHEESUS™ lets you bring little grilled miracles to mealtime, snack time, or anytime.   

WHO IS GRILLED CHEESUS?

We are Rob and Meg, a young couple from Brooklyn, NY that LOVES grilled cheese and are pretty sure Jesus was an awesome guy.   We grew up around the corner from one another and met on the first day of kindergarten.  We just can’t shake each other!  Now we’ve been working to bring the GRILLED CHEESUS™ to life for 3 years.  When an episode of the hit Fox TV show ”GLEE” titled ‘Grilled Cheesus’ aired in October of 2010, we knew we had something special.  This serendipitous event (or miracle!) brought our trademark into the cultural lexicon and provided the spark we needed to bring GRILLED CHEESUS™ to life.  After a lot of research and design (that included pounds and pounds of cheese and many loaves of bread), we finally feel ready to launch GRILLED CHEESUS™.

WHY SUPPORT GRILLED CHEESUS?

We hope the GRILLED CHEESUS™ is the first of many inspirational and fun products we create. We also hope that one day we will find a way to make an impact on the world, using the GRILLED CHEESUS™ as a vehicle to do that. We feel an enormous responsibility to use our time, energy, and any success we have to fostering positivity and being a healthy influence on our community.
