The Grilled Cheese Truck Surpasses Minimum Funding Goal on MicroVentures and Unleashes Amplified Stretch Goal Perks

Now calling all grilled cheese lovers, food truck enthusiasts, entrepreneurs and investors, to help bring the Grilled Cheese Truck to more cities and towns across the nation!

LOS ANGELES, CA – 23 Mar, 2017 – The Grilled Cheese Truck (“GCT” or the “Company”), a gourmet chef-driven food truck and restaurant brand expanding to the national marketplace, today is thrilled to announce that with the help of over 180 investors, the Company has met and surpassed its minimum funding goal for its Title III offering on the First Democracy VC crowdfunding portal.

In celebration of this achievement, the Grilled Cheese Truck has unleashed an amplified investor perks program that includes more GCT funds and T-shirts, and brand new catered event perks such as the Grilled Cheese Truck Hour for up to 15 people and Shindig for up to 35 people in the Los Angeles area, and the Grilled Cheese Truck Slam for up to 75 people and Soiree for up to 150 people anywhere in the U.S. – both include a private cooking session with the founder and culinary force behind the GCT brand, Dave Danhi.

Now anyone, GCT customers, fans, friends, followers, regardless of income level or wealth, can invest in The Grilled Cheese Truck with as little as a $100 and receive a perk. To view the Grilled Cheese Truck’s new Title III investor perks program, click here.

With the funds raised, the Company intends to capitalize on its established brand through the addition of more gourmet food trucks, as well as new micro-retail, pop-ups, kiosks and food carts throughout the U.S. and internationally. A major component of the Company’s business model is a national franchise marketing program with an emphasis on discounted franchise opportunities to U.S. military veterans that have served in Iraq and Afghanistan.  

“First, on behalf of the entire GCT team, I’d like to acknowledge and thank the investors who have publicly supported and financially contributed to our campaign thus far. Because of their early support, we have met and soared past our minimum funding goal – a huge accomplishment given the nascent stage of Title III,” commented AJ Cervantes, Chairman of Big Cheese Inc., dba The Grilled Cheese Truck.

Cervantes added, “As a sign of our gratitude, the Grilled Cheese Truck is officially upgrading and amplifying the entire investor perks program. The more money we raise, the more GCT franchise opportunities we can bring to military veterans and entrepreneurs here in the U.S. and abroad.”

“Small acts and small investments go a long way toward building our future. It is our hope that, the people will own a slice of the Grilled Cheese Truck and be the force responsible for bringing our crispy yet gooey innovative grilled cheese business to grilled cheese lovers, veterans and entrepreneurs, in cities and towns across the country and the world,” stated Dave Danhi, Grilled Cheese Truck Founder and Chief Creative Officer.
