The place we all have known to love and indulge in has expanded its doors and its gooey cheesy goodness. The Happy Grilled Cheese is a food truck that serves the North Florida community with gourmet grilled cheese creations that are like no other. The food truck has been pumping out amazing meals, and has announced that it will expand its horizons to a large space in Five Point.s

Besides the Downtown location, Jacksonville Beach is also about to get a permanent cheese filled location. The Happy Grilled Cheese Truck is merging its magic into a walk up window connected to Tavern on 1st Street. This will be an express kitchen that will provide happy costumers with limited and amazing menu options. Owner Anthony Hashem has created this business and has seen significant improvement in grilled cheese lovers across Jacksonville.


Bar owner Steve Chelgren of Tavern on 1st Street tells the Jacksonville Business Journal, “I was blown away by the locals’ appreciation for the Happy Grilled Cheese truck,” Chelgren said. “It makes me excited to bring something that’s a good quality, popular product.”
