Cincinnati-based restaurant Tom+Chee is celebrating the opening of its first Texas location today in Richardson’s CityLine development. The 62-seat, 2,400-square-foot restaurant is located at 1251 State Street Suite 800 Richardson, street level of Three CityLine. An additional 10 seats will be accessible when the patio opens.
“We are excited to introduce this fresh, fun, new concept to Dallas/Fort Worth and Texas,” said local franchisees Greg and Wendy Sippel. “Tom+Chee reminds us of the comfort foods of days past, but with a twist. We believe the cheesy goodness of Tom+Chee will be a great addition to CityLine.”
Specializing in tomato soup and grilled cheese, Tom+Chee is known for its fresh ingredients and quirky takes on comfort food classics. From the vegetarian Hippy+Chee to the offbeat Grilled Cheese Donut, Tom+Chee offers 20+ grilled cheese sandwiches, plus fresh salads, three versions of tomato soup, and an endless array of specials. The entire menu is made fresh, with no fryers, freezers or microwaves, and offers a variety of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options.
Originally started as a food tent in Cincinnati, Tom+Chee has enjoyed explosive growth since the founders pitched their business on ABC’s “Shark Tank” in May 2013. The Tom+Chee franchise is rapidly growing and currently has 170 stores under contract in 20 states, including Ohio, Kentucky, Michigan, New Jersey, Colorado and Georgia.
The Richardson Tom+Chee will be open seven days a week from 11:00am to 9pm.
