Brooklyn Whiz Turns NYPD Van into Portable Grilled Cheese Biz
With a little TLC, an old NYPD van became a grilled cheese-centric food truck. "Morris Grilled Cheese" is quickly becoming known in the neighborhoods of DUMBO, Chelsea, and Midtown, serving up sandwiches and egg creams.
“I wanted to take a step into something that wasn’t high risk,” said Jacober who launched Morris Grilled Cheese last January selling nosh like the $10 Croque Monsieur melt - smoked ham, pickled spring onion with provolone.
“It’s not like investing in a restaurant where the start up costs are much higher,” said Jacober who lives in Park Slope and is a former cook at fancy spots like Per Se in Columbus Circle.
