Tom & Chee Home


Tom & Chee is on the move. We are expanding outward from our Cincinnati roots and looking for enthusiastic franchise partners who want to bring our iconic grilled cheeses and delicious soups, as well as our legendary customer service, to their communities.
Available Markets

"Tom & Chee has tremendous brand recognition," says Roger David, CEO and President. "Initially, buzz grew organically when Tom & Chee was simply serving ice skaters in downtown Cincinnati. However, brand awareness and franchising both skyrocketed after an appearance on the hit TV Show Shark Tank. Today Tom & Chee has never been more poised for growth. We’ve released our 2.0 model with a focus on franchisee success, and have matured a desired brand into a desired business."

Currently, we’re looking to grow these available markets and territories:

  • Ohio
  • Kentucky
  • Indiana
  • Georgia
  • Oklahoma
  • Florida
  • Pennsylvania
  • Tennessee
  • New York
