It takes some really amazing people to run this business. We're fortunate to have an exceptional group of folks as part of Team Cheeserie. 

We figured you might like to learn a little about the folks that help us melt the hearts of Music City. We'll be showcasing different Team Cheeserie peeps here on our blog by asking them a little cheesy Q&A.

So take a minute to meet Ben!

What's your name? 
Benjamin Lusk

Where are you from? 
Jacksonville, Florida

How long have you been at the Grilled Cheeserie? 
Since the Hillsboro location opened, almost exactly a year.

What is something surprising about working at the Grilled Cheeserie that most people would suspect?
We're like the Disney World of restaurants- you can't leave unhappy. We'll remake anything, fix anything, and bend over backwards. Even if it's just because you changed your mind. How sad would it be to leave a melt shop with a frown?

What is your favorite menu item and why?
On menu: the Harvest Melt. With turkey, Brie, pesto, and roasted squash, it's like if a sandwich could yell "Happy Thanksgiving!"

Off menu: the "Rooster Bowl". Tater tots with house-made cheese sauce, bacon bits, jalapeño relish, a fried egg and pulled chicken. It's a glorious combination, not for the faint of heart.

What's your favorite story about working at Grilled Cheeserie?
Oh that's easy. At the end of my shift one afternoon, I managed to break an entire giant glass jar of our house-made tot sauce all over the condiment bar. I think it smelled like horseradish over there for a month. Ouch.
