Chattanooga’s newest food truck, Grate Melts Mobile Grill, invites the public to its debut at Sunday’s Collegedale Market. Ooltewah residents and husband and wife duo, Chris and Julie Edmondson, are hitting the road with their mouth-watering grilled cheese inspired sandwiches.

Grate Melts Mobile Grill serves sourdough bread from Chattanooga’s own Bluff View Bakery. ‘The Really Gouda’ sandwich, already a huge hit, is made with local “The Chef and his Wife” Smoked Gouda Pimento Cheese. “In addition to working with other local businesses, we slow roast our own meats and shred all of our cheeses,” says owner Julie Edmondson. “Our menu features sandwiches grilled cheese connoisseurs of all ages will love.”

“We’ve already been overwhelmed with the positive feedback and support Chattanooga has shown,” says Ms. Edmondson. “We’re excited to launch our family owned and operated business here in Chattanooga and we’re looking forward to growing the business in this community.”
