Morristown Record has a profile of this newish restaurant. One big benefit is it is in a area that's less parking challenged than other more popular areas.
The Grilled Cheese Factory's menu offers 19 varieties of grilled sandwiches — from $4.95 to $7.95. Customers can choose from eight cheeses and four types of bread. Also available are slices of tomato, onion, lettuce, roasted peppers and sauerkraut. Meat options include turkey, roast beef, ham, bacon, Taylor ham, pulled pork and grilled chicken.
A mainstay of most customers is the "original" grilled cheese sandwich. Other top sellers include the Roma (grilled chicken, roasted peppers, mozzarella with pesto sauce), the buffalo chicken (grilled chicken, cheddar and buffalo sauce) and their cheesy mac and rib with barbecue pork and macaroni and cheese.
Sigh. Glen was ahead of his time.
This restaurant has the benefit of excellent location in a part of town with a vigorous night life / bar scene. It's three blocks from the train station, has a lot of free parking (in the evening) behind it, and is twixt the bar district in Morristown. People walking to and from the bars are a natural market for the restaurant.
"Peter Kiewit looked for three things in hiring people. He looked for integrity, intelligence and energy. And he said if a person didn’t have the first…that the latter two would kill him. Because if they don’t have integrity, you want ‘em dumb and lazy. You don’t want ‘em smart and energetic.”
