During January, SoDel Concepts’ 12 restaurants are spotlighting one of the country’s favorite cold-weather comfort foods: grilled cheese.
“Grilled Cheese Month is one of our most popular promotions,” said Doug Ruley, vice president of culinary operations. “Guests appreciate all the innovative ways that our chefs approach this satisfying sandwich – just about anything goes.”
