A grilled cheese sandwich and a bowl of tomato soup is one of those combinations that comforts us all instantly. Fo’ Cheezy Twisted Meltz took that sandwich—and others—up a notch with its own creations like the Mac N’ Rib, Triple OG, and their Big Poppa. The business started out as a food truck before opening a brick-and-mortar location last summer at 6305 Gulf Blvd. in St. Pete Beach.

In a Facebook Live video posted last week, owner Robert Hesse announced a new location will open in Downtown St. Pete at 111 3rd St. N  in the space formerly occupied by Five Guys. 

“It’s finally official! Keys in hand! DTSP here we come!!,” they wrote

Besides sandwiches, Fo’ Cheezy Twisted Meltz will have an array of other menu items for customers to dine on. Pair a grilled cheese with dishes like the Slap Yo’ Mama Mater soup, a side of their Trailer Trash Sundae, a Strange Cloudz for dessert, or wash it all down with one of their Purple Drank flavors. A portion of all sales will go towards his non-profit No Kid 86’d, which helps Tampa Bay area at-risk youth gain opportunities and mentorship.

“It’s not about my carbon footprint but my morality footprint I’m leaving as a legacy,” he said. 

Hesse has big plans for his grand opening including a yellow carpet, a couple sneak peeks, and music. He wants to start a “First Mondays” event with an open mic night where poets and musicians can perform their art.

Hesse told Creative Loafing Tampa Bay the restaurant is scheduled to open in June. It’ll be open daily 11 a.m.-4 a.m.

“I’m not coming in quietly, I’m coming in with a bang,” he said.
