The Grilled Cheese Truck Announces Delivery of First State-of-the Art Custom Built Food Truck

Delivery Is the First of a Potential 100 Trucks Pursuant to an Agreement With Co-Venture Partner American Food Truck, LLC

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwired - August 25, 2015) - The Grilled Cheese Truck, Inc. (OTCQB: GRLD), an emerging growth public company capitalizing on opportunities within the burgeoning gourmet food truck sector, announced today the company has received the first next-generation truck pursuant to a right of first refusal for up to 100 purpose-built gourmet food trucks for The Grilled Cheese Truck. The announcement was made jointly by Robert Lee, Executive Chairman of The Grilled Cheese Truck and Mark Parkinson, President of American Food Truck Group, Tustin, California.

The first truck has been delivered pursuant to a Right of First Refusal agreement executed on August 21, 2015 which provides GCT the first right to take delivery of up to 100 trucks.

The R&D team at American Food Truck spent over twenty months in collaboration with The Grilled Cheese Truck staff to create a state-of-the-art coach. The team took a "bottoms up" strategy to create an advanced coach with considerations ranging from ergonomics and long term reliability to food economics and fuel economy. These new streamlined trucks are designed to replace an aging and potentially dangerous national American fleet of repurposed trucks, many of which are believed to be over fifteen years old according to industry data.

"These new trucks being built for The Grilled Cheese Truck are more streamlined and run on brand new American-made GMC chassis that offer a lower carbon footprint with higher fuel economy and flex fuel alternatives," stated Mr. Lee. "In addition, this platform is safer with features such as ABS brakes, airbags, greater visibility and belted seating for four providing unprecedented safety for food truck employees."

Mr. Parkinson noted, "These trucks are far more reliable and include the longest warranty in the industry of 5 years/50,000 miles. Moreover, these vehicles can be serviced by more than 1,800 authorized GMC service centers across the country."
