The Grilled Cheese Truck and Orange County Rescue Mission Project to Help Vets Profiled in Recent LA Times Story

Timely Example of For-Profit and Non-Profit Working Together for Veterans' Benefit

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwired - October 28, 2015) - The Grilled Cheese Truck, Inc. (OTCQB: GRLD), an emerging growth public company capitalizing on opportunities within the burgeoning gourmet food truck industry, today announced that its collaboration with the Orange County Rescue Mission in California to help bring jobs to veterans was featured this past weekend in The Los Angeles Times.

The story, written by Kathleen Luppi, (http://www.latimes.com/socal/weekend/tn-wknd-et-1025-grilled-cheese-truck-20151025-story.html) focusses on the successful project that the two entities have carried out to help veterans learn food service skills that can enable them to find jobs and potentially become small business owners. Robbie Lee, Chairman of the Grilled Cheese Truck, said: "Our concept is very simple, we want to work with charitable organizations, such as the Orange County Rescue Mission, in helping vets by offering them an ability to both find jobs -- as well as own their own small businesses as franchisees -- through the growth of our Grilled Cheese Trucks and other branded gourmet-food trucks. It is our priority to grow our company by encouraging veterans to become significant partners with us in whatever manner is most appropriate for the individual -- whether as a worker, franchise owner-operator, or even investor in the company. This effort with the Orange County Mission is the first in what we hope will be other programs of a similar nature as we roll out this concept nationwide."

The Grilled Cheese Truck is rapidly expanding its presence in the gourmet food truck industry with acquisitions recently announced in Philadelphia and California. "This is a highly fragmented business in which we see tremendous opportunities to acquire additional restaurants and trucks," said Lee. "This in turn affords us the opportunity to help more and more veterans throughout the country. If we can replicate the program that we have with the Orange County Mission nationwide, it can provide tremendous opportunities to our veterans. We are one of the few companies today that truly believes in giving back to others."
