Hot off the Halifax Press

April is National Grill Cheese Month and Halifax is getting a grilled cheese food truck

Jill Johnsrude and Connor Dubreuil aren’t afraid to get a little cheesy. The pair is gearing up to launch Halifax Press—a lime green, newspaper-themed food truck that’ll serve up nothing but variations of grilled cheese sandwiches— in a few weeks time.

“It's our first entrepreneurial adventure and we thought it was the best way to share what we love about the food service industry, and my passion for cooking” says Johnsrude, who you might recognize from Morris East; Dubreuil’s a longtime employee at Salvatore’s. “We’ve been saying, if you take two pizzas and put them on top of each other, you basically get a grilled cheese.”

Halifax Press will have an ever-changing and seasonally-inspired menu of cast iron pressed signature sammies as well as the option to build your own “if you’re just a bacon and cheese kind of gal,” says Johnsrude. Using all local suppliers, like Fox Hill and That Dutchman’s cheeses, these melty meals on wheels (all named with clever newspaper puns and famous headlines) will be sold mainly from locations in the north and west ends of town.

The newest addition to Halifax’s food truck fleet hopes to make its first appearance Easter weekend (that’s April 18), but you find the latest via @HalifaxPressGC and
