A Knoxville chain restaurant known for its appearance on ABC’s Shark Tank is closing its doors after three years of operation.
Tom+Chee, a sandwich and soup restaurant based out of Cincinnati, on Cedar Bluff Road announced Thursday on their Facebook page they would be closing permanently and thanked the community for their support.
After appearing on the business investment drama, “Shark Tank”, Tom+Chee appeared on ABC’s “The Chew” and Travel Channel’s “Man vs Food Nation”. Their grilled cheese donut was named one of America’s best new sandwiches by the Today Show. The 2013 Brand Innovators Made in America Summit named Tom+Chee one of “25 Brands to Watch.”
Tom+Chee has 19 locations in 14 states nationwide. There is one other store in Tennessee located in Nashville.
