A new eatery is set to open in Aberdeen – with a menu consisting entirely of grilled cheese sandwiches.

Mechelle Clark, of Stonehaven, was made redundant from jobs in the oil industry twice in 15 months and she said that spurred her on to open Aberdeen’s first grilled cheese takeaway.

The sandwich shop on Holburn Street, which is to be called Melt, will specialise in grilled cheese sandwiches with fillings ranging from Nutella to macaroni.

The 33-year-old recalled the moment she thought of the idea – when her husband brought home toastie bags for them to use.

She said: “I remember thinking that I wanted to do something like this on a bigger scale.”

Mechelle, who previously worked for Offshore Marine Services and Esk Offshore, hopes to open the shop within the next two months.

She added: “I’m looking forward to getting the keys in the next couple of days.

“I’m hoping to open in March which would be great.

“Nowhere in Scotland really has anything like this.

“The reaction I have had has been very positive.

“I can’t wait to open and I will be taking on two part-time members of staff to help me.”
