“I think the risk turns into reward 100%, it’s been the most rewarding experience I’ve ever had. I’ve had so much fun and learned a lot about myself and what I want to do in the future.”
Anna Thompson is the owner of Say Cheese Grilled Cheese: a gourment grilled cheese food trailer. She built the trailer with her dad, Tyler Thompson, and opened for business on July 4th, 2018, in Sawyer, Michigan. Since then, Anna has brought Say Cheese back to the South Suburbs and opens on weekends for a variety of events. Looking forward, her plans include streamlining the sandwich making process and pairing with a non-profit focused on ending childhood hunger. When she isn’t running Say Cheese, Anna spends her time playing soccer, participating in DECA (a school-based business competiton), and cooking with friends. After High School, Anna hopes to major in business administration/ management and/or entrepreneurship. She hopes to one day open a social enterprise that focuses on girl’s education in underserved communities.
