Grumpy’s Sandwiches

137 E High St., Pottstown, PA

www.grumpyssandwiches.com

Grumpy’s was named after our oldest son told the rest of our five children, to name the restaurant after dad. And Grumpy it was! Chef Gene was unemployed for 2 years. Grumpy’s opened on 6/25/10 at the local indoor Farmer’s Market located on High St in Pottstown. We began building what we hoped would become one of the best sandwich places in the area. Within two years at the market, a new owner came, leases changed and we moved to a new location along the 100 block of High Street. Grumpy is commitment to being local and staying within his community was important. The rent was more, the space was bigger and the over-all location was a plus. On a song and a prayer, exactly two years after opening, we re-opened at 137 E High St.

Staying local and engaging in the community has helped our five children understand the importance of helping your own. For the last five years the local high school participated in the Chopped Challenge with Grumpy. The winner has their sandwich on the menu for a year, and every one sold, gets $2 back to the culinary arts program. More than $800 has been given.

Born in the tradition of service excellence, Groupe Rim originated on the Cote d’Azur in 1982. Founder and Owner, Master Rene Kobeitri, introduced the concept of around-the-clock service in his markets in Nice, France. Very soon, he expanded and opened shops in Cagnes-sur-Mer and then in Cannes.

By the late 1980’s, Rene was the premier caterer to the finest Cote d’Azur hotel establishments. Around this time, he opened his first restaurant, La Ferme.

In 2006, Rene once again expanded Groupe Rim and ventured to the United States. Settling in South Philadelphia’s famous Italian Market. He opened the RIM Cafe’, bringing with him the essence of the French Riviera and the Italian cafe tradition. At this cozy and eclectic nightspot, guests are made to feel welcome by Rene, who likens himself to a more friendly French Godfather. Each of Rene’s drinks becomes a show, as you watch him personally make your Volcano Hot Chocolate. A year after his arrival, Rene was recognized by Philadelphia Magazine for making the city’s best hot chocolate in their June 2007 “Best of Philly” issue. Rene and his famous Volcano Hot Chocolate was also featured on the Food Network’s show “Sugar High” in 2011. Master Rene has regularly been awarded Best Coffee and Tea House, as well as Best Chocolate in Philly’s Hot List and Philly Happening. In Spring 2016, Master Rene was invited to Be a Guest Chef at Disney’s Food and Wine Festival in California.

Master Rene continuously hones his master barista skills, techniques, and artistry. He is excited to present Philadelphia with the first Victoria Arduino BLACK EAGLE VA388 espresso machine. Master Rene was invited by the Italian Victoria Arduino Company to accompany them at the 2016 New York City Coffee Festival.

In 2014, the adventure continues with the opening of Cafe Crema, the King of Cannoli, in the Italian Market featuring the first hot chocolate bar and Sicilian cannoli. As he says, “If you don’t MAKE IT HAPPEN, someone else will!
