The W.G. Grinders style.
The engaging, comfortable style of a W.G. Grinders restaurant is immediately apparent. The floors are distinctive black and white alternating tile squares, and the glass cases exhibit fresh breads, meats, and salads to give the customer the initial feeling of being in a delicatessen. Curved glass block walls separate areas and add to the restaurants' look, while soft neon lights, an open ceiling, and full length windows accent the warm, comfortable, but casual atmosphere.

Off premise sales, including take-out, catering, delivery and box lunch programs account for more than 50% of our average unitÂ’s revenue. Party sandwiches can be prepared on 3 foot rolls. Vegetable and cheese platters, deli trays, and other specialty orders provide a way to generate add-on sales and build recognition of the W.G. Grinders' name. FAX menus, corporate meeting menus, and a kid's menu also effectively generate take out sales.
