Our Story

“Shorey’s Grilled Cheese & Ice Cream”, all began with a vision from a mother of 6, named Sharon Shorey. Driving to work every day from Franklin to Newbury, Sharon would pass by a small vacant building, that use to be formally known as “Arianna’s”.

Always having a desire to start a business with her daughter Laura, Sharon sparked the idea to give Franklin a comfort food oasis, serving grilled cheese & ice cream!

After proposing the plan to her husband Dave Shorey, along with her daughter Laura and her husband Anthony, the family went all in on bringing that vision to life, and started their renovations.
