About Hansel 'n Griddle

Founded in 1999 and franchising since 2014, Hansel ‘n Griddle is a fast-casual restaurant franchise known for its more than 70 freshly cooked-to-order breakfast, lunch and dinner menu items that are served all day. Options include all-day breakfast, made-from-scratch burgers, paninis, wraps, buffalo wings, crisps (Hansel’s version of a quesadilla), freshly chopped salads and homemade soups, including an award-winning chili. Today, there are five restaurants open and operating throughout New Jersey.

Company History

After graduating from Rutgers in 2004 with a degree in economics, Nick Komandis spent approximately six months working at Hansel ‘n Griddle for free. His intention was to learn the business and eventually purchase the restaurant from its original owners, which he did in March 2005 with some financial backing from his parents. The first few years of his ownership consisted of 7-day work weeks between a short staff of six: Komandis, his mother, his chef and a rotation of three friends. Komandis would work double shifts from the moment it opened at 10 a.m. until it closed at 11 p.m., delivering food in the morning and afternoon and working the cash register at night. His mother would work the register during the day for free. Delfino, a chef who still works at Hansel ‘n Griddle to this day, would work from opening until closing every day of the week. The delivery driver during the night shift was whichever of Komandis’ three friends who wasn’t busy with class. The persistence and hard work has paid off. Today, there are five Hansel ‘n Griddle locations throughout various parts of New Jersey and its expansive menu has grown to include more than 70 freshly cooked-to-order breakfast, lunch and dinner items that are served all day.
