About Us

We set out to be that perfect comforting friend who’s always peddling the perfect comfort food. We’re here to turn around a bad day or make a good day even better and yummier. 

There are seven styles to choose from for your grilled cheese, mac and cheese, or tater tots/potato wedges. Toppings range from birria and pulled pork to gochujang maple glazed bacon.


When Mission Picnic shuts down daily at 3 p.m., Mo, Francisco , and Akop take over with meal pickups and deliveries beginning at 4:00 p.m.

Food Philosophy

The idea that you could get grilled cheese AND mac and cheese in one place with fun and innovative flavor combinations was appealing to all that heard about it. Then we added the cheesy potatoes and some fun sides/apps. The name helped get a laugh out of people as well since it was 2020 and we obviously needed to have total meltdowns. 

We call the mixture our “Four horsemen of the Cheese-ocalypse”  because you know, if you’re going to have a Total Meltdown, you need something apocalyptic. We picked Provolone for the melty/stretchy factor. Medium cheddar because of the body, color, and familiar flavors it brings, parmesan for umami and savory factors, and Mimolette for the nutty flavors and beautify flavors.

Think of Total Meltdown as sweatpants for the soul.
