Mission and Inspiration
Inspired by my mother, Angela Christofellis, the Angie's mission of making luxury foods affordable to everyone continues with our newest restaurant business, Angie's Prime Grill. When we launched Angie's Lobster in 2021, we realized just how much these "luxury" foods mean to hard-working Americans. Making something that was once only enjoyed on special occasions, into something that's now a part of their weekly routine!
We are using USDA Prime Steak, Antibiotic and Hormone Free Chicken and Wild-Caught Mexican Colossal Shrimp, grilled-to-order and served in savory warm bowls, grilled burritos and fresh-cut salads! We've developed our menu as though we are a high-end restaurant, using premium and organic ingredients like heirloom tomatoes, Persian cucumbers, organic romaine and house-made sauces made with premium extra virgin olive oil, without any preservatives or additives and packed with bold flavors. What's the difference between Angie's Prime Grill and a Prime Steakhouse? We are pricing our meals competitive with the typical fast food meal, along with the speed and convenience of a drive-thru!
My mother, Angie, moved with her family from Greece to Boston at a young age. She came from a family of fearless and hard-working immigrants who would give you the shirt off their back. Angie grew up with that same grit and determination to make a better life for her kids. She was everything to my sister and me. A true force of nature. She was a single mom who worked in restaurants to support us and always made sure we had what we needed, and then some. We always enjoyed great, home cooked meals. Going out to eat was always a treat and she never held back. Looking back now, I honestly don't know how she did it and can only imagine the sacrifice involved. She taught us to work hard and help others when they need help.
Angie passed away from pancreatic cancer in March 2020. Up until her final day, she was pushing herself to get out of bed and take care of her kids and grandkids.
This is what drives us to allow hard-working people, just like Angie, and their families, to be able to enjoy gourmet meals, made with prime meats, premium and organic ingredients and packed with flavor, for the same price and convenience of a drive-thru fast food meal! We are doing this for all the Angies of the world.
How We Do It
After years of developing restaurant models designed to off-set high food costs, we have cracked the code! With Angie's Lobster we had to create the ultimate streamlined operation built on end-to-end efficiencies in order to compensate for the high price of Maine lobster. Once we saw our operation in action, we knew that was just the start of what we could accomplish.
Now, with Angie's Prime Grill, we are following our game-changing model by keeping our menu focused, operation tight and optimizing every step of the process, from restaurant floorplan and equipment layout to food preparation, to the drive-thru order, payment and pick-up process! With our menu, we are using a limited number of premium and organic ingredients, keeping it focused and efficient. We have 3 prime cuts of meat, 6 flavor styles, all which share some ingredients, and 3 different ways to enjoy each flavor. That's 54 menu items made from a limited, but premium ingredient list!
