North America’s #1 Franchised Fondue Specialty Restaurant
Fondue is a fun and interactive dining experience – and for more than three decades, The Melting Pot has defined this restaurant niche across the American dining scene. Welcome to North America’s leading fondue chain – a dining concept and franchise that has very special attributes for your country.
The first Melting Pot opened in April of 1975 in Maitland – just outside of Orlando, Florida USA. Today, with more than 145 locations across 37 US states, The Melting Pot Restaurants Inc. is the premier fondue restaurant franchise in North America.
Now The Melting Pot is seeking Area Licensees to introduce this unique concept to selected countries around the world. At The Melting Pot, fondue truly becomes a memorable four-course dining experience where guests can dip into something different and discover all the ingredients for a unique dining experience including a relaxed atmosphere, private tables, private parties, attentive service, fine wines and signature fondue dinners.
Distinct benefits of this food franchise include low overheads and ease of operation: there are no ovens in the kitchen as the food is cooked by the customers at their tables.
Special benefits of The Melting Pot franchise is its high level of training – a 6 to 10 weeks programme in the US – and a detailed start-up and on-going support and marketing programmes.
The Melting Pot restaurants were built on ambition, resolve and passion, and aims to empower its licensees to use that same motivation to do whatever it takes to deliver the perfect night out for The Melting Pot guests in your country.
