If I begin the Discovery Process (application process), will my market of interest be reserved or guaranteed for me?
No, we do not hold, reserve, or guarantee a market for a candidate. Please note, once your application is approved, The Melting Pot Restaurants, Inc. will communicate your market of interest to the franchise community. The franchise community has two weeks to express an interest in the market. If there is internal interest, your application may be placed on hold. If there is no internal interest during the two weeks, you can continue the Discovery Process. Once a candidate has successfully completed the Discovery Process, he or she may be invited to join us in Tampa, Fla., for a Decision Day visit. During the Decision Day visit, the candidate(s) will meet with the Executive Leadership Team and the principals of The Melting Pot Restaurants, Inc. If we mutually agree to proceed at the conclusion of the Decision Day visit, we will sign and execute franchise documents. At that time, your market of interest would be secured and we would immediately begin working together to build your Melting Pot restaurant(s). Decision Day visits are held once a month and the dates can be found on our website under the Getting Started section.
