How long does this process of becoming a Melting Pot franchise owner take?
Typically, the Discovery Process (approval process) takes 60 – 120 days to complete. Once awarded a franchise, you have up to 18 months to develop your restaurant and open your doors for business. Therefore, the time frame from starting your application to opening your doors for business can be expected to take 14 months or longer. Bear in mind, there are several factors that could alter this timeframe, including delays in site selection, obtaining a liquor license and permitting.
