A Fondue Love

for the ages
  • CELEBRATION

    Melting Pot has been celebrating love with communities for over four decades. Dates, engagements, anniversaries – we’ve shared so many special moments with neighbors all around the world. We’ve also been invited to countless birthday parties, graduation dinners, and so much more. When you’re as focused on nurturing relationships and bringing people together as we are, you tend to attract (and keep) devoted fans. The experiences that Melting Pot provides our guests go beyond your average night out, and we are so much more than just another restaurant. Our restaurant franchise is a unique concept that offers guests fondue, savory entrees, and indulgent desserts in different settings with different ways to celebrate. We create the Perfect Night Out and redefine the dining experience. Melting Pot is currently seeking driven, passionate entrepreneurs to help bring our fondue restaurant franchise into new communities throughout the United States. If you are seeking a sophisticated investment opportunity that is both personally rewarding and supportive of the local communities we serve, our franchise may be a great fit for you.

  • INNOVATION

    Melting Pot has been delivering rich, creamy cheeses and chocolates for over 45 years. We invented the Art of Fondue and have created unforgettable experiences for thousands of customers. Over 30 years ago, we began franchising so that we could introduce our brand to new audiences across the country. Being such a unique concept, we don’t have any natural competitors and currently outpace the casual dining restaurant category in both sales and traffic. We look forward to another 45+ years of providing dining experiences like none other – and we need your help to achieve this.

  • EVOLUTION

    Melting Pot is always looking ahead and staying on top of emerging trends in dining. We are excited to embrace a new open floor design layout that offers guests multiple dining area options to fit their occasion. By providing our guests with the option to dine how and when they like, we are driving up revenue and creating life-long customers who turn to our fondue franchise to celebrate many of life’s moments. When you join our fondue restaurant franchise, you will be joining a legacy brand with over four decades of history and experience. We are a lower-cost investment in the full table service category that offers a high level of engagement with our restaurant support employees.
