About Melting Pot

The Premier Fondue Restaurant Franchise

At Melting Pot, we like to think of ourselves as more than just a restaurant, because we provide more than just an average dining experience. For over 45 years, Melting Pot has been famous for being a casual, polished fondue concept that offers experiential dining. Our guests keep coming back to us for our unique menu options, relaxing atmosphere, and stellar customer service. We are the perfect choice for the Perfect Night Out®, from birthdays to anniversaries to date nights.

Fondue brings people together over dipping delicious bite-sized foods into shared pots of melted cheeses, chocolate, and more. Our restaurants have a reputation for providing outstanding service and we are looking for passionate, like-minded entrepreneurs and business professionals to bring this unique dining experience into new communities across the country.

A Restaurant Franchise Like No Other

At Melting Pot, our goal is to create lifetime guests who come to our restaurant to celebrate all of their occasions. We do so by offering the Perfect Night Out to every guest that walks through our doors. When seeking new owners, we look for prospective franchisees who share our commitment to providing exceptional service and food in an inviting setting. We have been supporting and guiding our franchisees to success for over 45 years with our proven operations and resources.

To ensure success, we offer our restaurant franchise owners support with:

  • Real estate acquisition
  • Building design and construction
  • National and local marketing
  • Training and operations

Offering ongoing support and initial franchise training for all our new owners, owning a Melting Pot location gives you the freedom of being your own boss with the safety net of a supportive, experienced team of professionals who always have your back. If you have a strong work ethic, a commitment to customer service, and want to create the Perfect Night Out for guests, you may be exactly who we are looking for. Together, we can create something truly special.

Always Evolving to Impress Our Guests

Melting Pot is proud to introduce the next innovation in our impressive history. The evolution of our legacy brand continues. Since 2018, we have been reintroducing our guests to our fondue restaurant with a fresh new concept that includes strategically-designed dining areas with distinct atmospheres. Since our guests join us for a variety of occasions, we can now offer more versatility and a variety of dining experiences to fit exactly what they are in the mood for. We’ve also added unique new menu options that both excite our longtime guests and increase revenue during lunch and brunch as well as at the bar.
