The future is looking brighter than ever for The Melting Pot, America’s favorite fondue restaurant franchise. Not only are we being recognized within the franchise industry as a leading franchise opportunity for entrepreneurs, but we are also rethinking the brand to evolve with customer demands.
Being Recognized Among Top Franchise Companies
We are proud to say we were recently ranked #7 on Entrepreneur’s Top 200 Food Franchises of 2019 for the Full-Service Restaurant category!

Rethinking Fondue Franchises to Benefit Franchisees & Customers
Since 1975, The Melting Pot has been the destination for people who want amazing, customizable fondue and a fun dining setting. However, times are changing and many potential customers are on tight schedules. Sitting down for the quintessential fondue experience is sometimes not cohesive with short time tables.
To evolve our brand, give better opportunities to our franchisees, and create an even more delicious menu for customers, The Melting Pot is adding cheese and chocolate stations to all our franchise locations. At these stations, tenders will prepare cheese and chocolate fondue, which can be brought to a diner’s table readily once they sit down. Of course, at their own table, diners can customize the cheese and chocolate as they prefer, keeping The Melting Pot feeling alive and well.
We are also pleased to announce that our work with both Cacao-Trace® and Kindred Creamery® continue to be encouraging. Cacao-Trace® provides our franchise’s chocolate, and the company is heralded as one of the few in the cocoa industry that provides livable wages to its cocoa farmers. Kindred Creamery® is the go-to name for the succulent Wisconsin cheese that we use in our cheese fondues. The company’s famous Cows First program encourages and enables farmers to give their cows a friendly, family-like living space that the animals love. After all, happy cows really do produce tastier milk, which in turn makes for the best cheese for fondue.
