Why Melting Pot

Innovative Fondue Restaurant Franchise Opportunities

Are you someone who values hard work, exceptional customer service, and unique experiences? The Melting Pot offers guests a welcoming atmosphere of community and a mouthwatering menu of fondue, salads, wine, and more—and we’re seeking passionate entrepreneurs and restaurateurs for our franchise opportunities. Our franchisees enjoy creating an inviting space for guests to make moments into memories and celebrate all of life’s occasions gathered with friends and family around a fondue pot. Thanks to the communal nature of a fondue dining experience, the Melting Pot offers a full-service restaurant unlike anything else out there.

An Enticing Investment Opportunity Full of Potential

Our Restaurant Support Center team members provide franchisees with the training, resources, and guidance they will need at every step. At Melting Pot, we pride ourselves on our unmatched support for franchisees. Serving others before serving ourselves is our leadership philosophy, after all. Our first location opened in 1975 and we’ve been franchising for more than 30 years. All of that experience results in a 95% renewal rate among our franchisees. Topped off with the simplicity of guests doing the majority of the cooking right at their table, low waste, and attractive food costs, Melting Pot offers several tasty operational advantages over the competition. Franchise Grade conducts an analysis of over 2,000 franchise systems against multiple criteria and Melting Pot's Franchise Investment Profile was recently designated with an overall 'A' letter grade.
