Brand Summary

Over four decades, The Melting Pot has become synonymous with a place for connection, celebration and experience, all centered around high-quality fondue. With the help of passionate, dedicated franchisees, the concept has grown to nearly 100 locations in North America, and it continues to draw guests in. The Melting Pot stands out within the so-called polished casual space. The restaurant is not casual dining, but it is not quite fine dining, either. As guests gather around the fondue pot and become active participants in their meals, they are able to make memories like none other.
