Right now you have the opportunity to be part of a
proven, successful, rapidly-growing Franchise System!

Does your city really need another steak house? Another Italian restaurant? Another pizza place?

Think about what would happen if you gave diners in your market the opportunity to “dip into something different.”

For the past 34 years, The Melting Pot Restaurant has succeeded in finding the right strategic partners to help us become the North America’s leading fondue franchise concept. With over 140 locations open in the States and numerous prime markets still available, the time has never been better to Dip into something different! Melting Pot franchises have already been sold in Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver!

If the thought of having a full service restaurant without an executive chef, fryers, ovens and grills appeals to you, The Melting Pot is for you! We are an industry leader in providing turn-key franchise operational training and on-going marketing support through our Franchise Support Center. We'll even help secure your financing!
With an exciting concept, a proven method of franchising, a mission to grow our brand, ever-increasing market share and a commitment to our franchisee’s success, the timing is right for you to see what a Melting Pot Franchise has to offer your future.

Franchisees are supported and trained in every area you can imagine -- from the kitchen to dining room to bar to ordering equipment to managing and everything in between. Training is so important to us that it is one of the original Guiding Principles upon which the concept was founded. The Melting Pot’s Franchise Support Center is so dedicated to ensuring franchise success that they have a team of trainers visit new units and assist franchisees in opening their businesses. But the training doesn’t stop once the doors to your franchise open. We provide licensees and their staff with consistent, on-going training tips and support each and every day, so you can provide the best experience for the guest.
