Our Process

Interested in owning a Melting Pot franchise?

These are the steps to take and what you can expect:

Step 1

Unit Level Economics and Application:

Through contact with our Franchise Development Team, we will review the Melting Pot through the brand’s strengths and numbers in a high-level one on one. Our goal here is to confirm the Melting Pot is the right fit for you and your family. Once you are ready to proceed, an application will be made ready for you to complete and submit to our committee for review.

Step 2

FDD and Review:

Once your application has been approved, the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) will be provided along with an overview video to help you better understand its contents. The FDD is a valuable tool for any franchise opportunity to express where the brand has been, updated performance figures, and the details of where the brand is leading our franchisees. Additionally, we will arrange a one-on-one meeting to address any questions you may have and ensure you have a thorough understanding of the document.

Step 3

Territory Mapping and Validation:

We will review and present you with a sizeable territory using our AI-driven market planning. This designated territory will be where The Melting Pot, in partnership with Newmark Real Estate, will search for a suitable location once we sign a franchise agreement. The franchisee contact list will be provided for you to reach out and learn from our incredible franchisees why they belong to the community and learn how their operations are executed with the Perfect Night Out in mind.

Step 4

Confirmation Day:

With strong communication and thorough participation throughout the process, we will then confirm your place at one of our limited Discovery Days in Tampa, Florida. This process is designed to not only provide you with high level insight and understanding of the Melting Pot, but also to ensure the candidates we are working with are the right fit for our franchisee community.

Step 5

Management Plan:

This valuable exercise is where you and your team will create a gameplan for how you will take on the responsibilities of your location, express the understanding of your desired market, and a personal profile for our leadership team to review before your designated Discovery Day.

Step 6

Franchise Agreement:

This document will be the final step before your Discovery Day. With this document in hand, you will have the ability to review and be ready to take on the next chapter of entrepreneurial adventure for you and your family. We encourage your participation at your Discovery Day if you feel we are a match for your ambitions.

Step 7

Discovery Day:

A full day of hospitality and learning will be provided for your team here in Tampa, FL at our Restaurant Support Center. You’ll have the opportunity to start your day with a guided tour, a meet and greet with our full leadership team, presentations from department directors, and the time to meet the 50+ all-stars that support our brand. If both parties determine a relationship will be beneficial, we will sign the proper documents and get you started on your fondue journey!
