“Our guests are looking for localized, customized and fun experiences and our restaurants deliver just that. Our redesigned locations will offer a slightly different look and menu offering, but each will create an eclectic environment for our guests that offers the traditional Melting Pot interactive experience along with a variety of casual dining opportunities,” Lester said. “This is an exciting time in the history of the brand when we have recreated ourselves and we look forward to sharing it with our guests in communities across the country as we continue to expand.”
In July, The Melting Pot made a culinary and experiential change when it announced that locations nationwide would start offering tabletop cast-iron grilling. Guests could sear entrée items right at the table. “Our new grill cooking style will provide guests another way to enjoy our interactive dining experience, while still offering the traditional cooking styles they know and love,” Lester said at the time.
Founded in 1975, The Melting Pot has more than 115 restaurants in 34 U.S. states, Canada, Mexico, and The Middle East. Additionally, there are more than 17 international locations in development.The chain is an affiliate of Front Burner, a restaurant management company headquartered in Tampa, Florida.
