The Melting Pot to Appear on New A&E Original Real Life Series "Be the Boss" on Dec. 9

Fondue Franchise Offers two Employees the Chance to go from Average Joe to CEO

TAMPA, Fla. November 12, 2012 - (BUSINESS WIRE) -The Melting Pot Restaurants, Inc., the world’s premier fondue restaurant franchise headquartered in Tampa, Fla., will be featured on the new A&E original real life series “Be the Boss” on Sunday, Dec. 9 at 10 p.m. ET/PT as the franchise company pits two employees against each other in the battle of a lifetime – giving each of them the chance to become the owner of his or her very own franchise – to, in success, become his or her own boss.

“Our participation in 'Be the Boss' is part of The Melting Pot’s comprehensive plan to introduce our guests to our completely revamped menu that will offer a new way to fondue beginning Feb. 1,” said Bob Johnston, CEO of Front Burner Brands, restaurant management company for The Melting Pot. “As we put two of our employees to the test for the chance to win a huge promotion, we evaluated which team member best communicates how our guests can customize their fondue dining experiences and who truly embodies our standard to provide the perfect night out for every guest.”

From the Emmy-award winning creators of “Undercover Boss,” “Be the Boss” faces off two lower-level employees from the ranks, giving them the chance at what they think is a big promotion. In each episode, the CEO summons two deserving candidates to the company headquarters and subsequently puts them through a series of challenges to test their mettle at being in a senior management role. Both employees battle to prove they should earn the promotion, but they’re in for the shock of their lives when they discover that an even greater opportunity is ultimately at stake – the keys to their very own franchise! With franchise fees often running into the hundreds of thousands and sometimes even exceeding one million dollars, “Be the Boss” offers one of the largest prizes in all of television… and the promotion goes to the runner-up!

During the show, The Melting Pot awards one team member with the job opportunity of a lifetime, a role as the company’s new director of team member communications, and the other team member will win his very own Melting Pot franchise. Competing team members are Jason Long, general manager of The Melting Pot of Warrington, Pa., and Terry Love, lead server at The Melting Pot of Louisville, Ky.

“Be the Boss” premieres Sunday, Dec. 2 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on A&E. The Melting Pot will appear on the second episode on Sunday, Dec. 9, at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
