August 23, 2016 // Franchising.com // TAMPA, Fla. – The Melting Pot® Restaurants, Inc., the world’s premier fondue restaurant and a leading polished casual dining franchise, announced today the brand seeks to return to Gainesville, Florida. The Melting Pot has a long history in the Gainesville market, as one of the brand’s first franchised locations was developed in the area in the 1980s. Ideally, The Melting Pot would like for the restaurant to open on the popular Archer Road, but is not limited to that location.
“We are ready to find the right franchise partner to bring back The Melting Pot to the Gainesville community, offering our loyal patrons and new guests a unique, go-to hot spot once again,” said Dan Stone, chief business & people development officer at Front Burner. “It’s no secret that the residents of Gainesville have missed our unique fondue menu offerings as we get calls from local residents often asking when we’ll be returning. Now is the time, and we are beyond excited to announce we hope to satisfy the cravings of our dedicated customers soon.”
To catapult the brand’s return to the area, the concept will be hosting a complimentary informational franchise webinar on Thursday, Sept. 15 at 11 a.m. (EDT) to educate qualified candidates. To register for the upcoming webinar, please visit http://www.meltingpotfranchise.com/upcomingEvents.aspx.
