If you've dreamed of owning a fondue restaurant, spending day after day surrounded by pots of bubbling chocolate and cheese, your moment has arrived.
The Melting Pot (located at 1820 St. Charles Ave.) is looking for a new owner effective immediately, meaning that all 4,700 square feet of the Lower Garden District fondue kingdom could be yours for $350,000.
The company has 135 restaurants across the U.S., Mexico, and Canada. The New Orleans' outpost of the franchise opened in December 2005, and is the only fondue-focused restaurant in the city.
"The Melting Pot’s well-established business model and simple operations combined with little-to-no direct competition within the fondue segment are just a few reasons why our concept is an attractive investment opportunity,” said Dan Stone, vice president of franchise development.
Those interested in learning more about the opportunity are invited to attend a webinar hosted by The Melting Pot on July 17.
