Melted Sandwich pioneer Melt Shop has announced the opening of two new outlets in the Northeast, one is in Newark, Delaware and the other in New Jersey at Rockaway Townsquare.
The Newark restaurant is the first of 21 Melt Shop locations that existing franchisee Drew Smith plans to develop throughout Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. In addition to Melt Shop in King of Prussia, Smith owns and operates 23 Five Guys locations throughout greater Philadelphia.
Spencer Rubin, Founder and CEO of Melt Shop, said “The opening of our first franchised restaurant is a significant milestone for our brand as we remain on track to nearly double in size by the end of the year. As we accelerate this momentum moving into 2019, we’re grateful to have a knowledgeable and experienced partner like Drew, who shares our dedication to operational excellence. We believe our brand and product will resonate with the Newark community and look forward to our continued growth throughout the state and beyond.”
