In addition, Melt Shop’s Newtown restaurant will be hosting a series of giveaways throughout its celebratory weekend. Full giveaway details include:
Owned by franchisee, Drew Smith, the Newtown restaurant marks his second Melt Shop location in Pennsylvania, and third restaurant with the brand. In addition to Newtown, Smith took ownership of his first Melt Shop location last year inside King of Prussia Mall. He is also owner of Melt Shop’s restaurant in Christiana, Delaware and has plans to develop 18 additional Melt Shop restaurants in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.
“I’m so excited to expand Melt Shop’s footprint in Pennsylvania and offer the brand’s superior food and guest experience to more communities throughout my home state,” says Smith. “Each item on Melt Shop’s menu has been hand-crafted with care and intention, and evokes the feeling of fond memories and joy. It’s this distinctive quality that allows our food to be instantly recognizable and loved by guests of all ages.”
Founded in 2011 in New York City, Melt Shop’s menu is full of craveable melts, house made chicken tenders, tots, salads, shakes and more, including its popular Fried Chicken Melt topped with pepper jack cheese, red cabbage slaw and Melt Sauce on country white bread.
Additionally, available now through September 23, Melt Shop’s Summer Favorites include a lineup of three melts intended to give guests all the summer vibes and each packed with its own unique flavors and fresh ingredients to evoke nostalgic memories.
