Melt Shop announced it will be opening its third restaurant in the Greater Philadelphia area. The newest Melt Shop will open on November 2 in Downingtown, Pennsylvania, at Brandywine Square located at Quarry Road & U.S. 30, Space P2-1. Melt Shop in Downingtown will celebrate its grand opening by giving away free grilled cheese for a year to the first guest in line on opening day.

Following a successful opening in Newtown, PA in June, Melt Shop’s Downingtown restaurant is also owned and operated by local multi-unit franchisee, Drew Smith of Rockham Melt, LLC. In addition to Melt Shop restaurants, Smith and his team operate 28 Five Guys locations across the greater Philadelphia area. The multi-unit operator has plans to develop 17 additional Melt Shop restaurants across Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware over the next few years.

“We’re excited to continue Melt Shop’s expansion in my home state of Pennsylvania. We received tremendous feedback following our opening in Newtown earlier this year and wanted to give our guests in Downingtown an opportunity to experience food that elicits moments of joy with family and friends,” says Smith. “Our food is delicious and is made from the highest quality ingredients and we look forward to serving guests from Downingtown and the surrounding areas.”
