The previously announced eighth MELT location will open in Dayton this summer at The Mall at Fairfield Commons in Beavercreek, Ohio, just east of Dayton off I-675. The all-new location will feature approximately 5,000 square feet of a relaxing yet energetic environment, cold beer and grilled cheese awesomeness.
What is MELT?
Simply put, Melt Bar & Grilled was born from Cleveland musician and chef Matt Fish’s love of two things: great craft beer and the humble grilled cheese sandwich. Where most people saw a quick meal comprised of two common kitchen staples, Matt envisioned much more… “comfort food, all dressed up,” as he put it. The impetus for Melt’s selection of gourmet grilled cheese was to bring classic American dishes to the table in an unpretentious, truly unique and fun way.
What had been the best-kept secret in Cleveland was soon thrust into the national spotlight, as Melt caught the attention of hot television series Man vs. Food and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, both of whom filmed what would be among their most-watched episodes at the flourishing Lakewood haunt… and as the buzz grew, so did demand — and quickly. Locals were lined up out the door. Out-of-towners were adjusting their travel routes just to see what all the fuss was about. Check out the website which features video’s for their sandwiches, like the one below.
The Dayton Melt opening is planned for Monday, June 12th, and a staff hiring fair will be on-site at the new location on Monday, May 8th through Saturday, May 12th. They will be looking for Hosts, Servers, Bartenders, Line Cooks and Dishwashers to play a big part in our new location opening. Interested? Complete an online application prior to the hiring fair.
