The first non-American franchise of The Melting Pot chain is scheduled to open on the southside of Edmonton in late January. In Gateway Village, near where Cora's and Outback Steakhouse is, off Calgary Trail and 23 Ave.
I have to say I have never been to one, but kind of clump it with other large popular American chains like the Cheesecake Factory, PF Changs and Bahama Breeze which seem to linger at the edges of suburban shopping centres. Large stylish restaurants with huge menus full of decent food in enormous servings. No doubt will tickle the fancy of chain crazy Edmontonians. Maybe it will finally be able to put the "romantic" Creperie out of its misery as well.
