San Francisco California-based The Melt is a fast-casual restaurant that, using technology, delivers custom grilled cheese sandwiches that stay hot, and remain melted on the inside and crunchy on the outside. Their tagline reads “Grilled Cheese Happiness™” and they aim to meet this goal by using a streamlined online ordering system (an app of course) and delivering these all-natural, creative sandwiches in an eco-friendly way. Their Smart Box delivery system has received some well-deserved attention. The Smart Box keeps the grilled cheese combination sandwiches hot and crunchy for 30 minutes or more. This makes downtown delivery of tasty, hot and wholesome lunch food in San Francisco quick and reliable.
As part of their innovative sandwich delivery system, The Melt used a KangaBox Thermal Food Carrier EX6300-RA in orange to complement their smart box. The KangaBox thermal food carrier is ideal for keeping food hot or cold. The ultra-lightweight KangaBox fits on top of the Smart Box, making for a fast and easy delivery. Made from Expandable Polypropylene EPP, the KangaBox is 100% recyclable, so it is truly an eco-friendly solution to hot food transport and storage.
The Melt is currently operating 16 locations throughout California. Flip Video founder Jonathan Kaplan leads their management team and their board of directors includes such notables as Ron Johnson, former head of retail operations at Apple, and Michael Mina, a James Beard award winning chef and restaurateur.
