'Melt Bar & Grilled' to open fifth Cleveland location at Case Western Reserve University

First 'Melt' on college campus

CLEVELAND - Cleveland's famous grilled cheese is going back to school.

Melt Bar & Grilled is about to open its fifth Cleveland location at Case Western Reserve University .

Matt Fish, Melt's owner, is opening Melt University at the new Tinkham Veale University Center on CWRU's campus beginning this August. Construction of the first on-campus location has already begun.

“We are focusing on quick service for both lunch and dinner without losing the Melt experience,” said Fish. 

The menu will feature eight to 10 signature Melt gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches with an exclusive Case Western Reserve-themed sandwich available only at the new Melt University location.

Melt University will be operated in partnership with Bon Appétit Management Co., the university’s food service provider since 2004. 

“We at Bon Appétit are thrilled to be working with Matt Fish and Melt,” said Jim O’Brien, Bon Appétit’s resident district manager at Case Western Reserve. “It’s a local favorite, it’s fresh, and now it’s a part of the university’s dynamic campus dining scene.”

Melt University will operate from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and will be open to the public.
