Mini Melt to be Part of the New Case Western Reserve University Student Center

Posted By on Wed, Apr 30, 2014 at 6:58 PM


When it's completed in late summer, the $50 million Tinkham Veale University Center on the campus of Case Western Reserve University will feature a little taste of a big Cleveland landmark. Along with the usual student-focused amenities like coffee shops and cafes, the center will boast a Melt University.

"Bon Appétit approached us two years ago looking to add a little local flavor," explains Melt Bar & Grilled founder Matt Fish, referring to the well regarded food-service management company.

The 82,000 square-foot center, which is located southeast of the Peter B. Lewis Building, is slated to open in time for student orientation day in August. And when it does, those new students can get a taste of a true Cleveland original.

"It will be a scaled-down version of what we do — a handful of our signature sandwiches, soups and salads," says Fish, about this, his first establishment on a college campus.

The Melt University location at CWRU 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.
