3 Days to Open: Melt Mobile

When Bobby Flay arrived at Diana and Darlene’s Melt Mobile food truck in Stamford, Conn., he wasn’t sure if this venture would ever take to the road — especially since the team had just three days until the opening. These two best friends quit their jobs to pursue this dream, but after mortgaging their homes, they were left with almost no money to open their business with. Before Bobby could consider the task complete, he needed to help the team fix these six crucial issues: organization, food knowledge, wait time, expediting, food quality and packaging.

Bobby left his mission saying that he felt Melt Mobile was “a well-oiled machine.” Is it still running that way? Has Darlene and Diana’s friendship withstood all the stress of opening a business? We checked in with Melt Mobile to see how things are going a few months after their visit from Bobby. Click play on the video below for a 3 Days to Open update.

    I agree with you 100% I am appalled at all these cooking show where no one is wearing hair nets!
    It is unsanitary!

      Most chefs in most restaurants do not wear hairnets. They also use their hands without gloves unless they have an injury. For many fine cooking techniques, there is simply no other choice.

    Think the show idea is interesting … Found the melt mobile show too much on the problem stress and not enough on the solution/happy. Just a suggestion to rebalance.

    Whoa. A LOT of comments here regarding the FN blog/bloggers…isn't this just supposed to be a forum to dish about the shows? Even saw someone inquiring about a job, in addition to some technical comments regarding the web page. Really? Hackers are one thing, but that doesn't seem to be what's going on here. Come on people! Let's just discuss the shows! :)
