Two weeks ago, QR-code grilled cheese chain The Melt launched its first food truck, The Melt Bus, also known as “SF1.” The announcement came not long after celebrating its first anniversary on August 30, and the opening of a new location in Berkeley.
The company’s ambitious plan is to build a fleet of food trucks, 10 will roam the Bay Area by year end, and to have a total of 100 trucks rolling around the country, within five years.
The vehicles are former yellow school buses retrofitted onto a Ford E series truck, running on biodiesel fuel. The interior is stocked with the same kitchen equipment used in the restaurants. Customers with smartphones are able to scan their QR code orders, at the scanner under the pickup window.
The Melt Bus “SF1” parks at Ghirardelli Square, open daily from 10 am to 9 pm. No breakfast menu (other future truck locations might include breakfast options). Closed on Easter, July 4th, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day.
