We are Melt

From the Owner: I have lived in Salem my whole life and enjoy the history, along with all the quaint shops and restaurants. I worked at a restuarant for years in Salem and love everything about this town! I was so excited when Melt opened and have been a loyal patron ever since. The quality of the flavors she came up with and the gourmet taste of all her ice cream made me envious. I’ve had a passion for cooking and baking for as long as I can remember, but I was scared to leave an 18 year career as a scientist. After 6 months in a new position, I realized how unhappy I was. It was as if it was some kind of perfect coincidence I learned that Melt was for sale. My husband and I jumped at the opportunity. It was like a dream come true to be able to take over Melt, and to be able to utilize my creativity and passion for creating yummy food.

From the Founder: It all started in 2009. While on vacation in Cape May, New Jersey I happened upon a small ice cream shop. The owners, a young couple, had just opened and had the most interesting ice cream flavors I had experienced - Lemon Basil Mint, Blueberry Basil, Maple Bacon (before bacon was a mainstay ingredient in everything!), Cucumber Sorbet, Spicy Chocolate. I went every day.

The owners used local, organic (where possible) ingredients and decided to set up shop and see how the business adventure goes. Their philosophy and mindset for the ice cream and business intrigued me.

Within the next year I bought my first ice cream maker and started experimenting at home. I brought samples to work events, gatherings with friends, and made my family try a bunch of flavors.

In 2014, after working a Corporate job for almost a decade, I quit and didn’t know what was next. I decided to jump full time into my ice cream hobby and here we are!
