ATLANTIC CITY — The Melting Pot location in the city closed its doors for good this week after almost 10 years in the resort.

The fondue restaurant at The Walk announced its closing on its website as of Monday, writing in a statement the closing is “due to financial reasons related to the ongoing economy shift in the market.”

“We appreciate the opportunity to have served the Atlantic City community for over 9 years at this location,” the statement said.

In 2010, The Press of Atlantic City reported the location, which opened in December 2007, was the chain’s top franchise of the 145 locations.

The statement this week added that the restaurant chain hopes to return to Atlantic City in the future, perhaps within a casino property. The chain is accepting franchise applications from interested parties to open a location at a casino.

The restaurant’s website encouraged people to continue to enjoy the restaurant at the nearest location in Maple Shade; Wilmington, Delaware; or King of Prussia, Pennsylvania.
