Melt Bakery is approaching its third year as a standalone shop on Orchard Street. To mark the occasion, owners Julian Plyter and Kareem Ramady have gutted the store. It’s an attempt to “make the store a friendlier place” for customers. Much needed. This place always seems pretty cramped.
The dessert shop released the following information on the “Melt makeover” in a recent press release:
This exciting project will make the store a friendlier place for you all to come while away the springtime hours while enjoying your favorite ice cream sandwich. It’s been a lot of fun building and slowly inching the store toward the place we really want it to be – this final touch will seal the deal and we can’t wait to welcome you to our updated home.
Melt Bakery hopes to reopen the dessert shop by this weekend. Meanwhile, the business remains operational, and will continue to fulfill and deliver orders during the transition.
The popular dessert company debuted at 132 Orchard Street in June 2012. It’s a textbook example of food vendor gone brick-and-mortar, having begun its journey on the pushcart network of the Hester Fair and High Line.
