“Said by Greg Hernandez, The Melt’s vice president of operations, to be the first of its kind in the retail food industry, the Smart Box was a design, 10 months in the making, created specifically to allow The Melt’s urban locations to deliver grilled cheese sandwiches that are still hot and chewy, and not soggy. You know, like a grilled cheese sandwich ought to be… At the bottom of the box, there’s an aluminum heat mass. Plugged into an electrical outlet, the mass heats to 210 degrees Fahrenheit, at which point the box can go mobile. A small light turns from red to green, letting the store manager know it’s time to go.” w/ photos
