3 Days to Open: Melt Mobile

When Bobby Flay arrived at Diana and Darlene's Melt Mobile food truck in Stamford, Conn., he wasn't sure if this venture would ever take to the road — especially since the team had just three days until the opening . These two best friends quit their jobs to pursue this dream, but after mortgaging their homes, they were left with almost no money to open their business with. Before Bobby could consider the task complete, he needed to help the team fix these six crucial issues: organization, food knowledge, wait time, expediting, food quality and packaging.

Bobby left his mission saying that he felt Melt Mobile was "a well-oiled machine." Is it still running that way? Has Darlene and Diana's friendship withstood all the stress of opening a business? We checked in with Melt Mobile to see how things are going a few months after their visit from Bobby. Click play on the video below for a 3 Days to Open update.
