Career Site

Boston Market is a leader in the fast-casual restaurant category, providing time-pressed consumers with great-tasting, convenient meals. Boston Market has over 490 locations in 28 states and are noted for home-style food including rotisserie chicken, carved turkey, meatloaf and roast sirloin accompanied by side orders such as potatoes, macaroni and fresh vegetables.

In 2001, Boston Market has introduced healthier food items under 550 calories to its menu.

The company also partners with leading supermarket chains to bring restaurant-quality, Boston Market-branded meals into the deli department so shoppers can enjoy the one-stop convenience of purchasing ready-to-heat meals at the same time they do their grocery shopping. The company is also one of the largest providers of catering services.

Boston Market was sold by the McDonald's Corporation in August 2007 to private equity firm Sun Capital Partners.

History

The restaurant was founded in December 1985 as Boston Chicken and its first restaurant opened in Newton, MA. In 1995, Boston Chicken restaurants would change their name to Boston Market to reflect the addition of ham, turkey and meat loaf.

In 1999, The H.J. Heinz Company began offering Boston Market Home Style Meals, a line of premium frozen meals sold in grocery stores across the country.

Boston Market grew rapidly in the 1990s and sales eventually slowed and the company filed for bankruptcy. The chain was acquired by McDonald's in May 2000.
