Boston Market is a chain of fast-casual restaurants that specializes in rotisserie chicken and other home-style dishes such as meatloaf, turkey, and pot pies. The first Boston Market restaurant was opened in Newton, Massachusetts in 1985 under the name "Boston Chicken". The chain grew rapidly in the 1990s and expanded its menu to include a variety of sides, sandwiches, and salads.
In 1998, the company changed its name to Boston Market to reflect its expanding menu offerings. However, the chain struggled financially in the late 1990s and early 2000s, and filed for bankruptcy in 1998 and again in 2018.
Today, Boston Market operates over 300 locations in the United States, and continues to serve its signature rotisserie chicken along with a range of sides, sandwiches, and salads. The chain also offers catering services for events and special occasions.
