Restaurant chain Boston Market has been acquired by Engage Brands, which is part of the Rohan Group of Companies, which also owns multiple franchised restaurant locations, including brands under the Pizza Hut and Checker’s Rally’s namesake.
Boston Market , the fast-casual chain best known for its carryout meals, has shuttered 45 of its locations across the country — about 10% of all stores. Back in its heyday in the 1990s, the company boasted over 1,100 restaurants across the country. Today, that number is down to about 400 locations.
Boston Market sells complete Thanksgiving meals that can serve up to 12 people, ranging in price from $69.99 to $119.99 .
Boston Market closed 45 locations in 2019. It has also seen declining sales in recent years. According to Mashed, Boston Market’s then CEO, Frances Allen, said last year that the closures were necessary in order for the company to have a shot at surviving in the long-term.
In 1998, the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Boston Market was purchased by McDonald’s Corporation in May 2000. McDonald’s purchased the company for its real estate, but found the brand serviceable and therefore continued to operate and expand.
McDonald’s Corp., the Illinois fast-food giant that owns Boston Market , is selling the chain to the Florida buyout firm to focus on hamburgers. McDonald’s acquired Boston Market’s operations for $176.2 million in May 2000.
