About Boston Market

Boston Market

Boston Market, known as Boston Chicken until 1995, headquartered in Golden, Colorado, is a chain of American fast casual restaurants. It is owned by private equity firm Sun Capital Partners, headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida.

History

Founded in December 1985 in Newton, Massachusetts, by Steven Kolow and Arthur Cores. The chain grew rapidly in the early and mid-1990s. Despite its apparent success, the company raised much debt to finance its expansion.[citation needed] The rapid expansion allowed the company to create a steady stream of revenue from one-time development fees and increasing royalties, but also higher interest rates on its development loans. In 1998, the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

The "Boston Marathon"

Partnering with Major League Eating, Boston Market has introduced a new marketing campaign called the "Boston Marathon." The competition involves eating three whole chickens, two pot pies, eight pieces of cornbread, six sides, and two desserts of choice in under an hour with no help. Competitive eater Nathan "Sweet Potato" Nevins was the inaugural person inducted into the "Wing of Honor" for completing this feat.A statue of Nevins was erected in his honor outside the original Boston Market location.

Trademark dispute

In 2002, Boston Pizza commenced a lawsuit against Boston Market in the Federal Court of Canada over the trademark use of the word "Boston" in Canada.In its defense, Boston Market alleged that Boston Pizza's trademarks were invalid because it described a style of pizza from a specific area.The dispute continued after Boston Market ceased operations in Canada in 2004.The parties settled the dispute in 2008 under an agreement that Boston Market would not use the words "Boston" or "Boston Market" in Canada for five years for restaurants or any food or drink products (other than pre-packaged food products, but not including pizza and lasagna).
