Our Story


Our Mission

To create awesome rotisserie meals, served quickly, by warm and friendly people.


In 1985, Arthur Cores and Steve Kolow took three simple ingredients—fire, a spit, and chicken—and revolutionized the restaurant industry forever. They opened the very first Boston Market, then called Boston Chicken, in Newton, Massachusetts, with a rotisserie and a dream.

Today, there are more than 450 Boston Market locations nationwide, focused on making delicious home-cooked meals for people who don’t have the time to cook at home. Specializing in juicy Rotisserie Chicken and home style favorites, our classic food is a modern hit.

In a world filled with fast food factories focused on making food faster, more portable, and more profitable, Boston Market remains devoted to just one thing: making food good.


Served with a smile

Nothing complements a good meal like great service. Our team members run each restaurant like their own dining room, and anyone who comes to enjoy our food is a welcomed guest.

We may have more than 450 restaurants and 10,000 employees, but it’s a small world at Boston Market.

Don’t be surprised if you’re greeted by name at your neighborhood Boston Market. Or the door is opened for you. Or your food is served on a real plate with a real smile.

We hope every visit, every conversation, and every bite is All Good.
