Boston Market in Saugus Has Closed
One of the oldest locations of a chain of restaurants that got its start in the Boston area has shut down.
According to a source, Boston Market in Saugus appears to be closed for good, with a check on the chain's website seeming to confirm this (the location is no longer on the site) along with the Yelp page for the Route 1 eatery stating that it is indeed permanently closed. The closest existing locations to the now-shuttered Saugus shop are in Swampscott and Medford, with other local stores being in Boston's Back Bay/Fenway area, Dorchester, Waltham, Quincy, Norwood, Brockton, and Framingham. It appears that the Saugus location of Boston Market had been in business since at least the early to mid-1990s.
Boston Market first started out in Newtonville as Boston Chicken in 1985, moving its headquarters to Colorado in the 1990s and eventually changing over to its current name. The chain is known in part for its rotisserie chicken options.
The address for this now-closed location of Boston Market was 168 Broadway, Saugus, MA, 01906. The website for the chain can be found at https://www.bostonmarket.com/
