KO Pies at the Shipyard in East Boston Is Being Sold

More than two years ago, it was reported that the future of a beloved East Boston restaurant might close down or be sold at some point, and now we have learned that the end could now be in sight.

According to an article from boston.com, KO Pies at the Shipyard in East Boston is going to be sold, with the lease being up at the end of the year and owner Sam Jackson saying that he is heading back to his native Australia. The post indicates that any prospective buyer has two options--to take over the KO concept (including all the recipes and "all the secrets" Jackson has "around the meat pie world") or to purchase and beer and wine license and open a different concept within the space. (Jackson says that he is "comfortable either way.")

The original KO Catering & Pies in South Boston first opened in 2010, with that location closing in 2018; the East Boston outlet debuted in 2012 and is currently open for takeout and delivery, with the patio expected to reopen in March.

The address for KO Pies at the Shipyard is 256 Marginal Street (Building 16), East Boston, MA, 02128. Its website can be found at http://www.kocateringandpies.com/
