Despite the coronavirus pandemic, the fast-casual brand Boston Market is continuing its aggressive national expansion with several area locations, writes Laura Smythe for the Philadelphia Business Journal.
The company is opening new restaurants in Gilbertsville, Aston, and Oxford. The new locations are expected to launch by October 31. They are each expected to employ between 30 and 35 staff.
According to Boston Market President Randy Miller, the chain is looking at greater Philadelphia as its number one market for growth.
The latest locations are part of the company’s expansion plans that envision increasing the current number of 320 stores by at least 50 percent over the next three to five years.
Also as part of these plans, the company will continue to expand in the Philadelphia area as well as in New York, Boston, Baltimore, and potentially Washington, D.C. Boston Market is also eying South Carolina, North Carolina, and Florida as other potential locations.
All of the new locations in the Philadelphia area were different restaurants. This allowed the company to reduce its costs associated with opening a new eatery, such as installing walk-in refrigerators and freezers.
