…AND Sports Bar

- 2 experiences under 1 roof
A fresh experience
Whether it’s dinner with family or catching up over drinks and a game with friends, Boston’s provides its fans an opportunity to enjoy themselves in a fun, comfortable setting. We cater to our youngest fans with a large Kids play area complete with games, crafts and movies to guarantee everyone in the family is having a great time. The sports bar, open late and equipped with numerous big screens, ensures a great view of the game from every seat, while the restaurant offers a more intimate setting. There’s also an outdoor patio that’s perfect for hot summer nights. Our innovative, 2-in-1 setup, extensive menu, and friendly service make it easy for our guests to have a great time, no matter their reason for stopping by. And if they can’t make it in, we offer delivery and catering services, too.
“By providing the ideal guest experience, offering the highest quality food and service, and continuing to innovate our business practices, we’re committed to pursuing our goal of having a Boston’s everywhere.” – Jim Treliving, Chairman and Owner

You can apply online now. Once your application is received, an initial discussion with the Director of Franchise Development will be scheduled via phone or face-to-face, where you’ll be presented with a more detailed overview of the Boston’s enterprise and leadership team.
After meeting with the Director of Franchise Development, you’ll be asked to complete a questionnaire, sign an FDD, and undergo a credit and background check. Once you’ve met the requirements you may then be asked to schedule a Discovery Day, where you and our executive team can get to know each another better.
Upon approval, we’ll meet with a real estate broker for your selected city, develop a demographic study to determine specific trade areas, and confirm whether the area being considered is available for development. We’ll also look at any opportunities to convert an existing property that meets our site and demographic requirements. From here, we’ll consult with our legal department to identify and process any additional documents required, including a Restaurant Developer Agreement (RDA).
The initial franchisee agreement term is 10 years with (2) 5-year renewable options. There are two agreement types: Option one is a single-site agreement and option two is a multi-restaurant development agreement (MRDA) designating a trade area, number of restaurants, and a development schedule.
Before the restaurant opens, the franchisee and management team will participate in a six-week training program at the Boston’s training center. Next, we provide a three- to four-week in-restaurant training course before your grand opening. Boston’s also provides ongoing field support. Learn more about our amazing support services.
