Boston Market Corporation--formerly Boston Chicken Inc.--grew rapidly after its start in 1985. The quick expansion, however, proved to be the demise of the firm, and in 1998 Boston Market was forced to declare bankruptcy. McDonald's Corporation purchased the struggling chain of restaurants in 2000 and implemented a turnaround strategy designed to rebuild the Boston Market brand. In 2002, the company operated 650 company-owned restaurants in 28 states that offered home-style entrees, fresh vegetables, sandwiches, salads, soups, side dishes, and desserts. Boston Market also offers catering services along with frozen meals available in supermarkets through a partnership with HJ Heinz Company.




New St. Louis Ribs

After the warmest March on record and with outdoor activities just around the corner, Boston Market is giving guests an early taste of their favorite seasonal dishes. The restaurant chain is offering its BBQ Ribs & Chicken meal, served with two sides and fresh cornbread, for $12.99. The experts on home style cooking have mastered the slow roasting of St. Louis style ribs, which are slathered in a sweet, peppery barbecue sauce.

First offered in 2013, the BBQ Ribs menu item has become a guest favorite at Boston Market, especially when paired with the signature Rotisserie Chicken.

Boston Market’s St. Louis style seasoned ribs are slow-roasted and exceptionally meaty. The brand found that a 1/4 rack of the St. Louis variety yielded almost 2 ounces more meat than a 1/2 rack of baby back ribs from other fast casual competitors.
