Restaurant at Beacon Center appears to have closed
The Boston Market restaurant, a longtime fixture at Beacon Center, no longer seems to be in operation.
The darkened storefront has a “closed” sign on the front door and leasing information in the window. No one picked up the phone during normal business hours, and the restaurant no longer appears on the store locator on Boston Market’s website.
A representative from Saul Centers declined Dec. 13 to comment on the situation; however, the real estate investment trust’s brochure
lists the 3,400 square-foot space as available. The pad site is located at 6650 Richmond Highway between Bank of America and TGI Fridays.
Restaurant Business magazine reported Dec. 12 that the owner of the Boston Market chain declared personal bankruptcy recently. The news report also mentioned an ongoing lawsuit by US Foods against the chain, as well as recent evictions and closures of Boston Market restaurants in other parts of the United States.
In recent months, the Richmond Highway location had often had a “cash only” sign on the door, and patrons reported on Google Reviews that certain food items and fountain drinks were no longer available.
