Boston Market Expands Menu To Include A New Late Night Selections
The rotisserie everything experts at Boston Market are bringing home style cooking to late night with the introduction of an all new menu of crave-able sliders and bowls – giving night owls (or should we say chickens) an array of tasty, better-for-you options to enjoy when those nighttime cravings come calling.

Available nightly at Boston Market restaurants nationwide from 9 p.m. to close – even midnight or later in some areas – the introduction of the new daypart menu is the largest menu innovation or expansion Boston Market has made in recent history, as the fast casual chain continues on its path towards growth and national expansion.

“When it comes to filling those late night cravings, historically there are only two options to choose from – settle for what’s already in the fridge or grab an unhealthy and often greasy meal from the nearest quick service concept,” says Randy Miller, President of Boston Market.
