Boston’s Restaurant & Sports Bar Named One of Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top Global Companies

Beloved Casual-Plus Dining Brand Breaks Top 100 on Prestigious Global Franchise Ranking

DALLAS - July 15, 2015 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - On the heels of a record setting year for international development, Entrepreneur magazine has named Boston’s Restaurant & Sports Bar (Boston’s) as one of the country’s top global franchises. The ranking was formulated as part of the annual Top Global Companies® list, a comprehensive selection of the top 200 global franchise systems. At No. 71, Boston’s joins the likes of mega-brands such as Anytime Fitness, 7-Eleven and Subway that also broke the top 100.

The ranking was based on specific criteria and only companies seeking new franchisees outside the U.S. and with a minimum of five open international locations were considered for this list. To compile the ranking, Entrepreneur started with each company’s 2015 Franchise 500® score - based on objective, quantifiable criteria including system size, growth and financial strength and stability - then adjusted to give extra weight to international size and growth.

“Almost every franchise system knows that becoming a household name in the U.S. is no easy task, but expanding brand awareness outside our borders can be an even bigger challenge,” said Troy Cooper, Chief Operating Officer for Boston’s. “Our ranking on Entrepreneur’s Top Global Companies list is a true testament to our widespread efforts on international development and we are extremely excited about Boston’s future both here and abroad.”

With eight locations already established in Mexico and deals signed to bring nine additional units to the area, Boston’s is showing no sign of slowing down their international development efforts. In fact, the company is looking to establishing a total of 11 restaurants in Mexico by the end of 2015, the first of which will open in Tuxtla this August. The newly signed deals include a seven-unit signing in Monterrey, a two-unit deal in Chiapas and another seven-unit agreement for Mexico City. Boston’s has sold to date a total 34 units, all slated to open by the end of 2018. With its extensive international expansion in full swing, the brand also announced plans to develop a new corporate office in Mexico City, further establishing its footprint as an international brand with 3 corporate offices in Canada and 1 in the United States.

Stateside, the company currently has 27 locations operating in 22 states and the company’s sister brand, Boston Pizza which is celebrating more than 50 years of service, has more than 375 locations throughout Canada and is considered the No. 1 casual dining brand in the country.
