Shaquille O’Neal-Owned Big Chicken Adds Six More Restaurants to Boston

December 07, 2023 // // BOSTON - Today, Big Chicken announced that it has signed its latest agreement with experienced QSR owners and operators. The four friends, Martin Lachance, Barry Lattuca, Michael Scibelli and James O’Hanlon will bring an additional six Big Chicken locations to Boston, Metro West, Cape Cod and the Northshore regions.

“With a deep-rooted history in Boston and its restaurant scene, we are thrilled to venture into the exciting world of Big Chicken,” said Lattuca. "When we went for the discovery day, we knew it was the right fit because we truly love the product and the passion behind it. For us, it's not just about the celebrity connection; it's about the food. We can’t wait to expand the brand's presence along the coast of Boston.”

With their extensive background in various fields and rich experience in restaurant ownership, marketing, entertainment, and community involvement, the team is well-equipped to operate and shape Big Chicken restaurants in Massachusetts.

The team also owns two MOOYAH Burgers, Fries & Shakes restaurants in the Boston area, making Big Chicken their second venture all together as a group.

“Martin, Barry, Michael and James all understand that delivering an experience filled with BIG fun and BIG flavor to our guests is at the heart of Big Chicken,” said CEO Josh Halpern. “Knowing their background and where they all come from, I’m thrilled to see what they will collectively bring to the table with this expansion in Boston. And, it’s been great to see the excitement for the brand building in an area that holds a special place in my career journey too.”

The newest franchise agreement in Boston will add to the locations in development nationwide for the brand.
