In fact, it's been so long since I've seen them around I barely even remember what Boston Market is even about!

The final remaining Boston Market in West Michigan closed its doors for good in Holland, MI back in 2022. At that time 14 Boston Markets remained in Michigan. Are they still there?

So, I think that's all she wrote. It's curtains for Boston Market.
