Boston Pizza Restaurants

With over 40 years of success & more than 180 franchisees across the United States & Canada, we are continuing to expand.

Boston's the Gourmet Pizza Franchise For Sale Information:


With over 38 years of experience, we have developed a unique and popular casual dining and sports bar concept. The Boston's concept offers what many restaurants don't - two experiences under one roof - a casual dining restaurant and a bar.

Boston's the Gourmet Pizza is much more than just a family restaurant; it's also great for groups or teams. Featuring a sports bar, the atmosphere is great for catching a game on the TV, or accommodating a team that's looking for a comfortable, relaxing place to have a drink and socialize after the game.

Expansion into new markets has necessitated a different approach to franchise development. In the United States new store growth has primarily grown on a multi unit basis. In new markets BPI has adopted an area development model, selling area rights to larger more structured franchisee groups who have the resources necessary to develop a territory. Twenty new restaurants were opened in fiscal 2002.


At Boston's the Gourmet Pizza our Mission Statement is clear: To be a world class franchisor through selecting and training people to profitably manage an outstanding food service business. To achieve this goal we are innovative and responsive in our approach in business. We work as a team providing attention to detail but never losing sight of the larger picture. We recognize the need to provide leadership in all areas of operations, marketing, and restaurant development.
