Fall River Boston Market closing for good? Location reportedly owes nearly $300,000 in back rent



One of the few healthier fast-food options in the City of Fall River may be closing for good soon.

According to WCVB, the Fall River Boston Market® located at 30 12th Street has a sign left taped to the front door stating that the location would be shut down permanently on September 3 unless the company pays over $290,000 in back rent.

The news agency also reports that employees at some locations in Massachusetts are stating that they have not been paid in a month among a multitude of lawsuits from suppliers and employees trying to get paid.

This wouldn’t be the first time that the Fall River location closes. The fast-food chain had closed the eatery in early April of 2020 until further notice and reopened in May. The location’s Facebook page had stated at the time that the restaurant was permanently closed, and the corporate website had removed the Fall River Boston Market® from their web page. They have since been added back.

Also in May of 2020, Boston Market® announced that it had been acquired by Engage Brands, LLC, one of the Rohan Group of Companies, owned by real estate investor and restaurant operator, Jignesh (Jay) Pandya of Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Engage Brands assumed ownership of Boston Market®, purchasing the brand from affiliates of Sun Capital Partners, Inc. Terms of the private transaction were not disclosed.

Those still waiting on a paycheck from Boston Market can contact the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office online or by calling 617-727-3465.
