The company expects to generate 70 employment opportunities for each new Boston location.

Recently, the gourmet pizza franchise completed a menu and restaurant redesign to provide enhanced technology, as well as modernised outdoor spaces and fire pits.

Boston’s Pizza International president Jeff Melnick said: “Experienced restaurant operators and franchisees are attracted to Boston’s because the company is on track to double our size in the number of restaurant locations within the next three years.

“The brand’s motto, ‘We’ll make you a fan,’ not only refers to our customers, but to our franchise community as well. We are committed to providing extensive training and support in site selection, IT, marketing, operations, new product development and more.

“We are constantly evaluating our menu and making sure our made-from-scratch dough and gourmet pizza aren’t the only items bringing in recurring guests. We make sure every new menu roll out reflects the most appetizing dishes relevant to the guest taste buds of today and tomorrow.”
