Boston Market. (restaurant)

Why do they advertise on my local TV channels for a Boston Market restaurant when the closest one is over 100 miles away? Sure, I will just nip over with a 4 hour drive to get some chicken that will be stone cold when I arrive at the party? Or, hold on kiddies, we will eat in just over two hours and then you do your homework on the ride home. lol

  • Weird. We have those ads too and I don't think they exist in the state anymore! I'm guessing the ads are for the parent company that is across the U.S,not the affiliate

  • I agree with xtwil Sonics never rocked my boat. Most of our local Sonics are now closed. No great loss.

  • I get coupons in the local paper and the nearest one is 2 hours away...... I just don't get it. Their food is tasty, but not THAT tasty!

  • I wonder if it a marketing ploy to create a need or desire, like a test market. It just bugs me when they have what looks like a great deal and then I read the bottom of the screen and it says "Available in Birmingham only" Well, the next time I have a doctors appointment I will go and find this place.
