Boston Market Initiates Price Fixing Lawsuit


Boston Market has filed a lawsuit naming approximately ten major integrators as defendants.  The company alleges that it was overcharged for chicken purchased between 2008 and 2017 due to illegal collusion among producers and manipulation of chicken production to limit supply.


Boston Market operates 450 restaurants in 28 states and employees 14,000.  Currently Boston Market is owned by the Rohan Group and functions under the Engaged Brands family.


In 1998 the company filed for Chapter 11 Reorganization and was purchased by McDonald’s Corporation during the spring of 2000.  In 2007 McDonald’s divested the chain to Sun Capital Partners that operated the brand until 2020.
