Concept

The Boston Pizza concept has more locations, serving more customers annually than any other casual dining concept in the country.

Three Distinct Dining Experiences

Boston Pizza restaurants offer a casual dining atmosphere with more than 100 menu items including a unique selection of gourmet pizzas, mouth-watering pastas and a wide variety of appetizers, meal-sized salads, entrees and desserts. Each Boston Pizza location provides "three experiences under one roof", with a full service, family friendly casual dining restaurant, a separate sports bar, and take-out and delivery options.

Restaurant

The restaurant is perfect for families, teams and groups of all ages. A typical restaurant is 5,000 to 6,300 square feet and has seating for 160 to 270 guests in total. Most restaurants also have an outdoor patio to accommodate guests during the warmer months.

Sports Bar

The sports bar area features sports memorabilia, big screen TVs and games in a contemporary setting. These attributes attract groups to watch live sporting events and keep our guests coming back again and again.

Take-out and Delivery

Boston Pizza Restaurants have a well developed take-out and delivery business by virtue of their broad menu and focus on pizza, a traditional take-out and delivery item. Take-out and delivery sales represent approximately 15% of total system-wide sales nationally.
