Boston’s to open location in Waunakee

Spot opening up in summer 2019

Boston’s Pizza Restaurant & Sports Bar, a national casual dining brand, is coming to Waunakee in summer 2019, officials announced Tuesday.

According to a release, the casual dining concept combines a family-friendly restaurant with a sports bar.

The Waunakee location will be situated at Kilkenny Commons, which has 23 locations in 16 states and 11 locations in the works.

Local Waunakee residents Derrek and Kelcey Kinzel are opening the spot after extensive work in the hospitality industry. The restaurant is expected to bring 75 to 100 jobs to the area.

“When we initially began looking into franchising and owning our own business, we were immediately drawn to the Boston’s concept. What led us to invest was the fact that we truly fell in love with the brand and Boston’s corporate team,” said Derrek Kinzel. “Not only do we believe Boston’s is an outstanding concept, but [we] feel it is the perfect addition to the Waunakee area.”

Boston’s specializes in gourmet pizza and pasta, with a menu featuring nearly 90 items including salads, sandwiches, burgers, wings and ribs. The company’s sister brand, Boston Pizza has more than 400 locations throughout Canada.
