So, I guess this means that soon, Boston Market will have America's Favourite Macaroni&Cheese?

This is actually pretty interesting. Boston Market, aka Boston Chicken, back in the day, was one of the first of the recent breed of highly publicized IPOs. For a time it was flying very high. The restaurants always got great reviews, too, but it wasn't enough, the stock tanked, and they ran out of money.

Now they'll be part of one of the best-managed restaurant franchisers on the planet. Could be a second wind for them.
