and atmosphere that Boston’s provides is perfect for families and sports
lovers in Playa del Carmen and we are confident that this concept will
be welcomed to this area and look forward to serving the community.”

for our brand for many reasons,” said Ericka Garza, Director of

most recent deal in Quintana Roo show that as a company, we are well on
the way to meeting our international development goals, but it further
validates that the Boston’s concept is able to flourish in countries
outside of the U.S. and Canada.”
