Boston’s Restaurant & Sports Bar Names New President

by Katie Lee

Dallas — Boston’s Restaurant & Sports Bar (Boston’s), a Dallas-based casual dining concept, has named industry veteran Eric Taylor as its new president.

Taylor arrives at Boston’s with more than 15 years of senior leadership experience at several international restaurant brands, including Sbarro and Bennigan’s. In his most recent position, Taylor served as the senior vice president and chief development officer at Rita’s Italian Ice and was responsible for expanding its global footprint while overseeing more than 600 units.

As president, Taylor’s day-to-day responsibilities will include oversight on all U.S. operations and strategic planning for franchise development. With his sights set on building off of Boston’s “Road to 100,” a growth strategy implemented earlier this year, Taylor will first visit several locations across the U.S. to establish trusting relationships with franchisees, develop best practices, and better link the brand with executive operations. In addition to a clear focus on franchise development, Taylor will also work to leverage Boston’s newly designed prototype.

“The Boston’s team is thrilled to welcome Eric Taylor as the new Boston’s U.S. president, as he exemplifies the leadership style and operational experience that Boston’s needs to grow and succeed as a company,” says Mark Pacinda, president and CEO of Boston Pizza International.

Boston’s Restaurant & Sports Bar’s U.S. operations are based in Dallas. The company currently has 29 locations operating in 22 states and 12 locations in Mexico. The company’s sister brand, Boston Pizza, has more than 400 locations throughout Canada.
