“We know our guests are busy, and finding a restaurant that offers satisfying, nutritious meals, outside of a traditional salad offering, can be challenging,” said George Michel, CEO of Boston Market (a.k.a. “The Big Chicken”). “At Boston Market we believe a healthy meal can still be a great tasting, filling one, and our ‘Meals Under 550 Calories’ menu is designed to help guests enjoy lower calorie options that taste great.”
The new menu is the latest initiative at Boston Market to improve the nutritional profile of its food and to promote healthy eating habits. In 2012, the fast-casual chain removed salt shakers from tables in all its restaurants while committing to reduce sodium levels in all Boston Market signature items by 20 percent and in all menu items by 15 percent by the end of 2014.
