Last year Standing O announced that Boston Market was opening at Spring Creek Plaza. To make the construction site a bit more pleasing to the community, the folks at Boston Market partnered with artists Miss BoomBox and LadyKFever — who worked with students from IS 364 Gateway Middle School, Frederick Douglass Academy VIII Middle School, and PS 346 Abe Stark Elementary School to create murals depicting family meals and good things to eat.
George Michel (a.k.a. “The Big Chicken”), chief executive officer of Boston Market said. “We were thrilled to collaborate with Gateway Middle School and Frederick Douglass Academy to showcase the talent of these students who captured the essence of what family mealtime means to them.”
The restaurant asked locals to cast votes on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to say which mural made their mouths water most.
Standing O is happy to announce that on Feb. 1 at the grand opening Deputy Borough President Diana Reyna announced the winner and presented a $3,000 check to the Frederick Douglass Academy VIII Middle School. IS 364 Gateway Middle School received $2,000, and local elementary PS 346 Abe Stark Elementary School received $1,000.
“It was a joy to see our local schools, artists, and community come together to support the students and their artwork,” the deputy beep said. “These murals showcased an immense amount of talent by our young people.”
Borough President Adams is excited about the prospect of new dining options in Spring Creek.
“I look forward to Boston Market joining the community and offering our residents a family-friendly dining option,” he said.
Standing O agrees Boston Market is a great, family-friendly place to eat. What are you waiting for? The counters are open, and the sides are waiting!
