Boston's Restaurant & Sports Bar is bringing a franchise location to West Fargo, ND sometime in 2017.

The company, based in Dallas, TX, has 28 locations in 22 states. The menu is known for its gourmet pizzas, as well as its pastas, sandwiches, and salads. The franchise will combine a family friendly atmosphere in its restaurant, along with a sports bar. If you've ever been to a city with a Boston's, you'd know it's a popular place to frequent when the big games are on.

This is not the first time a Boston's Restaurant & Sports Bar has had a location in North Dakota. In 2005, a Boston's opened up in Grand Forks, but was closed in 2008, and replaced by Space Aliens.

In the news release that announced the incoming franchise, it was said the group bringing it to North Dakota, headed by Tyler Birkland, would also target Bismarck, Minot, and other areas of Fargo for potential future locations. There were no specifics given as to where the West Fargo restaurant will be located.

Birkland currently owns a Boston's in Prince Albert, Canada. His partnering group, which includes members Gregg Most and Jim Werschler, currently operate a total of 14 restaurants overall in Saskatchewan.
