When news broke last week that Chick-fil-A had an agreement to move into the Boylston Street location now occupied by a Boloco, it was news not just to fans and haters of the chicken chain, but to Boloco.
Boloco owner John Pepper says today:
Related to the rumors of Chick Fil A taking over our Copley location, there is not yet any agreement for Boloco to leave. We have a lease thru 2020 and a decade of options after. We are working with landlord to find a solution based on what we’ve read
The owner of the building is Raj Dhanda, who also owns the Crimson Galleria in Harvard Square and other commercial properties. Last year, Dhanda filed a federal RICO lawsuit to try to block a medical-marijuana dispensary from opening in Harvard Square.
