Vermont is one of the few states in the Union without a Boston Market, but Queen City diners in search of similar rotisserie chicken and sides will soon be in luck. On September 1, Brett Frazer of Hartland plans to open North End Rotisserie on the corner of North Winooski Avenue and North Street in Burlington.
Frazer could not be reached for comment, but his realtor, Peter Yee of Redstone, says his client has a history in the spit-roasted-bird biz — he spent a decade as general manager of a Beantown Boston Market location.
When Frazer decided to rent the old Dino’s Pizza North, Yee relates, he figured he’d have to learn to sling pies. But his realtor advised him to put his poultry experience to work.
So North End Rotisserie will sell whole, half and quarter chickens for diners to eat in or take out, and they can get a “meal deal” by tacking on comfort-food sides. “It will be in the medium- to lower-price range,” Yee says.
Justin Turcotte: Gotta love our little food Mecca!
Roy: Meh. They can't compare to Red Hen and dealing with Hunt is often not worth the trouble.
Tammy Goughnour: This will be AWESOME!! Their pastry is out of this world!!
Old Vermonter: Amazing they lasted so long with such terrible business acumem
Bryan Bouchard: It wasn't that good before. Of they didn't reopen it wouldn't be a great loss to the Burlington…
