• Duluth Boston Market fails health inspection

    By: Carol Sbarge


    ATLANTA - 11/9/17 UPDATE - The restaurant has been reinspected and now has a 97.

    The Duluth location of a popular chain restaurant dropped 25 points during a recent health inspection and earned a failing score of 65.

    The Boston Market on Pleasant Hill Road was cited Oct. 30 for having a mold-like substance in the ice machine. Other violations included the fact that cut and whole chickens were not held at hot enough temperatures; knives used to cut raw chicken were not cleaned after use; and multiple pans were found in disrepair with cracks and burns.


    A customer told Channel 2’s Carol Sbarge that she felt the food at the restaurant usually was good and that the staff is friendly.

    No one at the restaurant would comment, but a Boston Market Corporate spokesperson said in an email: “We are addressing the issues raised in this inspection, many of which were addressed during the inspection, to ensure we return to the “A” rating we expected from this restaurant and all Boston Market restaurants.” The spokesperson said the restaurant previously met its high standards getting an “A” in May.

    Channel 2 Action News will monitor the situation and report when a re-inspection is done this month.
