After nearly nine years in business, the Burlington Boloco closed on October 16. Located on Church Street, the chain burrito joint offered options such as Buffalo burritos made with antibiotic-free chicken, and Jimmy Carter milkshakes with peanut butter and banana. It's one of five Boloco locations recently sold to another chain, b.good.
The restaurant's tagline is "real.food.fast." Its menu includes a local apple and bacon bowl with kale, avocado, pomegranate and cranberries; beef, turkey and veggie burgers dressed up with a variety of fixings; and spiced-pumpkin smoothies.
According to Boloco's aptly named owner and cofounder, John Pepper, current staffers were given the option of staying on at the new business. No word yet on when the Church Street spot will reopen. Meanwhile, if you miss the fare at Boloco, there are still 10 locations in and around Boston.
