Last summer, Luke's Lobster confirmed rumors that the New York-based lobster roll chain intended to expand to Boston in the "near future." That hasn't happened yet, but the dream is not dead. Today, Boston Restaurant Talk spotted an article in the Portland Press Herald profiling Luke himself (that would be founder Luke Holden).
"Holden plans to open two more locations in New York this year, and three to five new locations each year in the next five years," reports the Herald. "Ultimately he can foresee building up to 40 restaurants and venturing into cities such as Boston and Chicago. He said he likes knowing each restaurant's managers and shift leaders, and does not want to lose the company's family-friendly feel."
The company was founded five years ago and now includes 13 restaurants in New York City, DC, and Philadelphia, as well as a seafood processing plant in Maine.
