While one former Upper Crust owner appears to have some ties to the Lexington Store, a new pizza shop in Hingham is expected to open on Tuesday under the management of another former owner of the embattled pizzeria.
A former Upper Crust owner, who allegedly exploited his former employees, is now working for the new Peel Pizza Company, which will open in its former location in Hingham Square next week. Brendan Higgins, who was a co-owner of Upper Curst when it went bankrupt, is the brother-in-law of Peel Pizza Company’s owner, Matthew Troy. On Thursday, Troy said Higgins will be working for his new pizza business as a manager, but wants no affiliation to the Upper Crust. “This company is 100 percent owned by me,” Troy said. “It’s 100 percent my investment dollars. We have zero affiliation with the Upper Crust and we would like to keep it that way.” Higgins was a co-owner of the Upper Crust with Joshua Huggard and founder Jordan Tobins before they …

New brewers will toast the past with a lineup featuring a 1775 Tavern ale, Barrett’s Farmhouse Ale, a Lexington Green East India Pale Ale and a Midnight Ride Tavern Porter.
Like so many Americans before them, Jeremy Cross and Scott Houghton looked to the Battle Road as a symbol of freedom. The hallowed stretch from Concord to Lexington (and from there on into Boston) along which colonial militias once engaged the British Regulars in a running battle, has quenched many a thirst over the years: For freedom, for innovation, for grape juice and, now, for craft beer. Brewers with 35 years of industry experience between them, Cross and Houghton have decided to branch out on their own, starting Battle Road Brewing Company. While finding a name that evokes a reaction is considered crucial for breweries, it was an easy choice for Cross and Houghton. In Battle Road Brewing Company, they’ve got one that neatly combines …

Chick-fil-A CEO’s comments against gay marriage became a big issue, and now Amazon's Jeff Bezos has contributed millions to support same-sex marriage.
When Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy recently said, “We are very much supportive of the family—the biblical definition of the family unit,” he stirred the pot on gay marriage. The CEO's statements ignited strong reactions, like that of Boston Mayor Thomas Menino who said he plans to block the restaurant from opening in the city. Now, Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon, has put the money behind his support of same sex marriage. He donated $2.5 million to defend Washington state's same-sex marriage law. What do you think? Should people and even governments boycott the chain because of the company's political views?
