JP Licks will open three new locations in 2013, including one in the Back Bay.
The Back Bay location is expected to open at 1106 Boylston St. Two other locations will be at Assembly Road in Somerville and 1106 Boylston Street in Lynnfield. This week, Rockland Trust announced $4.5 million in financing to help the company expand.
“Rockland Trust is excited to support the expansion of J.P. Licks,” said Michael Lindberg, First Vice President and Commercial Lending Center Manager at Rockland Trust. “This company is a beloved local institution in the Greater Boston area that is committed to serving both its customers and the community."
JP Licks was established in 1981 and currently has 11 locations. JP Licks had had a shop at 352 Newbury St. but lost its lease and shut down in March. In May, it opened a store at 150 Charles St. on Beacon Hill.
