CEO, Tom Boucher reports that this Concord location is very similar to their other T-BONES locations, and that he has been searching for just the right location in Concord for quite some time.

The look and feel will be similar to the other T-BONES locations, but it will have an updated interior design and new finishes, which will be headed up by Boucher’s business partner, Mark Fenske, and Boucher’s wife, Dana Boucher. Market Square Architects out of Portsmouth is designing the project while Fulcrum Associates has been contracted for construction. Boucher says they will create more than 100 new jobs at the new Concord T-BONES, which is planned to open in the winter of 2020.

This is the first Hilton property for Duprey Hospitality, however it will be the fifth hotel managed by the company in Concord.

“We are thrilled to be building a Tru by Hilton in Concord. The location, right off of I-93, is perfect for people traveling throughout our beautiful state. Duprey Hospitality prides itself on premier customer service and positive guest experiences, and we are looking forward to adding a new property to our portfolio. In addition, we are excited to be developing the site with Great NH Restaurants and to have a T-BONES restaurant right on site. It’s a great combination–rooms right next to a popular family-friendly, casual dining NH restaurant and bar.” said Duprey.
