The chain expects to serve 1.5 million diners this holiday season.
LEBANON, Tenn. – Cracker Barrel Old Country Store is cooking up Thanksgiving dinners. Consumers can pre-order the company’s Homestyle Turkey n’ Dressing Family Meals To-Go online and pick up the meals starting the Tuesday before Thanksgiving.
The Homestyle Turkey n’ Dressing Family Meals To-Go include turkey and dressing, gravy, a sampling of sugar cured ham, a choice of three quart-sized sides, cranberry relish and a choice of biscuits, corn muffins, or a loaf of sourdough bread.
On Thanksgiving Day, Cracker Barrel estimates it will serve approximately:
- 460,000 lbs. of turkey
- 5.3 million oz. of gravy
- 1.2 million oz. of cranberry relish
- 1.5 million guests
“Preparing the Thanksgiving meal can be quite a chore,” said Bill Kintzler, Cracker Barrel executive chef. “Our new Heat n’ Serve Holiday Family Meals To-Go not only take the legwork out of preparing a traditional Thanksgiving meal, but also give people more time to relax and enjoy the day with their loved ones.
“Over the Thanksgiving holiday, Cracker Barrel’s mission of Pleasing People takes on special meaning as we help families save time and ease their minds during a busy holiday season,” Kintzler said. “We look forward to serving a record number of guests this Thanksgiving Day.”
Additionally, all Cracker Barrel restaurants will be open on Thanksgiving Day to serve a special Homestyle Turkey n’ Dressing Meal to dine-in guests.
