America’s go-to turkey experts also offer guests a new way to celebrate the holiday early this year
New Albany, OH (RestaurantNews.com) According to a 2021 survey, Americans hosting Thanksgiving dinner will spend an average of 9.6 hours preparing their holiday feast for friends and family. Bob Evans Restaurants is encouraging hosts to get out of the kitchen and into the family room by trusting us to do the work this holiday season. Bob Evans’ Farmhouse Feasts are a collection of complete holiday meals to-go that can accommodate gatherings of any size and can be heated and served in two hours or less – returning valuable time back to families. Each Farmhouse Feast meal is available for dine-in, carryout or delivery*. (*Delivery and other fees may apply.)
Mastering signature Thanksgiving recipes for more than 30 years, Bob Evans Restaurants serves slow-roasted turkey, slow-roasted pot roast and hickory-smoked ham, alongside farm-fresh sides and seasonal pies every day. And when you’ve been helping families celebrate Thanksgiving for as long as Bob Evans has, you understand what family time really means.
“While we know some hosts enjoy spending all day in the kitchen, we also know that there are just as many who would much rather spend that time with their loved ones,” said Bob Holtcamp, President and CMO for Bob Evans Restaurants. “Our Farmhouse Feasts allow people the option to spend the day how they want to spend it while giving them the peace of mind that their guests will get to enjoy a farm-fresh holiday meal.”
