Mimi’s Café has a complete meal you can pick up and take home so you don’t need to fret or cook. All you have to do is enjoy the day or if you choose you can simply drive to Mimi’s and eat. Ready-2-eat and heat-N-eat fresh prepared food from non-traditional retailers will experience record sales again this year.
Outback has flavored holiday beverages as well which can be a treat after the holiday meal while shopping on Friday or treated as an adult desert. Try one and you will see what I mean.
If you still want to cook some but not the Turkey don’t worry you can buy a Cajun Turkey from Popeye’s with the sides or without. The restaurant industry is beginning to embrace the ready-2-eat and heat-N-eat fresh prepared food aka the grocerant niche. We know customers do.
