At least one grocerant niche Ready-2-Eat and Heat-N-Eat fresh prepared food will grace 87.4% of all meals service at home this year according to Steven Johnson, Grocerant Guru® at Tacoma, WA based Foodservice Solutions®.
This year City Barbeque wants to sell you an entire meal and is now taking orders that available by reservation only. You can choose from a smoked bone-in ham or a whole smoked turkey: both meal options come with two pan sides and a quart of gravy, feed 14 folks (with leftovers), and are available for $149.
There is also a meal featuring a smoked turkey breast is for $69; this meal feeds eight folks (with leftovers) and comes with two-quart sides and a pint of gravy. Due to limited supply, these holiday meals and meats are only available to order in-store or over the phone.
Hams, whole turkeys, and turkey breasts can be purchased independently as well, with hams and whole turkeys available for $79 and turkey breasts for $45. Just like the award-winning meats City Barbeque serves every day of the year, all of the joint’s mouthwatering holiday meats are smoked on-site over local hickory wood.
Mix and match meal components are hallmarks of the grocerant niche and City Barbeque serves a wide range of classic homemade sides—including sweet potato casserole, smashed potatoes and gravy, green beans with bacon, creamy mac & cheese, corn pudding, and more—available by the pint, quart, or pan. For those looking for something a little less traditional for their holiday table, City Barbeque serves up whole briskets and whole pork shoulders to carve at home; full-service holiday catering is also available for those who want to avoid the kitchen entirely.
