Boston Market 20 Years Late but Welcome to Holiday Meal Season


Restaurants thrive during the holiday season.  Its quite simply people are out and about have even less time to cook so they don’t.  When it comes to Holiday meal offerings regular readers of this blog know that if there was ever a company the miss read what consumers wanted for a meal that they could pick-up or have delivered on during the Holiday season our Grocerant Guru® time after time has said that Boston Market missed the mark. 

Last year’s offerings were particularly disappointing to our Grocerant Guru®.  Looks as if they listened to him a bit more this year.  Boston Market has turned the corner and refocused on its core customer according to the Grocerant Guru®, who stated, “this renewed focus on the consumer will drive incremental return visits, top line sales and bottom-line profits.”

This year there is offering a variety of Thanksgiving meal options from $11.99 per person, prices may vary by market, starting today at all restaurants nationwide. Whether dining in-restaurant or celebrating at home, Boston Market has offerings to fit every family this holiday season.

Consumers will have a choice between the Hot & Ready-To-Serve meals, catering and a la carte offerings. The Hot & Ready-To-Serve meals include everything needed to serve between six and 12 people and can be picked up at any Boston Market restaurant the week of Thanksgiving. For those ready to feed a crowd, groups of 10 or more can cater a hot, buffet-style dinner or individually plated meals that can be delivered or picked up.
