THANKSGIVING SOLVED: Restaurant chain offers 2 ways to dine on holiday


Bob Evans Restaurants has unveiled the chain’s Thanksgiving plans, and it’s offering to cook your holiday dinner whether you eat it at your place or theirs.

To eat at home, Bob Evans is preparing what it calls the “Thanksgiving Farmhouse Feast” – a fully-cooked, heat-and-serve meal for eight people for $109.99. The special dinner includes Bob Evans’ roasted whole boneless turkey breast, sliced hickory-smoked ham, bread-and-celery dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, sweet corn, green beans with ham, macaroni & cheese, cranberry relish, rolls, a whole apple pie, a whole pumpkin pie with whipped topping, and a loaf of pumpkin bread.

From now through Nov. 22, customers can can place orders online at www.BobEvans.com, or by phone, or in person inside a Bob Evans restaurant. They can then pick up, reheat and serve the meal, rather than spending hours researching recipes, creating grocery lists, and working on meal prep, Bob Evans officials said.

According to a release from the restaurant chain, buying the “Farmhouse Feast” will actually save nearly half the cost of the holiday meal, in addition to saving time. That’s because research conducted by the restaurant chain showed that consumers, on average, will spend nearly $200 and 15 hours this year preparing a full Thanksgiving meal from scratch, using fresh ingredients, for eight people.

“Thanksgiving is a time that’s meant to be spent with family and friends, building memories around the dining room table over great-tasting food,” Saed Mohseni, president and CEO of Bob Evans Farms, Inc., said in a release. “We take pride in providing quality, homestyle holiday dishes that our guests are looking to include on their Thanksgiving tables and we’re thrilled to offer guests a complete meal option at such a great value. This allows hosts to spend less time in the kitchen and more time around the table with the ones they love most.”
