58 ways restaurants are promoting Thanksgiving

More consumers turn to restaurants for holiday meal

Thanksgiving, celebrated this year on Nov. 23, centers around family and friends coming together to appreciate what they have over a full holiday spread. Restaurants are playing a big role in this tradition: National Restaurant Association research shows that nearly one in 10 adults plans to eat a Thanksgiving meal at a restaurant this year. And of those spending the holiday at home, more than one in 10 said they plan to pick up components of their meal from a restaurant. Operators can capitalize on this potential surge in business by giving customers what they want: prix-fixe meals, buffets, traditional or more creative Thanksgiving menu items, take-home catering and holiday-themed desserts.
