Boston Market makes cooking or catering easier than ever for those keeping an eye on their wallets this holiday season. According to Boston Market research, the average family spends $12.22 per person and more than six days planning and shopping to create a complete holiday meal. To help make this holiday season more affordable, the Denver-based company is once again offering traditional, holiday meal solutions starting at just $5.50 per person. In addition, Boston Market recently launched a new Holiday Tips page at bostonmarket.com, where festive foodies can find helpful tips, tricks and recipes to help with the hustle and bustle of the busiest time of the year.
“For more than 25 years, choosing Boston Market at the holidays has been an easy way to save time otherwise spent at the grocery store, cooking and cleaning,” said George Michel, CEO, Boston Market. “Our range of high quality holiday meals are made using time-honored recipes, so you can serve your family the delicious dishes they look forward to each year with the same confidence as if you made them yourself.”
Whether guests need an entire spread, a few sides, or just a place to dine out on Thanksgiving Day, Boston Market offers a variety of options from which to choose:
Heat & Serve Holiday Banquets
Starting at around $5.50 per person, hosts need only to heat and serve.
