Boston Market CEO talks Thanksgiving turkey (and the numbers are absurd) [View all]

Are you ditching the home cooked meal and eating out this Thanksgiving? Donít feel guilty, because youíre not alone. Boston Market plans to serve one million people this Thanksgiving Day (thatís about 400% higher than a normal Thursday). The fast casual restaurant chain has experienced a nearly 100% increase in Thanksgiving sales over the past five years.

All 453 of its restaurants nationwide, excluding food court locations, will be open on Thanksgiving Day -- a sign of the shifting tastes of American consumers.

Boston Market isnít the only restaurant chain keeping its doors open on Thanksgiving. Bob Evans Farms, Cracker Barrel, Golden Corral, Ruby Tuesday and Waffle House are also taking advantage of the increasing number of Americans choosing to eat out.

For the first time this year, Americans are spending more money dining out than on buying groceries, according to the Department of Commerce. And with a surge in two-income households, even the tradition of an entirely homemade Thanksgiving meal may have fallen by the wayside.


Waffle House?!
