Dickey's Barbecue Pit Secures Whole-roasted and Cajun-fried Turkeys for Thanksgiving Despite Nationwide ShortageDickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. is vigorously preparing for Thanksgiving, so you don’t have to. Last year, according to the National Restaurant Association, over 33 million Americans relied on restaurants for at least a part of their Thanksgiving meal. Dickey’s sold 400,000 pounds of holiday turkeys and hams nationwide in 2014 and that number is projected to increase by more than 20% this year.
With the recent bird flu outbreak, many Americans have supply concerns when it comes to their holiday turkey. Some chains have even pulled turkey from their menus nationwide due to the shortage leading to increased costs. The national barbecue chain worked to secure its holiday supply early, prior to the shortage, which is just another way Dickey’s prepares for the holiday season so you don’t have to. Guests can rely on Dickey’s Barbecue Pit to provide holiday meats and complete feasts for an affordable and delicious holiday celebration.
Dickey’s makes it easy to host a hassle-free holiday gathering through easy and convenient online ordering. Cajun fried and smoked turkeys, barbecue honey hams and full holiday feasts are available through Dickey’s online ordering option until the day before Thanksgiving. The full holiday feast includes traditional cornbread dressing and gravy, baked potato casserole, green beans with bacon and Dickey’s signature buttery rolls. The holiday feast feeds 10 – 12 people and is sure to be a hit for any Thanksgiving get-together. Guests who are registered for the company’s loyalty program, the Big Yellow Cup Club, will receive special holiday discounts.
“We are proud to serve quality holiday feasts to our guests who love Dickey’s signature slow-smoked meats and homestyle sides,” said Roland Dickey, Jr., CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “With the recent concern over the national turkey supply, Dickey’s has worked to ensure plenty of quality holiday meats for our guests’ celebrations. We’re prepared for the holiday season and look forward to setting a new record with holiday sales this year.”
