Not everyone makes it home for the holidays. Sometimes folks are just stuck working to make ends meet, even if that means missing out on a Thanksgiving meal. It looks like Boston Market is taking advantage of this opportunity by catering to anyone scheduled to work on Turkey Day.
The fast-casual restaurant chain that specializes in comfort meals is thriving from workers stuck working shifts during the Thanksgiving season. Boston Market told CNN it provided meals for 362,000 people working during the holiday in 2013. The company caters to folks working jobs that go on 365 days of the year, such as cops, nurses, and utility guys and gals.
Serving dishes like turkey, chicken, meatloaf, stuffing and mashed potatoes, Boston Market is pretty much the closest thing to a Thanksgiving-themed restaurant. Makes sense.
It appears that retailers opening early on Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday are to thank for Boston Market’s increase in business. According to the company, it hires about 2,000 seasonal workers from Thanksgiving through Christmas.
