More People Getting Catered Thanksgiving Meal


KENNEWICK, Wash. -- Chefs at the Country Gentleman restaurant in Kennewick say their sales of prepared Thanksgiving meals are way up from last year.

They say last year they only sold about 14 complete meals, but this year they'll dish up more than 50. Workers at Country Gentleman believe getting your holiday meal catered is a rising trend because people want less hassle and more time to spend with family.

Between catered meals and meals served at the restaurant, chefs estimate they'll make enough food to serve 800 to 1,000 people on Thanksgiving.
