More than 14 million Americans will eat out this year on Thanksgiving, according to the Huffington Post.
A host can spend days planning the menu and purchasing ingredients, and then, when the big day comes, long hours in the kitchen. It can be a big hassle. So it makes sense why people would opt to have a restaurant do all the work for them.
