Thanksgiving in a Box

A professionally prepared turkey dinner with all (or most of) the trimmings is reason to give thanks.

As Kris Kowalski Christiansen, COO of Kowalski’s markets, says, “Thanksgiving dinner should be a time for families to relax and spend time together, not time spent stressing in the kitchen over burnt turkey and lumpy mashed potatoes.”

Order in advance by phone or online and you can spend the holiday relaxing with family and friends instead of making frantic calls to the Butterball hotline. You might even play a board game or two.
