14 million people going out to Thanksgiving dinner

Nation's Restaurant News, which puts a happy spin on all things dining out, estimates that 14 million people will go out to dinner for Thanksgiving.

Eating in restaurants or bringing in takeout on Thanksgiving is “becoming part of the collective consciousness,” Sara Bittorf, chief brand officer for Boston Market, told NRN. “The holiday is not about the food you eat as much as getting together with family and friends. We feel like our mission is to help simplify life for our guests.”
