A number of brands took to offering meal kits earlier this year in a bid to support consumers spending more time at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic and now that same attention to convenience is being expanded by Cardenas Markets.
The Hispanic grocer is offering patrons five fully prepared meal options for them to order this holiday season that can feed up to 12 people. This includes the Turkey Dinner, Rib Dinner, Spiral Ham Dinner and the Almond Pork Loin Dinner, which can be ordered ready-to-heat or heated at an additional charge.
Cardenas Markets Chief Marketing Officer Adam Salgado spoke on the new meal offerings saying, "Thanksgiving is the time to count your blessings and spend time with loved ones. We are 100% committed to providing delicious meal options so our customers can spend more time with their loved ones and less time cooking this holiday season.”
