While Thanksgiving is a time of year where we look forward to yummy food, friends and family (and in the South—football), there’s no denying that Thanksgiving cooking can eat into family time and create a lot of mess.
If you’re looking to support a locally-owned business + still enjoy your favorites, check out Kemp’s Kitchen, a community treasure. Here are five reasons why you should choose Kemp’s for your holiday meal.
1. The convenience
Getting up at 4AM to put the turkey in the oven is a thing of the past. Not only can you secure your turkey (even with a turkey shortage) but you can get ALL the fixins, too.
With Kemp’s Thanksgiving special, you’ll get to sit back, relax and NOT have the do the dishes. That means more football watching time for you!
2. The variety
This year, they’re offering their Thanksgiving special, consisting of:
- A pie of your choice
- Cranberry Sauce
- Green Bean Casserole
- Sweet Potato Casserole
—all for $165. Talk about a deal! This feeds up to 10 people—perfect to share with your extended family or for you to enjoy leftovers.
3. The Kemp’s team
The team is a big part of the Kemp’s culture and are truly what makes Kemp’s the way it is. The catering team works hard to cook and pack every single catering order in their 9,000 square foot Gardendale location. Owner Brian Kemp is even rumored to deliver the food on occasion.
Plus, they’ll even give you a free tasting so you can be sure you’re sure to impress this holiday season.
4. You’ll be supporting a local business
Kemp’s Kitchen is locally owned! While most people know that, some don’t know that restaurants like Ironstone Pizza and Alpha Charlie Grill are also owned by the Kemp family.
As food costs and restaurant expenses have increased over this past year, it’s important to show local businesses some love for the holidays and beyond. Plus, big things are on the horizon for Kemp’s, so the more we support, the more people can enjoy the Kemp’s experience.
5. It’s just plain good food—not JUST for the holidays
While holiday catering might be what you’re after, Kemp’s caters for any time of year. Whether you’re hosting a corporate function, birthday party, or celebrating just because, Kemp’s has just what ya need.
Their catering slogan “call us once, love us forever” rings true with their boxed lunches, salads, meat and threes and pastry bundles. It’s truly a question of what CAN’T Kemp’s do. Make sure you check out their general catering offers to start planning your next party.
