Fred Meyer today shared its customers’ favorite Thanksgiving side dishes ahead of one of the biggest food holidays of the year.
“We know families and friends make memories over food across many holidays,” said Jeffery Temple, Director of Corporate Affairs at Fred Meyer. “At Thanksgiving, we see so many customers seeking out ingredients to make meals their families have shared for generations. It’s so rewarding to be part of their dinner tables and play an important role in reliving favorite memories and making new ones.”
Fred Meyer expects Thanksgiving menus will be flush with potatoes, roasted veggies and cranberries this year. Favorite side dishes the grocer anticipates families will enjoy together this November in the Pacific Northwest include:
- Potatoes: over 18 varieties and in many forms such as mashed, sweet, baked, roasted, or in a casserole
- Roasted Veggies: root vegetables like onions, sweet potatoes, turnips, beets, radishes and carrots
- Cranberries: customers more often choose canned cranberry sauce over fresh cranberries.
To make these favorite side dishes, Fred Meyer expects to sell*,
- Over 239,000 cans of cranberry sauce
- Over 146,000 bags of fresh cranberries
- Over 2.5 million pounds of potatoes
- Over 700,000 pounds of sweet potatoes
In addition, Fred Meyer shares the company’s 2022 brand film, “Today’s Holiday Moments are Tomorrow’s Memories.” This short film introduces viewers to a Kroji character who is navigating the holiday season and remembering that the best memories are created over food with his family.
