For that extra dose of inspiration, here's a turkey day fun fact about how one company turned Thanksgiving leftovers into a profitable line of business.

From Failure to Fortune

This is a tail (pun intended) of how a Thanksgiving mistake led to one company’s fortune. In 1953, Swanson massively miscalculated the American appetite for Thanksgiving turkey, leaving the company with some 260 tons of frozen fowl sitting in ten refrigerated railroad cars. Faced with the possibility of these birds going truly foul, the company looked to flying food (you got it, pre-prepared airline trays) for inspiration. Swanson ordered 5,000 aluminum trays, and made traditional turkey dinners with corn-bread dressing and gravy, peas and sweet potatoes. It launched a “tray chic” marketing campaign and in the first year of production, sales took off and profits reached new heights as the company sold 10 million turkey dinners.

Now that you don't have to stress about Thanksgiving leftovers, you can start thinking about planning your holiday party. Don't worry, we have you covered there too. Just contact us at events@blueheroncatering.com for a quote.
