If you're pinched for time this Thanksgiving, there are several chains that will prepare whole turkeys for you.

Here’s a look at the different major restaurant chains that serve up Thanksgiving turkeys.


Among those chains who sell the whole turkey, Popeyes is one of the most famous. Their Cajun spiced turkeys are slow-roasted and then flash-fried for crispy skin. They weigh about 10-14 pounds, cost roughly $50 each and can be picked up the week of Thanksgiving or day of.
