With snow falling outside and a familiar chill in the air, it feels fitting that Thanksgiving is just a few days away! The anticipation of preparing for the holiday feels so exciting, but it can be a little bit exhausting too. From braving the busy grocery stores, to getting the house ready for guests, it’s easy to get distracted from the true reason for the season.

Here at Elsmere, we wanted to take a moment to express how thankful we are for our customers, for our new Portland location, and for the team of loving, caring people in our community.

To get an inside look at the attitude of gratitude at Elsmere, we asked a few of our team members what they’re most thankful for this holiday season. Here are their responses!

From all of us at Elsmere BBQ, have a happy and safe Thanksgiving!
