Favorite Thing About Turkey Talking:
“I love being able to take part in the holiday meals and traditions of families across the country. I can ease the anxieties of a first-time cook or help families out of a real turkey predicament! It’s a great feeling to know I’m making a difference for people.”
Most Memorable Call:
While attending a prayer service at her local church, a young woman was distracted with anxiety over the upcoming Thanksgiving meal preparations. Upon exiting the chapel, she was thrilled to see the Butterball Turkey Talk-Line number on the lobby bulletin board. When the woman returned home, she immediately called the Talk-Line and got advice from Marjorie on preparing a last-minute dinner. After Marjorie suggested purchasing a Butterball Fully Cooked Turkey for a no-fuss feast, the woman thanked Butterball for answering her prayers!
