Americans are busier than ever; between school, work, sports and after-school activities; families barely get to see each other throughout the week and rarely have time to sit down for a family meal. A new survey from Carrabba’s Italian Grill, conducted by Wakefield Research, found that while 87% of Americans count "eating meals as a family" among their most cherished family memories, over half (53%) wish that they had more time to have family meals.
