Visa Survey Shows Americans Who Eat Lunch Out Spend $936 Per Year:
Men outspend women on a weekly basis by 44%
A survey by Visa shows that Americans go out to eat for lunch, an average of nearly twice a week and spend $10 per outing. That works out to an average of $18 per week or $936 per year. Men both outspent women at the lunch counter and were also more likely to eat lunch out. They outspend women on a weekly basis by 44%. Of those that eat lunch out, women spend an average of just under $15 per week and men spend about $21.
Shockingly, 1% of people spend more than $50 per lunch or close to $5,000 a year. On the other end of spectrum, 30% of respondents said that they didn’t buy lunch out at all.
