The Average Person Eats Take-Out 2,875 Times in Their Lifetime
I love swinging by a restaurant and grabbing food to eat at home. Apparently I’m not alone.
A new survey from Press Association out of England found that the average person eats take-out around 2,875 times in their life. Based on the 62 years you’re an adult between and 18 and 80, that means you eat take-out about 46 times a year.
The cost of all that food? Almost $27,000.
28% of people surveyed said they eat carryout about once every two weeks. 26% said weekly, 9% said twice a week, and 6% said three times a week or more.
The most popular reason for eating out was people not wanting to cook.
I think 2,875 times is actually a little low. That’s like eating out every night for eight years. All I know is I love Chinese Take-Out.
