Lunch loosing popularity

During the weekday lunch hours, it’s more common to see people sitting at their desks than in a comfy booth these days. Going out for lunch is a dying tradition, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Americans sat down to grab lunch 433 million fewer times last year. That comes out to a $3.2 billion loss in business for restaurants, according to research firm the NPD Group.

I believe it. With all these 3rd party delivery services, why go stand in line somewhere or drive around looking for a place that’s not packed during the lunch peak hours plus by working thru lunch and eating at your desk, you can leave 30-60 mins earlier and miss rush hour traffic often times.
