Which food chains do you think appear most on employee expense reports? Think it over for a minute …
Here are the top five, according to a report released by travel and expense management company Certify:
- Starbucks (the average bill size was $7.54)
- McDonald’s ($6.73)
- Subway ($11.88)
- Panera Bread ($19)
- Burger King ($8.45)
Notice a trend? They’re all fast food chains.
And that leads to another question: Why is fast food so popular among business travelers?
- They want to eat on the go.
- Long work hours make the thought of getting a quick meal — thus increasing their free time — more appealing.
- Fast food chains tend to be open earlier and stay open longer, catering to the early hours and late nights put in by business travelers.
