You may think that hitting up a “quick service” restaurant will save you big money, but that’s not the case with these few chains!
If you’re eating at a sit-down restaurant chain like Chili’s or Applebee’s, you might expect to pay more than if you ate at, McDonald’s or Subway. But, that’s not always the case, especially at Panera Bread.
A new study by Certify took a look at the most-frequently expensed restaurants and how much business travelers spend there. Panera was the third-most popular chain, behind Starbucks (which is far and away the top breakfast spot) and McDonald’s. But unlike the average $11.55 tab at Starbucks and $8.75 at McDonald’s, Panera tips the scale with an average cost of…$39.52!
Woah. So next time you want a half-soup, half-salad combo, just careful of how much you’re really spending!
