Sandwiches in a jam, thanks to recession

15 February 2011

80% of employees think the quality of sandwiches at their business meetings has fallen, according to a recent survey conducted by office design company Maris Interiors

Only 4% questioned felt that the quality of sandwiches had improved over the last five years, with 16% noticing no change.

The average cost of sandwiches per person at meetings currently stands a miserly £3.80. When the survey was first conducted in 2006, the average cost was just under £6 per person.

Popular sandwiches back in 2006 included ‘crayfish and avocado’ and ‘chicken teriyaki’ – but today ‘cheese and pickle’ and ‘tuna and sweet corn’ featured much more heavily in the survey.

Maris Interiors’ Chairman Michael Howard said “It’s a sign of these austere times that companies are spending much less on sandwiches in the boardroom. It’s certainly a sensible way to cut costs, but be careful not to overdo it: you won’t impress a client with jam sandwiches!”
