If you’re not in the mood for a burger and a drink, you can grab a pita in America for under $2.99, according to a recent survey of the country’s restaurants by Restaurant Brands International.
A similar survey conducted by the Associated Press in January found that the average American diner spends $4.15 on a sandwich, which translates to a total price of $2,967 for a 2-inch bag.
This week, Restaurant Brands is partnering with The New York Times to launch a new digital survey that will ask respondents about their sandwich preferences and offer a $100 voucher for their next meal, or $100 gift card to any local grocery store.
“As Americans become more urban and more connected, it’s a time when the value of a sandwich has increased dramatically,” says Jeff Smith, CEO of Restaurant Brands, in a press release.
“In the past, a sandwich would have been something you bought at a drive-thru and went home with, or it was something you ate for breakfast, but now it’s part of the American meal.”
The survey will be available on Wednesday at the following locations: The Pita Hut, The French Laundry, Taco Bell, and Burger King.
For the next two weeks, the survey will also be available at all the restaurants participating in the survey: The Italian, The Greek, and The Greek Pub.
If you can’t make it to any of the restaurants, you may want to wait for a free sample to be sent out.
