January 30, 2019

In early 2018 it was reported that the average American spends $70,000 on takeout and delivery in their lifetime…

Well now that number has jumped up to over $100,000 in a new survey by Vitagene. The emergence of food delivery services like DoorDash and Postmates have clearly made it easier for people to order out instead of cooking at home.

According to the survey, the average person in Charlotte, NC spends $165 per month on takeout, which comes to $118,000 in their lifetime. The crazy part? Charlotte is nowhere close to being one of the cities that spends the most on delivery and takeout! Here’s a look at the top 10:
