A good lunch can make the difference between a dull day on the job and a great one. It can put you in a good mood for the rest of the day or provide that motivation to get through the morning, knowing you’ve got something tasty waiting for you.
At Parcel2Go, we realise the importance of a quality lunch for tradesmen. There are only so many dry cheese sandwiches you can eat before you’ll snap. That’s why we’ve put together a competition where tradesmen can win the ultimate lunch, delivered to your team on the job.
In order to find out what makes the ultimate tradesman lunch, we conducted some primary research out of curiosity and to provide some inspiration for the prize.
The Favourite Work Lunch of Tradesmen
Firstly, we asked tradesmen: ‘What is your favourite lunch when you are at work?’ A wide range of answers was supplied, from vague ‘homemade sandwiches’ and ‘leftovers’ to more specific ones such as a ‘smoked salmon and salad sandwich, then watermelon’ (presumably a slice and not the whole thing!).
The survey revealed that the favourite lunch of tradesmen was a sandwich, according to 28% of responses, with 21% answering with a ham and cheese sandwich. Easy to put together and filling, it’s a staple of the British diet. A jacket potato with a topping was the second most popular choice with 13% of the vote, followed by soup and bread with 12%.
Popular lunch choices include:
1. Ham & Cheese sandwich – 28%
2. Jacket Potato with a topping – 13%
3. Soup and bread – 12%
4. Salad with chicken or tuna- 11%
5. Pasty/pie- 5%
6. Pizza- 5%
7. Chicken and rice 4%
8. Burger and chips 4%
9. Pasta 3%
10. Sushi 2%
How Often do Tradesmen Get Lunch Delivered?
We also asked how often tradesmen get their lunch delivered to work on average. Of those that get food delivered to work, the majority admitted to getting it twice a week, while many also said just once. This could be as a start and/or end to the week treat in some cases. Quite a few people said three times a week as well, while not many answered with four or more times a week to receive food deliveries when on the job.
The younger generation is definitely keener (or lazier) to get food delivered at work. 11.1% of 18 to 24-year-olds said they get food delivered three times a week, compared to just 1.2% of those in the 55+ category.
