Taking the Box out of Box Lunches

I am sitting here writing a box lunch menu and seeing shaking my head at the price.  Do keep in mind this is a 4 star property but how much does a sandwich, potato salad, chips and brownie cost for goodness sakes.  Well let me tell you.  At this particular property $32.00 and don’t think for a second that includes a drink because it doesn’t.  I went to a comparable hotel before and asked them to give me a cost of a turkey sandwich.  They said it was $10.00 (and let me tell you something – their food cost on that was about $1.00 tops)  Chips $3.25, Cookie $3.00, Cole Slaw, $3.50 and Whole Fruit $3.25 = which gives us a total of $23.00 – add in another buck for the cost of the box and that takes us up to $24.00 – So where do you folks get $32.00 for a VERY MEDIOCRE BORING BOX LUNCH?
 
My suggestion if you are going to do a box lunch at this price point at least put some thought into it – it won’t cost you any more money to put a candy bar into the box instead of a cookie, trail mix instead of a piece of whole fruit which no one will eat or a wedge of cheese and crackers and last do a wrap sandwich instead of a bread sandwich.  At least earn your money in making this always boring – lunch – boring with the same old.
