I did it! I managed to spend $755 at Boston Market.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for being such sports for participating.
So what have I learned from this experience?
It takes a long time for one person to spend $750 at Boston Market, even when you're sharing it with others.
People love free food.
People really do win viral video contests.
This was fun!
Things I would have liked to have done:
Ask a stranger on the line if they'd like a free meal.
Ask a homeless or needy person on the street if they would like to join me for lunch.
Things that would make the Boston Market experience better:
Real silverware! If it's home cooked goodness you want, then how about a real fork and knife?
Healthier sides. True, without mashed potatoes and stuffing, it's just not a meal, but the steamed veggies and string beans are really the only health conscious options to choose from.
More salads. There are only 2 salads to choose from – the 'Chopped' and the…. I can't even remember. The chopped salad was pretty good though!
More specials. In over a year there were no real changes or new offerings on the menu. This was a bit disappointing when you've been there over 30 times in the last year.
Ideas for the future if Boston Market is interested:
1000meals.com (yes, I bought it):
One hundred is child's play. Let's do one thousand! How?
Idea 1: Feed the homeless
Idea 2: National Tour
When I have some extra time I will be adding some final graphs to the site. Until then, happy holidays!
Sean is in town this month visiting from his new home in Denmark. After a night of drinks at Will's we decided a Sunday afternoon Boston Market lunch would be the perfect hang over cure. We took a stroll over to local store #546, snapped some photos and ate.
