Recode has uncovered a fascinating statistic: almost two out of three Americans say they buy their food at grocery stores.
That’s according to a survey by the Consumer Federation of America.
And we have the numbers: about 60 percent of American adults say they eat out at least once a week, and roughly a quarter of those eat at least three meals a day.
The numbers are starkly different from the typical American diet: about half of Americans say that they eat at home, and about 40 percent eat at work.
What is it about the grocery store that makes it so appealing?
There are a few things that might explain why Americans are eating out at home.
The number of people who do not eat at the grocery chain is increasing at a rate of about 3 percent per year, the CFA said in a statement.
And the food we buy is often cheaper than the food people in the grocery stores are buying.
And so a lot of people are actually saving money, in terms of purchasing their food on their own.
So maybe that’s one reason people are ordering at home more often.
Consumers are also more likely to shop at home if they have a home delivery service, the group said.
And for some consumers, buying their food online is also more appealing, as they can get their groceries from the convenience store and save money at the same time.
So the next time you go to the grocery, be sure to do it in person.
