    I ask my men to bring lunch every day. I will stop for something for myself or stop home to eat. I will buy lunch for them on some Saturdays, usually pizza or Chinese.

    It can get a little expensive, but I am solo, and think about how many times that you have picked up an extra clean up while waiting for your sandwich, cuz someone saw your truck in the lot.

    We will do the same thing by eating from job to job. Sure saves a lot of time and money.

    Pack a lunch. Depending on the area we are in, there maynot be any fast food places, only high class places. PLUS I dont want to go somewhere new where the crew has never been, only because everyones stomach acts different, I dont want them getting sick, or FARTING the ENTIRE rest of the day. So they pack a lunch since its cheaper, eaiser, and they make what they want, so obvisouly, hopefully they wouldnt make themselves sick.

    The only consideration I have for packing lunch is money, but I usually don't.
    Wawa / Sheetz, Subway, McD's and Tacobell's dollar stuff, but I also like the mom & pop places.
