If the whole crew could agree on one option or the other, I would go with their prefrence to make them happy. Its one of those little things to set you apart from the competition and help on retention. 1. I'll pay for lunch (time not the big mac like Tony Said) if we grab it and go, or take 10 or 15 minutes to scarf it down, but no longer than that. 2. They could take a 30 or 45 minute real break somewhere and eat, but they have to punch out. This will make it look like I'm willing to take their unput and make them happy to work with me, but it will also discourage the long lunchbreaks because they won't make as much $$. I don't like long lunchbreaks myself because if I relax and eat a meal, I don't feel like moving when its time to get out of the chair and hit the road again. I think you should always give choices for different things like this, but always make the answer you want, the better option and it will work for you in more ways than one.
