A ham and salad roll for lunch...

2 large slices of ham (or fresh BBQ chicken, tuna,
Or chicken schnitzel)
Lettuce
Carrot
Beetroot
Cheese
Red onion
Tomato
Your choice of dressing/sauce

Have done my math on what it costs me to make and what profit I want on it but wanted to compare that to what people would think is reasonable.

Any input would be fab!

Depends on where you are. Sydney CBD, $6.50ish. Small suburb shop - $4.50 - $5

More info: country town, no where else to get lunch .

Around 6-8 dollars.

Me personally, $4-5. (Im a bit of a cheap skate) But more realistically, I would expect to pay $7-8 which I think is a typical Subway price.

About $6.00.

I find that when you get a take away sandwhich/roll the price you pay is completely overinflated to what is actually costs to make it.

For any sandwhich that has meat in it of some description (especially schnitzel) you would be looking at paying $10+ from the places I have been to, but maybe I am just getting ripped off.

Will be interested to see what other pp's say.

ETA: Far out, yes I have been ripped off!! mad.gif

I would expect $6-8. I have paid more for less

I wouldn't pay the asking price as it's so over priced. I would rather go hungry and get myself something at home than buy a sandwich/roll out.

$5.50 to $6.00 for a ham and salad roll

I agree that a schnitzel and salad roll/ sandwich is generally more. Around the 8-11 dollar mark.

Our bakery does something similar to this, including cheese if you want it and charges $6.80 for ham or chicken, $6.50 for tuna or egg mayonnaise, and $6 for salad. Avocado is an extra 50c. This is in outer suburban Sydney.

The bakery near my workplace sells freshly baked rolls with ham and salad, chicken and salad etc for $4.50

Well worth a slight detour if I'm not running late for work.

#16 wesse

Posted 09 January 2013 - 05:58 PM

I would say about $8. depending on the freashness "look" of the roll and amount of product in the filling.

#17 Guest_Sunnycat_*

If its ham or tuna with salad probably $6-$8, if it's chicken schnitzel and salad $9-$11.

At my local shopping centre in Adelaide it costs $7-$8 for a meat and salad roll!

I work in Brisbane CBD and pay $9 - $11 (depending on exactly what I have in it) for a chicken salad sandwhich/roll/wrap.

I am in a country town and pay about 7.50 for a ham salad roll. They are very fresh and very full and oh so tasty so don't mind paying that much.

#21 Ally'smum

Posted 09 January 2013 - 06:07 PM

I paid $9.90 today...

#22 Cherubs

Posted 09 January 2013 - 06:07 PM

Yes OP don't you dare make a profit on it ;P bugger your rent, and bills.  

I think $6- 8 would be a reasonable price, I would probably pay more if it was on big country style bread.

#23 cesca

I wouldn't pay more than about $4 to $5 or so for a sandwich... if it's a sub then okay, maybe $6 or $7, but that's a bit bigger than a sandwich...?

I paid $4.50 for a huge yummy cheese and salad sandwich in a small regional town in NSW a couple of months ago. As I'm a cheapskate I first thought it was expensive, but once I saw it (the cafe owner made it in front of me, fresh) I thought it was good value.

But, in general, I wouldn't pay for a sandwich.  I'd be prepared and bring something from home.



#24 bryce's-mummy

Posted 09 January 2013 - 06:11 PM

As a consumer I think $6.50 for a roll is acceptable. And no more than $5.00 for a sandwich.

#25 darcswan

Posted 09 January 2013 - 06:13 PM

Note, I'm someone who spends about $10 on lunch every day.  I am not budget conscious and too lazy to make my own original.gif

Ham/chicken and salad sammie on normal bread - $6ish
Chicken schnitzel up to $8

In Sydney, there are several sandwich shops which do massive, dinner plate sized sandwiches for $10.  I'm happy to pay it as its at least 2 meals worth!  


Here's a picture to give an idea of scale:

Awesome.
