Unless it has a half rack of pork ribs on it. a Salad has no reason to be worth $12

12$ for some salad sounds pretty expensive to me as we have 1$ salads here

Good Nutrition costs money. If you just needed calories, a $3 bag of chips has more calories than you need in a day.
Fast foods can be sold cheap because much of the food is not fresh, high in preservatives, and low in nutrition value.
If good salad joints become "affordable" only by mass producing and cooking things way in advanced, the food is no longer fresh.

Wait, I'm confused. Why the first person said it's only $613 for 365 days if it's $12.50/salad?

People are idiots. Why would you spend that money on the daily basis when you can buy ingredients and MAKE IT YOURSELF. It's not that hard. It doesn't take a ton of time or some extra skills.

Yall laughing at sweetgreen haven't tried their warm chicken parm... And no, it's NOT that easy to put it together yourself. You don't eat the salad everyday & your ingredients can't stay fresh for several days. You don't have all the ingredients to make multiple toppings. You pay a premium for a fresher, more substantial, and more gourmet salad.
