How many square feet of pizza is eaten in the US each year?27 Answers
800 billion Sq.ft
A pizza is roughly 1 sqft. If the average american eats 1/3 of a pizza and eats pizza 3 times a month, that would mean 12sqft a year. Times 200M americans that gives you 2.4 billion sqft.
Sorry, i must be stupid. I didn´t know pizza were made of feet.
These market estimation questions are pretty common in IB and consulting; so this one is not an oddball. The critical part is the logical reasoning used to estimate rather than how accurate you are. Try these: how many diapers used everyday in Canada how many commercial planes are currently flying in US air space
All of them.
Pizza is not served in square feet in the U.S.
If i know & see it right, Pizza's are not square in shape so sq feet is not the correct UOM (Unit of measure). Pl correct ur question in terms of circle/diameter/radius & I shall revert with the answer. Trust your question is answered.
Unless i am going for a pizza delivery or pizza marketting job which Goldmann Sachs is not, i would blatantly say would either of us care?
How the hell would I know ? Let me do some research and get back to you on it.
MOST PIZZA IS SEVED IN THE SHAPE OF TRIANGLE (FOR A SLICE) OR IN THE SHAPE OF A CIRCLE - NEED TO DO SOME RESERACH AND THEN SOME MATH. LET ME GET BACK TO YOU ABOUT IT.
Way to much lousy square feet - that's for sure. Hungry ? What's your favorite pizza there Bossman ? You buy - I'll fly. Whadya say ?
pie r squared
Assume average pizza is 16", or 8" radius. That is 0.66 feet. Square it and mulitply by 3.1 to about (0.4)*3.1 = 1.2 ft^2. Assume 100 million families in US eating one pizza 10 times a year (this is the weakest assumption) = 100,000,000*10*1.2 = 1.2 billion square feet of pizza, +-0.3 billion.

150 million square feet - Math is not the answer to your question - Google is. http://bit.ly/MoP5xR
Well, I consume about 400 square ft by myself so...
There are none, because I was live at Indonesia
If I wanted the job, I'd say I would research the answer directly. If not found, I would use whatever statistics I can find. An example would be: (# of pizza's sold) times (average sq feet per pizza) times (average ratio of pizza eaten vs thrown away) If I didn't want the job, I'd say "I'm going to research this, then leave for the day, score some good acid, return 24 hours later and make up a number".
Around 30 Million in India
The answer is none. Pizza is sold by volume. The correct unit of measure for volume is cubic feet, not square feet. You cannot eat something that has no volume.
Pizza eaters population * size of pizza in square feet
Answer is zero, or at least it can't be answered. Question said "US" - not U.S. US is not a measurable subject (whose US?) Question did not ask United States (U.S.) because there was no punctuation marks in their subject US.
There's about 320m people in the US who live to about age 80. That means there are 4 million people at each age. I would say prime pizza years are about age 10 through age 60, which is a range of 50 years, meaning about 200 million people eat pizza regularly. I assume that people, on average, eat pizza twice a month, meaning that there are 200m * 24 = 4.8 billion instance of pizza eating every year. The service size for pizza is about a quarter of a pie, a pie has a diameter of about 2 feet, meaning pi/4 or about 0.75 square feet of pizza are eaten per sitting. The area of pizza eaten in the US every year is about 4.8b * 0.75 = about 3.75 billion square feet. According to this website, 3 billion pizzas are sold every year in the US. http://www.statisticbrain.com/pizza-statistics/ I might be off by a factor of 3 or so in my answer depending on the average size of a pizza, but I am pretty close all things considered. That is how you answer these questions, people.
