May 4, 2011, HOUSTON -- Should the “Big Apple” be renamed the “Big Orange”? According to the Simply Orange® brunch survey, an estimated 41 million Americans* believe that New York City should be named the “Brunch Capital of the United States”1 , and 68 percent of those surveyed agree orange juice should be the official juice of brunch.
The meal universally recognized and embraced for its laid back, family-friendly atmosphere has made a name for itself in the Empire State. Conducted by Kelton Research in March 2011, the Simply Orange brunch survey shows that New York City’s brunch culture trumps all other bustling metropolises, including cities such as San Francisco, Los Angeles and Chicago.
A glass of orange juice lies at the heart of this meal for many Americans, especially in the Northeast. Of those surveyed, 70 percent of Northeasterners, more than any other region, feel that orange juice should be the official drink of brunch.
“Brunch really isn’t complete without orange juice, and the fresh-squeezed taste of Simply Orange is the perfect complement to any brunch. And now Americans have spoken, telling us that orange juice is the top juice choice during their favorite in-between meal,” said Allison Barrett, Group Marketing Director for Simply Orange. “We also found that where you brunch is important, too. Whether you’re a local or just visiting ‘the city that never sleeps,’ brunch is an integral element to enjoying New York City.”
Faced with competition from large cities across the United States, New York City prevailed as the place most associate with brunch. Nearly half (46 percent) of those surveyed indicated that New Yorkers take brunch more seriously than those in any other city – double the combined amount of those who voted for San Francisco (13 percent) or Los Angeles (10 percent). In addition, 44 percent of Americans attest that when visiting New York, brunch would be an important part of the experience there.
