Geneva...Leader of the 'Club'
New York came in at number 13 of the global cities studied for the second year in a row; however, the city was the most expensive amongst additional U.S. cities surveyed at an average of $17.99. The least expensive city in the U.S. was Orlando at $10.68, comparable to 26th globally-ranked Buenos Aires ($10.37).

Of note, the locally-relevant Po'Boy sandwich was used to obtain average prices for New Orleans.
Gastronomic hub, Paris, held on to the number two spot globally with a new average of $29.36, followed by Helsinki (previously number 11) which knocked Oslo out of the top three with $24.35 following an increase on the 2013 average cost in the Finnish capital.
India's New Delhi remained the cheapest destination for a Club Sandwich, with an average of just $8.78, although several other holiday favorites also appeared within the $10 threshold, including Mexico City ($9.78) and Buenos Aires ($10.37). Meanwhile, Sydney experienced the greatest decrease in its Club Sandwich price, falling from $20.53 in 2013 to $16.93 in 2014.
