Supersize Me

With over 37% of all Americans being obese, it’s no surprise that the stigma of being overweight is following people to their graves.
Casket manufacturers have reported an increase in requests for extra large sized coffins!
The standard coffin is 24”-27”wide. Orders for double wide styles which measure 52”and can accommodate up to 1,000 pounds are on the rise. The additional space can cost up to $4000 extra.

With obesity being a major morbidity cause, casket manufacturers can expect a boom to business, if we can’t get this health issue under control.
