Depends on the size of the bunches and how you build your box. If you use a lettuce base, you'll need less parsley than if you build a 100% parsley box.

I pick up a parsley bag from Restaurant Depot with 10 good sized bunches and usually average two bunches per box. Now with the smaller bunches from the local grocery store, I may easily power through 3 bunched per box.

For 4 boxes, we seem to average 5 or 6 bunches in total, depending on the size of the bunches.

I like to have a least 10 bunches. There are times I have only used 4-5 bunches for all 4 boxes. On average it take 8 bunches, but there are times I have had to use all ten and wished I had more.

It really depends on the quality and how sandy/dirty the parsley is.

The case we bought is already spoken for. If you know anybody else cooking in Austin that you could split a case with, the HEB at Brodie and William Canon will hold it in their reefer for you. Just call the main number and ask for the produce manager and tell them what you need.

I've been allocating 1.5 bunches per box ... 4 boxes = 6 good bunches...I have noticed quite a difference in the colors / etc. so I am now digging through the pile at the market looking for the ones with the best "bush" . I always went for good bush.

What Scottie said - we usually buy 2.5 big bunches per box and always have left over. Better to have some $.59 bunches of parsley left over for another team to borrow or rebuild a dropped box than to have too little. It's a small amount of money to be overprepared in the grand scheme of things.
