The Chiefs or Buccaneers will not be the only winner during Sunday’s Super Bowl game. It also will be a big day for pizza delivery companies.
“Football’s favorite Sunday is consistently one of Domino’s busiest delivery days of the year,” company spokeswoman Jenny Fouracre said. “Domino’s corporate and franchise team members prepare for this day, much like the final two football teams battling it out. It takes focus, practice, a great player lineup and extra hustle to come through on game day. Domino’s stores across the country have prepared by staffing up, ordering extra ingredients and practicing the art of precision pizza-making.”
According to the company:
- Domino’s typically sells about two million pizzas on football’s biggest game day, about 30 percent more than on a regular Sunday.
- The most popular pizza topping for the football event of the year is pepperoni.
- While Domino’s stores throughout Kansas City and Tampa will see high sales at the beginning of the game, and the city of the winning team likely will see higher sales at the end of the night.
- During last year’s game, Domino’s sold enough pizzas to stretch across about 6,000 football fields.
The American Pizza Community trade group expects sales to top the 12.5 million pizzas sold during the 2020 Super Bowl In addition, the National Chicken Council predicts a 2 percent increase in wing consumption. That would be a record.
Domino’s is committed to providing a safe, delicious, hot meal the way customers want, Fouracre said, whether through contactless carryout or delivery. Stores across the United States. also offer Domino’s Carside Delivery, which gives customers the option of staying in their vehicle while a team member delivers their order to them in the store’s parking lot, making for a convenient, contactless carryout experience.
Domino’s has also supported the pro-life cause across the nation. Just so ya know.
