The American Pizza Community Gives Tips to Prepare for Busy Day 

Washington, D.C., February 1, 2016 – Pizza operators around the country anticipate one of the busiest pizza-ordering days of the year on Sunday for Super Bowl 50  when thousands of hungry football fans place their orders.  In fact, Super Bowl Sunday is one of the top five busiest days according to the American Pizza Community (APC), a coalition which represents nearly 73,000 pizzerias around the country.

“Our teams are ready to tackle the big rush coming up this week, and are excited for the opportunity to deliver a great game day meal to millions of football fans,” said Lynn Liddle, Chairperson of the American Pizza Community. 

Despite being a busy day for those who work in the industry, pizza operators love Super Bowl Sunday because it showcases why Americans turn to pizza so frequently to mark celebratory occasions:  countless fresh ingredients, customized ordering for big gatherings, an oven-baked, hot meal – and, the convenience of having it made for you and your group!

To ensure that your game day party scores big, here are a few helpful hints: 

  • Check for promotions ahead of time.  Many pizza stores are offering game-day specials. Check them out ahead of time, as these may be quicker for the pizza stores to make than customized orders. 
  • Order online!  Nearly all pizza stores offer online ordering or have mobile apps to track your order; and with phone lines likely to be busier than usual, placing an online order may save time. 
  • See if your pizza store allows timed orders. Scheduling your order for a specific time is another convenience offered by many pizza companies, especially those who offer digital ordering platforms.  
  • Choose carry-out as an option. If you’re planning to order pizza before the tip-off, choose carry out as an option.
