Guide to Getting Great Aurelio’s Pizza for Sunday’s Big Game Day
This Sunday, which is famous for the biggest football matchup in sports, is renowned for another biggest day milestone. More pizza is consumed for the Big Game in America than on any other day of the year. The National Restaurant Association estimates that 48 million Americans - 1 in 8 - will order takeout or delivery food from a restaurant while watching Sunday's game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens. And, 12 million more are expected to visit a restaurant or bar to watch it. What will they be eating? Pizza.
“We gear up for this one day the same way the teams are gearing up. Intense preparation. We have more staff and more drivers from 3:30pm until close,” said Kirk Mauriello, Director of Franchising, Aurelio’s Pizza. “Pizza orders come in fast and furious. Every single one has to be perfect and delivered on time. We know we’re part of the game day experience for our customers. We want everything about it to be great.”
Why the pizza popularity? Beyond tradition, pizza is delicious, filling and hassle-free. Who wants to cook when they could be watching the game? It’s not just an increase in pizza sales that Aurelio’s sees on this one day; it’s an increase in catering, too.
