With that being said, if you’re a pub, grill, sports bar, pizza shop, or another type of food service venue, you should be prepared for an influx of customers and orders on February 3.

So how can you best prepare for a profitable (but hectic) Super Bowl Sunday at your business?  Check out a few fun tips below!


Offer Specials 

Diners are always looking for good food deals, especially when it comes to special occasions, holidays, or sporting events. It is important to differentiate yourself from the local competition by offering Super Bowl Specials on highly sought after game-day treats like wings, pizza, or BEER.

BOGO – Buy One Get One Free

With a group of friends deciding the best place to watch the game, offering a two-for-one discount on appetizers or drinks is sure to attract them your way. Customers want good food and good beer at a fair price.

Discounted Pitchers

As mentioned above, 50 million cases of beer are consumed during game time, so why wouldn’t your business offer beer specials for patrons? Especially for the big groups. A sure way to attract and retain Super Bowl viewers throughout the night!

Be Ready With Takeout or Delivery Options

A number of people also prefer to watch the game from their very own couch at home. Many even host parties and invite family and friends over to enjoy the Super Bowl. When thats the case they’re looking for affordable food and drink options to feed their large crowds. This is where popular apps such as wings and pizzas, when paired with liter sodas, can be a big score for the Super Bowl festivity.
