EUGENE, Ore. - Super Bowl Sunday is the busiest day of the year for many pizzerias, serving up the perfect game day grub for football parties across the nation.
"There's something about football and pizza,” said Andrew Ratelle of Little Caesars. “When they come together it's a match made in heaven."
Food industry experts said that nearly 50 million Americans ordered takeout for the 2013 Super Bowl. Around 60 percent of those orders were for pizza.
"My boss says that on average, we do about a day's worth of business in a couple of hours,” Ratelle said.
Sara Goad, the manager of a Domino's Pizza, said this is her 17th Super Bowl working at a pizza joint.
“People will order 10, 15, 20 pizzas for one order. I plan a lot ahead of time. I have a lot of great employees to help me out,” said Goad.
At Track Town Pizza, employee Alan Berg said they have more staff come in to meet demands.
"We'll kind of move around like worker bees. The buzzing will stop a few hours after the Super Bowl,” Berg said.
