AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) -  Sunday has not only been a big night for football fans, but for local pizza deliveries and restaurants as well. Super Bowl Sunday is one of the biggest days of the year for pizza deliveries, restaurants, and bars.

Millions of dollars are spent nation wide during the Super Bowl and the money spent on pizza and wings alone has local pizzerias excited.

Giovanni's Pizza and Calzone has been open in Amarillo for four years and the Super Bowl continues to be their biggest day for pizza deliveries all year.

"Busy days like this really helps our revenue and really helps us spread our name out there too," said Giovanni's pizza delivery driver Daniel Hall.

Hall expects to deliver a few hundred pizzas and wings, with an increase in sales of about 50%. 

"Everyone's calling in for orders, some people call ahead," said Hall.  

Pizza and the Super Bowl are like turkeys and Thanksgiving -- something hall says takes at least a week to prepare for. 

"We come in early to prep our dough, cheese, and vegetables," said Hall. "We keep a little more staff than normal and we make sure we're fully prepared for whatever is going to come hit us." 

It's a similar situation for 7 Bar & Grill. They expect a 20% increase in sales. Kitchen manager Danny Montoya says their big TV's and wings attract people to their restaurant during the Super Bowl. 

"So we can get our product out there," said Montoya. "Just come out and enjoy us. You know, support your local restaurants and not just us but any local restaurants in Amarillo."
