It's the biggest pizza consumption day in America.... More than six million pizzas nationwide are expected to be eaten on Super Bowl Sunday.
Let's put it into perspective... This Sunday, nationwide, Pizza Hut is expecting to make enough pizzas to cover 50 football fields. It's the kind of competition that has locally owned 575 Pizzeria hoping this Sunday will help them rake in the dough. Owner Brian Kelleher says, "We're hoping this Sunday the phones are ringing off the hook." General Manager Maressa Bailey agrees. "It's hard being a small business, especially in a place with so much competition. I mean every time your turn around there's a Pizza Hut commercial." That's exactly why for the first time ever they are opening this Sunday, a day they are usually closed. Its all in hopes of attracting new customers who want some grid iron grub. "We're hoping this will offset some of the lower numbers we've had so far this January."
