As the teams from New Orleans and Indianapolis are huddling up to play the biggest game of the football season on February 7 in Miami, the Pizza Hut team of more than 120,000 employees will be calling plays from the kitchens at over 6,000 restaurants across the country to fill pizza orders on the company’s busiest day of the year.
Pizza Hut is expecting a 50 percent increase in business for the big game over a typical Sunday. That means that Pizza Hut will receive over 1.2 million orders through online, phone, text, and iPhone ordering.
To visualize all those orders for pizza, pasta, and wings, the Pizza Hut research team pulled together some stats that demonstrate how a hungry nation of football fans gets fed. On game day, Pizza Hut will sell customers 1.7 million pizzas—enough to cover more than 45 football fields. More.
