As the San Francisco and Baltimore football teams get ready for their biggest
Sunday of the season, Domino's anticipates delivering over 11 million pizza
slices and 2.5 million chicken wings nationwide on game day – nearly an 80
percent overall increase from a typical Sunday.
"Every night in a Domino's store is a dress rehearsal for big days like
Sunday," said Chris Brandon, Domino's Pizza spokesperson. "There are few
occasions better than this one for us to deliver pizza, wings and other
Domino's favorites to gatherings across the nation – and our team is certainly
prepared and ready to deliver a great game day meal to millions on Sunday."
One of the convenient ways fans and customers can get what they want from
Domino's will be via digital ordering – whether it be online or through an app
on their mobile device. On Sunday, helped by features such as timed ordering
and Domino's Tracker^®, Domino's expects to see a 30 percent increase in
digital orders over a typical Sunday.
"We hope customers will take advantage of our useful timed ordering feature
for that big order on the big day – one of the many ways online ordering can
give you one less thing to think about come Sunday," said Brandon.
Domino's isn't the only company excited about the big day – and will be
participating with a key partner who is also looking forward to Sunday.
Coca-Cola began its Big Game campaign on Jan. 23 at www.CokeChase.com, which
encourages fans to help determine the ending of its game day commercial, and
features exclusive integration from Domino's, as well as promotion on Domino's
Tracker and throughout online ordering.
