Super Bowl Sunday is the biggest day of the year for pizza sales! And while we can't count on our favorite team to win the game, businesses like Papa Murphy's (the fifth largest pizza chain in the nation) certainly count on lots of hungry customers to rush through their doors. We'd love to have you join us at a Papa Murphy's store in our area to watch the “workout” THE ENTIRE WEEK BEFORE the Super Bowl to tackle all those game day pizza orders!

These are the Game Day Stats for the # of pizzas Papa Murphy’s sells Super Bowl Sunday:

Nearly 16,000 GALLONS of sauce

More than 7 million slices of pepperoni

More than 119 TONS of shredded mozzarella

Roughly 401,000 dough balls


Papa Murphy’s is so successful on Super Bowl Sunday because the company capitalizes on the new trend of staying home with family to watch the big game. At Papa Murphy’s, you pick your own fresh ingredients and take the pizza home to bake in your own oven – VS- waiting on the delivery boy with a cold pizza.

The new trend of staying home for the Super Bowl is catching on. In fact, 46% of Americans will watch the Super Bowl at home with their family. And did you know pizza is the favorite meal for children ages 3 -11 and the nation’s 4TH most craved food.
