Super Bowl Keeps Area Pizzerias Busy

According to a news report from, “Super Bowl Sunday is one of the busiest days of the year for area pizzerias.”

“At Just Pizza on Elmwood, the phones began ringing by 7am. By 9:30 they already had close to 200 orders. General Manager Joe Luzio said the key is to prepare as much as you can ahead of time. By the time the day is over, they will have made about 40-thousand chicken wings and 3-thousand pizzas at their thirteen locations. Luzio said what makes this day so busy is that most orders are requested for a short time period,” said the story. “LaNova Pizzeria has also been preparing for this day for weeks. Knowing there was a chicken wing shortage nationwide, they placed their order well ahead of time. Their two locations will have gone through about 40-thousand pounds of wings and hundreds and hundreds of pizzas by the end of the day. Carla Todaro Pantano says they are as busy as they have ever been, and she expects there will be about 100 drivers between the two locations making deliveries.”
