Sports fans throwing parties for championship games can provide a great opportunity for restaurants looking to expand their pizza delivery sales. If you are thinking about hosting special game day menu offerings and deals, here are a few ideas to use as inspiration. Once you have the prices and menu options decided for your promotions, you can begin to advertise the deals.
Supersized Pizza Deals
Feeding a hungry horde of sports fans can be a challenge for party hosts. Having a pizza deal that can feed lots of people can be a great option for the game day. This might be a deal on three or more pizzas purchased together, or it could be an extra large pizza that can feed multiple people. Be sure to offer an option for customers to order different toppings on each half of the pizza. This will make it easier for customers to feed more guests with different taste preferences. For a fun touch, you can offer pizzas shaped like footballs.
Party sandwiches provide a delicious and easy way to feed a crowd. These deli sandwiches are served cold, making them easy for customers to order ahead of time and have ready for when the big game starts. You can create party sandwiches that are made from one long, continuous piece of bread, or you can create trays of multiple sandwiches to provide a range of different flavor combinations. Consider offering a selection of different condiments to go with the sandwiches as well as a choice of chips or French fries.
Finger foods are easy options for sports watching parties, so consider creating a few different promotions for appetizers customers can choose from. Some options might include chicken wing and French fry combos, cheese sticks and assorted dips, or mini meatballs and sliders. Consider adding one appetizer option to your party sandwiches and super-sized pizza deals for a ready-to-go party pack. You can also create a mix-and-match appetizer combination promotion that allows customers to purchase a certain number of appetizer options from your menu for a set price.
Once you have your game day menu offerings in place, you can begin to work on a promotional plan. You can advertise online, or you can mail fliers to your best customers to spread the word. Be sure to add a copy of your game day promotion ad to all of your pizza deliveries to remind customers about your deals.
