Local restaurants serve up Super Bowl pizzas


“We do a lot of business out of this little store,” Hardy said. Usually, according to Hardy, people wait until the last minute to order their pizzas but that they did have a few orders placed ahead of time.

“You would think we would have a lot of pre-orders, but nope, people just usually wait until the last minute,” he said. “I think they think they will get a better time that way.”

As for watching the game, Hardy said he forgot to take a TV into work but that someone might bring one so that employees could look in on the game during breaks and when they weren’t filling orders.

Papa John’s truck driver A.J. Hart was at the store early Sunday afternoon making usual deliveries of pizza ingredients. According to him, stores prepare for game day weeks ahead of time.

“Stores have been ordering ahead and they’re pretty good about knowing what they need,” he said. “This has been a month-long process where they’ll order stuff ahead of time so we’re not completely packed full on Super Bowl Sunday.”

Hardy said he left the company’s home city of Louisville, Ky. around 5:30 a.m. Sunday morning and would be making deliveries as far north as Battle Creek, Mich. until late into the night, meaning he would miss the game, but would probably listen to it on the radio inside his truck.

“I haven’t seen much football this year, so I mean it’s not a big thing, but I’d like to at least listen to it,” he said.
