Tips to Increase Business on Super Bowl Sunday

  • Advertise throughout January and support your efforts with social media to build the hype
  • Tie your message in with the event, but be sure your promotion is all about your brand and not the game itself
  • Be sure you are prepared with inventory and strong staffing
  • Create a special menu for the even – be sure to offer the foods that customer want, but limiting overall choices to make life easier for your staff
  • In addition to obvious choices like pizza and wings, consider a special item or two that will set you apart from other pizza shops in town


Use Shared Mail to put your advertising piece right in your prospect or customers hand.

Our Shared Mail program provides positive results for a variety of businesses including those in the business of providing pizza!  Use our program to let everyone know about your delicious pizza and special offers for Super Bowl Sunday.

Shared mail is a highly flexible tool in any pizza restaurant’s marketing arsenal. Tangible and eye-catching, a well-designed shared mail piece promotes brand awareness and boosts your credibility with both your customers and prospects.

Successful pizza restaurants are using shared mail to create awareness, attract a loyal following, and keep bringing people in to their establishment.  You don’t need to convince people that they should order pizza for the Super Bowl you just need to convince them to order it from you.  Shared mail is a tool that has proven to make that happen.

Use our postcards, single sheets, or a multi-page flyer to:

  • Showcase your menu and mouthwatering images of your food
  • Promote delivery and/or takeout, party platters, and other menu suggestions
  • Offer up coupons and deals tied to the big game
  • Encourage customer to place their orders in advance to allow you time to stock up and prepare your staff
  • Remind everyone of your location, game day hours, and contact information

    You made a good point when you said pizza restaurant would surely benefit a lot come Superbowl in February. These restaurants would surely come up with savvy promos and advertise early to be able to generate a whole lot of revenue even before the big event starts. They would definitely associate their offer with the Superbowl event and come up with special menus that are simply irresistible for pizza lovers like me. In the meantime, I’ll just have to order a simple plain cheese pizza in our local restaurant. Thanks.
