Super Bowl Sunday is a big day for football — and for food.
Desmond Carson, Buffalo Wild Wings manager, said people should expect a crowd if they decide to watch the game at the Western Boulevard location.
“You definitely probably want to get here super early and be prepared for a long line if you don’t get here early,” he said.
The location prepares for Super Bowl Sunday by planning ahead and making sure they have a solid game plan together before the big day. Carson also said they plan to increase their staff to accomodate the larger crowds.
Billy Sioufi, general manager at the Western Boulevard location, said WingZone will also see an increase in orders. He recommended people get their orders in early or even pre-order so they can enjoy their time and not have to wait on food being made.
In order to prepare for the influx of customers, he said his location increased its staff by 25 percent. He said he expects the high volume of customers from the Super Bowl will increase their business over the next six months. The location also plans to have more phone lines than usual and expand their kitchen to accomodate the increase.
