Stores across Queensland and New South Wales readies itself for the upcoming 2015 Holden State of Origin series.
According to the chain, this time last year over 550,000 pizzas were sold across the three nights, with New South Wales taking over Queensland with a whopping 213,000 pizzas sold to hungry Rugby League fans.
Domino’s Australia and New Zealand Operations Manager Nick Knight said that stores across the nation will be putting on extra delivery drivers to deal with the increased demand on game nights.
“Pizza brings people together and is a food people love to share; it is the number one food eaten across Australia over these three nights,” he noted.
“550,000 pizzas sold means a huge 4.3 million slices of pizza consumed which is phenomenal-
and we expect that number to be even higher this year.
“Managers have been stocking up on ingredients- over 44 tonnes of cheese, 50 tonnes of sauce, and 16,000 litres of soft drink will be consumed over the three game nights alone.”
Knight recommends that customers pre-ordered online to ensure pizzas arrive before kick-off so they don’t miss a moment of the action.
“While the boys on the field will be tackling the shield, we will be tackling a barrage of pizza orders from hungry league fans, with Meatlovers, Supreme, and Hawaiian tipped to be most popular,” he said.
“The phone will be going crazy in stores across the country, particularly in Queensland and New South Wales, so it’s important to get in early to make sure you have your piping hot pizza to enjoy during the game.”
