Some “Pizza Fun Facts” provided by Pizza.com include:
A total of 94% of Americans eat pizza regularly. Pizza accounts for more than 10% of all food service sales.
The top five pizza sales days are Super Bowl Sunday, New Year’s Eve, Halloween, the night before Thanksgiving, and New Year’s Day. On Super Bowl Sunday, pizza delivery drivers can expect normally $2 tips to often soar as high as $20. On that day, Domino’s delivery drivers will log around 4 million miles.
The average pizzeria uses roughly 55 pizza boxes per day.
Curiously, there is another National Cheese Pizza Day celebrated annually on Feb. 9. Not that anyone’s complaining, of course.
