As the Broncos win, so do Southern Colorado pizza delivery restaurants. Since many fans here don't attend the games, they hold parties at their homes. And when the home team is doing well, business fares well, too!
Employees at Papa John's on Union say, whenever the Broncos play, their business increases by at least 20percent. General manager Bryan Haverkorn says they can count on delivering any where from 50 to 100 pizzas on game days. They can even tell how well the broncos are doing without watching the game. "We can tell how the broncos are doing just based on how the phones are ringing and the drivers know based on tips. Tips are better when the Broncos are winning," says Haverkorn.
And since the Broncos are playing pretty well so far this season, pizza professionals are gearing up for what they hope will be a busy Superbowl in January.
