The NFL’s biggest game of the season gains a lot of traction from the number of viewers to the amount of food ordered with endless deals to fuel the on-demand service. This year’s game showcased the biggest stars in the history of hip-hop and R&B for the halftime show, featuring nostalgia-packed commercials for cars and crypto and an all-around great football game. To wrap the weekend up, for the first time ever, Valentine’s day was the day after the game.

For four straight days, restaurants worked non-stop to provide guests with on-demand food with Super Bowl Sunday and Valentine’s Day increasing demand significantly. To highlight the momentous occasion, we partnered with DoorDash Drive and offered free delivery on all orders at no cost to brands or their guests! We’ve pulled together the Super Bowl stats for our brands to show how football’s most televised game influences the guest experience.
