Each year, millions of people gather with their friends around their TVs at home or at their favorite sports bar to watch the season's two best teams battle it out for the championship trophy. Of course, with that many people around and emotions running high, people are bound to get hungry. Don't make people miss out on the action by spending the game in the kitchen, though. Treat yourself and your company to a delicious spread from Papa Johns this February 13th.
Pizza and Wings
You can't go wrong with traditional game-day cuisines like pizza and wings. The pizza alone provides practically endless options. First, decide which crust options to go with for the group: choose from our signature original pizza dough, go with a NY style pizza if you like a thinner crust, or wow your guests with our crowd-pleasing Epic Stuffed Crust. Then, go to town on the toppings. Grab curated menu options like our Extra Cheesy Alfredo pizza or one with all the meats, or get creative and have everyone create their own pizzas.
As great as pizza is, you can't forget the wings. Traditional BBQ wings or hot and spicy buffalo wings are staples at any football get-together but don't forget to add in a little something different by trying Honey Chipotle wings. Even unsauced wings are delicious when you get them from the right place.
Other Sides For the Smorgasbord
You'll need plenty of other appetizers to keep a crowd satisfied during any football game. Are your friends bread lovers? Keep them satisfied with Garlic Knots or Cheesesticks during half time. Do they love things a little on the spicy side? Be sure to serve up some Jalapeno Popper Rolls. They might even enjoy our Papadias® (think quesadilla, but better!), made in flavors such as Philly Cheesesteak, Grilled Buffalo Chicken, or Meatball Pepperoni.
After all that delicious food, a lot of people are going to have a sweet tooth. Be prepared by including some desserts with your carryout or delivery order. Partygoers who prefer lighter treats can munch down on Cinnamon Pull-Aparts, while the chocoholics in the ground will love the Double Chocolate Chip Brownie. Of course, football Sundays are a tradition, and that means a traditional dessert is needed, too, so don't forget to grab one of our Chocolate Chip Cookie.
Don't Forget the Drinks
Your friends and family will need something to help them wash down all the delicious food, so don't forget the drinks. Beer and other alcoholic beverages are common at football viewing parties, but it's always a good idea to have something else on tap as well. If someone isn't drinking alcohol or isn't old to drink, you can provide them with water or a variety of Pepsi products. This way, everyone will feel included no matter what kind of beverages they prefer.
All this food is a great idea, but it'll take a little planning. If you're having a large party and want carryout or delivery, be sure to call a day or two in advance to have your order accommodated. This way, there are no surprises. Don't forget to clear the counter space for our NY Style and Epic Stuffed Crust pizzas, BBQ wings, and everything else on the menu.
