IRVING, Texas -- With the year’s biggest football event only a few days away, 7-Eleven is helping customers prepare for Super Bowl watch parties with offers on hot food items and a few fun facts.
The convenience-store chain is offering large pizzas for $5.55, 10 chicken wings for $7.49 and five value-menu grill items for $4 on game day.
“We enjoy the spirit and traditions that the end of football season brings just like our customers do,” said Jack Stout, 7-Eleven senior vice president of merchandising. “We know what snacks, drinks and gear they want for this weekend, and we have it all without the crowds, long lines and picked-over food at grocery stores.”
The company said customers visiting a neighborhood 7-Eleven store this weekend can be sure to find everything they need, including 2-liter bottles of soda, cases of beer, chips, pizza, fresh produce and even sports gear for the game. And customers can stop by the morning after the Super Bowl for products such as Advil, Gatorade, coffee and hot breakfast items to refuel after a long night of cheering on their team.
The convenience retailer is also encouraging customers to take advantage of its 7Rewards mobile loyalty program when shopping for game-day treats. Shoppers can earn and redeem reward points toward hundreds of 7-Eleven products, including coffee, Slurpee drinks, chips and fresh-food items. The app is available in the Apple and Google app stores.
Now for those fun facts: About 43.4 million 7-Eleven chicken wings could line the path from the New England Patriots home field to the biggest football game of the year, which is being held Feb. 4 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. Almost 8.3 million pizza slices could cover the distance from the Philadelphia Eagles stadium.
