Local businesses expect a boom ahead of Super Bowl Sunday

Two local businesses expect an increase in sales because of the Chiefs Super Bowl appearance

I don’t know if you’ve heard, but the Kansas City Chiefs are heading to the Super Bowl for the first time in 50 years. Their appearance calls for celebration and no one sees the celebration more than local businesses.

Missouri Eagle distributes liquor to 12 counties in Missouri. They’re expecting to see an increase in their overall sales by at least 2 to 3 percent in honor of the chiefs. Celebrations and libations go hand in hand and they say they they’re supplying.

The Pitt, a bar and restaurant in Pittsburg, also expects to see a rush of Chiefs fans looking to cheer on their hometown team in the Super Bowl. They’re expecting to move around 1000 bottles of beer and 100 pitchers alone for the big game on Sunday. They say regardless of the game or what level the athletes are playing at, Southeast Kansas residents love sports and local businesses see an increase in sales whenever local residents come out and show support.

The Pitt sold 800 bottles of beer and 75 pitchers for the AFC Championship alone. They also sold 2500 wings. They say they’re expecting to sell more than 3000 wings on Super Bowl Sunday.
