For some businesses like Buffalo Wild Wings, Superbowl Sunday is a big day for sales.

Employee Jeffrey Janes said they can serve up to a 1,000 customers on this day.

"Superbowl Sunday for us is like Black Friday for other people," Janes said.

He said employees have been preparing for the big day for two months.

"We definitely order more chicken wings than we normally do and we make sure all our equipment is in order everything is ready to go. Everything is in good shape and we just try to bust it out as best as we can," Janes said.

Janes said they also scheduled more staff to keep up with the crowd.

"Definitely double the amount that I do in the kitchen, double the amount of cashiers that we have on staff, bartenders, everybody. We bring on extra," Janes said.

Janes said most people take out on Superbowl Sunday. He said in four hours, they can get up to 500 orders.

Jarrett Wolfe ordered wings for a party at home.

"I like to cater so I don't mind people in my own house," Wolfe said.

He said the best place to watch the game is at home.

"I knew it was gonna be packed and nobody is gonna turn down, I guess, the comfort of your own home. That's where I like to be. I have a nice TV going."

For some die-hard fans like Chris Garber, there's no better place to be than at Buffalo Wild Wings.

He said he comes every Sunday with his friends to watch football.

"We knew they were doing a lot of carryout so we have the free run of the place and our regular group of Ravens are here," Garber said.

He also said it's also easier than having a party at home.

"We don't have to clean up the mess. We can have people wait on us," Garber said.

Janes said they expected a bigger crowd at the restaurant this year because the Ravens were playing.
