Lowcountry Businesses See Boost From Super Bowl

While some will be cheering for the purple team, and some for the red, one lowcountry business will be cheering for the green, as they rake-in the cash this Super Bowl Sunday.

"It is one of our biggest days of the year, we look forward to it every year," said David Tanczuk, General Manager, Bluffton Wild Wing Cafe.

With Sunday being such a busy day for Wild Wing Cafe-- it takes some advance planning and a whole lot of wings.

"We plan for our order on Thursdays, accordingly we probably brought in about 85 cases of wings to sell today, so it's going to be a very trying day here in a little bit."

Officials say early afternoon is the calm before the storm of this massive sporting event.

"We will be full by about 4:30-5 o'clock, and we'll stay that way til the game starts and after that, we'll see what happens."

Now, it's not just folks coming in and sitting for the game its also about to-go orders, officials say that about half their business today will be curbside.

"We'll probably do about 14-15 thousand dollars and half of that will be going out the to-go door."

Managers say Super Bowl Sunday is a major boost to business which is good because its also the end of football season...which means a slight slowdown in foot traffic.

"We have a little bit of a slowdown in the next couple weeks but then march madness kicks back up and we'll be going right back into games."

And folks in the lowcountry aren't the only football fans enjoying some chicken wings today.

The National Chicken Council estimates that Americans will eat more than a billion wings during the big game.
