Study Shows Hudson Valley Fans Have Odd Super Bowl Dining Habits
According to a new study, the Hudson Valley has strange dining habits on Super Bowl Sunday.
The data science team at Womply crunched the numbers to find out just how much of an impact the Super Bowl has on local restaurants and bars across the country. For most dining establishments, the big game is terrible for business. On average, restaurants see a 14% decrease in business versus an average day. And compared to a normal Sunday, restaurants can expect to see a loss of 19% of their revenue. The only big winner across the board are pizzerias. On average, pizza deliveries are up 22% on Super Bowl Sunday.
In Poughkeepsie and Newburgh, however, it's a very different story. While our area doesn't see much of an increase at bars, Super Bowl Sunday does seem to have a big impact on restaurants. Unlike the rest of the country, Hudson Valley restaurants actually see a pretty healthy increase on Super Bowl Sunday.
In a nationwide list of places with an increase of restaurant revenue during the big game, the Hudson Valley tied for fourth place with Philadelphia. According to the numbers, business at Poughkeepsie and Newburgh restaurants see an average increase of 13% on Super Bowl Sunday.
So while most of the country is busy in the kitchen whipping up football-themed platters, it looks like many of us are going to take the easy way out and let someone else do the cooking.
