Super Bowl LVII had 113 million viewers, making it the third most-watched television program of all-time. It topped 2022’s game of 112.3 million viewers and represented the best audience for the big game in six years.
As the second largest food holiday, behind only Thanksgiving, viewer celebrations required some thoughtful planning and spending for either at home gatherings or restaurant and bar outings. According to the National Retail Federation, the 113 million viewers anticipated that of the $16.5 billion they would spend on Super Bowl LVII, 79% of their budget would go toward food and beverages.
Restaurant brands with Punchh customer loyalty programs seized the opportunity of this beloved food holiday to provide plenty of delicious options to hungry fans.
