It’s football season which means fall flavors are back in the playbook as operators look to stand out and take advantage of America’s uptick in restaurant ordering that comes with every kickoff. Food delivery company GrubHub Seamless tracks take out order statistics and reports that on game day the nation sees an average 10% spike in restaurant to-go orders. That is of course accompanied by a similar traffic spike for dining in when football is on the TV. There’s no denying that for Americans eating and football viewing go hand in hand!
