AMERICAN PIZZA COMMUNITY SAYS FAMILIES RING IN NEW YEAR’S CELEBRATIONS WITH PIZZA



Washington, D.C. – December 22, 2015 – According to the American Pizza Community (APC), pizza is the shared meal choice among many families during New Year’s festivities when most families are together.  From the convenience of ordering a fresh, hot meal to being a crowd pleaser, most family gatherings and celebratory occasions are marked with orders from local pizza stores including New Year’s Eve and Day.

With more than 34 million ways to order a pizza, it is a communal meal that is meant to be shared, customizable and liked broadly.  In fact, 85 percent of pizza today is consumed at home as families turn to the convenience of delivery and carry-out to share family meals.

Pizza remains a top choice because it is convenient and unique – made-to-order, handmade, freshly-baked, high-quality ingredients.  Consider a few pizza industry fast facts:
There are 3 billion pizzas sold in the U.S. each year.
There are more than 73,000 pizzerias in the U.S.
94 percent of the U.S. population eats pizza (Parade Magazine 2012).
Americans rank pizza fourth on the most-craved food list (American Dairy Association random-sampling survey).
The average family eats pizza at home 30 times a year (PMQ Monthly).
The most popular days for ordering pizza are Super Bowl Sunday, Halloween, the day before Thanksgiving, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.
