Domino’s prepares for busy State of Origin

FOOTBALL, pies and a squirt of tom' sauce have forever been the winning combo for Australians.

But there are three times a year when the old four 'n' twenty just doesn't cut it - State of Origin.

As die-hard supporters, semi-interested family members and those who pretend to give a damn about football don their maroon jerseys, it's pizza at the top of everyone's mid-week menu.

Warwick Domino's franchisee Jeremy Winlaw said he and the team were bracing for a busy night.

"People love pizza and this is definitely our busiest night of the year," Mr Winlaw said.

On an average Wednesday night, Domino's usually sells about 150 pizzas, but tonight is a whole different story.

"We'll hopefully sell over 500 pizzas," Mr Winlaw said.

But we Warwickites aren't afraid to plan ahead, with some people placing orders from mid-morning, to ensure their pizzas are at the door before kick-off.

"Everyone calls up during the day to place their orders, so we will be really busy with deliveries," Mr Winlaw said.

"There are three nights of the year it goes off... each origin game."
