Superbowl 43 is just days away here on KKCO and some local business are preparing for what is usually one of their biggest days of the year.

Forrest Smith with US Tech says "the Superbowl gets people going."
It also gets the sales at US tech going as well, people who are looking to watch Superbowl 43 on a nice new HDTV. Studies show that consumers will spend an average of $49.27 on Superbowl related items, everything from new TVs to food and drinks.

Scott Bialkowski, The general manager of Old Chicago’s, says he's ready for Superbowl Sunday but adds that while the business banks on the bar, the restaurant is a different story. Biakowski says, "the bar is pretty busy but our dining room is really slow. A lot of people plan their Superbowl parties and grilling and having people over, so our dining room really struggles that day."

So if you're one of the estimated 20 Million Americans to attend a Superbowl party, Tara Hamblen the manager of the Redlands Domino's is waiting for your call. These local businesses have tackled some of your super bowl needs but as far as friends to party with, well that's your job.
