The 2023 NFL season is set to conclude with the Big Game at Allegiant Stadium this Sunday, February 11th. The teams are set: the defending champions Kansas City Chiefs will play the San Francisco 49ers in a game expected to attract over 200 million viewers. If this proves true, Super Bowl LVIII will be the most watched in history, blowing away last year’s record of 115 million viewers. It's going to be great!

As we prepare for Sunday’s Big Game, it's the perfect time to reflect on the 2023/24 season.  Zippin opened new stores at many NFL stadiums this season. Zippin-powered stores served over a quarter-million football fans, with guests often shopping in just 30 seconds. The stores also helped venue operators and teams significantly grow food and beverage sales versus traditional concession stands.
