100 Acres of Pizza Served Daily in the US



According to a trade organization for the pizza industry, America gets about 100 acres of this food on a typical day:

For those of you yet to take lunch, we think it's the perfect time for a hunger-inducing stat of the day. The Daily tells us, in a profile of healthy pizza purveyor Naked Pizza, that the United States pizza industry "serves about 100 acres of pizza a day." This figure comes from the National Association of Pizza Operators, an organization that aims "to create and foster a community of independent and small chain pizzeria operators and their industry suppliers where doing business with one another is mutually beneficial."


If this includes Chicago-style pizza, then the measurement really should be in cubic feet. Link -via First Things | Photo by Flickr user roolrool used under Creative Commons license

A 20" pizza has an area of what, 2.2 square feet or so? so you'd be looking at 1,980,000 20" pizzas? I can see 2 million pies in a day.

I don't buy it.

100 acres = 4,356,000 square feet

US Population = 311,624,390

Pizza per person = 0.01398 square feet or 2.01 square inches.

Assuming only 1 person in 1000 is eating pizza that day, that's 13.95 square feet of pizza per person.
