Rocco's Pizza prepares for ND-USC rush
SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Over 200,000 football fans are expected to be in town this weekend. For some restaurants, that means big business!
Rocco's Pizza in South Bend has been serving Notre Dame fans for 60 years! Owners know the USC game is always the biggest of the season, so, they adjust accordingly.
"We're normally open 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. and we're going to open at 2 p.m. We'll be here before that so if we get orders before that, which is usually the case. We'll be here to take those. We're going to stay open until at least, like I said, we're normally open until 1 a.m., which is a plus for us, especially during a night game,” said Rocky Verteramo, the Manager of Rocco's.
Rocco's also plans to add extra staff this weekend to accommodate the crowds.
