Super Bowl excitement creates supply chain disruptions

UC associate dean encourages people to shop early

As businesses and individuals seek items such as chicken wings and Bengals apparel for Super Bowl gatherings, high demand is forcing some to adapt, WLWT reported.

Supply chain disruptions that have occurred throughout the COVID-19 pandemic have improved, said Chuck Sox, the associate dean of impact and partnerships for the University of Cincinnati Carl H. Lindner College of Business. However, high demand is leading to shortages of some items in the days leading up to the Super Bowl.

“It's concentrated in Cincinnati, in particular, this year, for obvious reasons,” Sox said. “Your local store might run out of your favorite brand of beer or might run out of chicken wings. So, you know, it's just important for us to get out early and shop around, see what we can find.”
