Exclusive Brief: 

As candidates chewed over issues like the economy, foreign policy, and income inequality in both the Democratic and GOP debates, Americans were indulging in pizza in record numbers for both parties, according to data gathered from more than 650 Marco’s Pizza stores in 35 states nationwide.

The Toledo, Ohio–based fast-growing pizza chain tracked orders across its franchise system over the past three presidential debates, finding increases in orders of as much as 40 percent over the same weeknights last year in several markets.
