The best food deals you can get after the Panthers win

If you’re a Panthers, Hornets, or Checkers player, you’re celebrating your win by prepping for the next one. If you’re a fan, you’re celebrating the win by partying so hard that you’re late to work the next morning. And by taking full advantage of the guilty-pleasure deals throughout the city.

Keep pounding? Keep eating.

If the Panthers win:

$4 for a dozen donuts at any North or South Carolina Krispy Kreme. (Side note: I learned this deal existed firsthand when I waited an hour for donuts on a rainy Monday night. 5/10 would do it again – there’s something about the promise of that Hot Now sign.)


50% off your Papa John’s online order any time the Panthers score 20 or more. Not that that’s a problem. Use code PANTHERS20.

Bonus: Papa John’s has an everyday Panthers deal because we’re just that good. Order two large two-topping pizzas online for $7.77 each with the code PANTHERS777.

If the Hornets win:

If the Buzz brings the buzz and scores 95 points, look for 50% off Papa John’s online orders with code HORNETS95 the next day.

The Checkers are home. And they brought the deals:


When the Checkers score a Power Play Goal at home (like Jake Chelios did this weekend), get an order of Queen City Q hushpuppies on them the following Monday. Just mention it to your server.

Present your ticket stub at Queen City Q to get 10% off of your order, validated parking with your meal, and a shuttle ride to and from the game for just $2.
