Rockford- Hoffman House bar in Rockford has a majority of Packers fans on Sundays unlike many Illinois bars.

Patrick Sellers went there for the first time. He says his father brought him a Packers jersey when he was younger and he’s been a fan ever since.

Workers at the bar say catering towards Packers fans is a big boost for business. Employee at Hoffman House Michelle Ware says “it makes us stand out a little bit too. Being that it’s a Packers bar and everybody else kind of leans towards the Bears. Like I said we have a lot of regulars who come here every Sunday. We have people lined up outside the door before it even opens.”
