Papa John’s International announced its 2011 Franchise Operators of the Year.
Papa John's announced last week in its fourth-quarter earnings call that its "Super Bowl XLVI Coin Toss Experience” resulted in a sizeable uptick in online orders.
The promotion offered a free large one-topping pizza and two-liter of Pepsi MAX to Papa Rewards members if online voters correctly “called” the Super Bowl coin toss.
Though executives declined to disclose numbers, they said the rise in online orders this year, helped by the Super Bowl promotion, has been significant.
Papa John’s, the Official Pizza Sponsor of the NFL, today announced that America has called “heads” in Papa John’s Super Bowl XLVI Coin Toss Experience.
With America’s call, the millions of fans enrolled in the company’s Papa Rewards customer loyalty program will receive a free large one-topping pizza and 2-liter Pepsi MAX if the coin toss in Super Bowl XLVI lands on “heads.”
America chose which side of the coin based on popular vote the past 10 days at www.papajohns.com. “Heads” prevailed with 60 percent of the vote.
No National Football League sponsor knows a quality “toss” like Papa John’s founder, chairman, and CEO John Schnatter, but he’s counting on America to call the coin toss for Super Bowl XLVI so that the country can flip over free pizza.

You know the adage, “You’re known by the company you keep”? Whether we like it or not, we’re often judged by whom we know and hang around.
The same could be said about brands. In this day and age when almost everything is branded and brand messages seem to pop up everywhere, the other companies you choose to hang around with say a lot about your own brand.
The quick-service industry is closing the customer satisfaction gap standing between it and the full-service industry, according to a new study.
