Papa John's is doing its part to make holiday gift giving simple this year. The nation's third largest pizza company today delivered nearly a million "Papa Cards," to more than 5,300 retail outlets throughout the country. The gift cards, available in $10 or $25 amounts are redeemable for pizza, sides, or Coca-Cola products at more than 2,600 participating Papa John's restaurants. Papa Cards are also available for purchase online at www.papajohns.com.

Participating retailers offering Papa Cards for purchase include: Kroger, Food 4 Less Warehouse Stores, Dillons, Speedway/SuperAmerica, Fry's Markets, Smith's Food & Drug Stores, Ralph’s, ExxonMobil, King Soopers, Race Trac, and JayC Food Stores

"We are in the business of bringing quality pizzas right to the doors of our customers," says Jim Ensign, vice president of marketing communications for Papa John's. "Now Papa John's helps customers save time during the busiest season of the year. Instead of braving the mall crowds looking for gifts, our customers can now purchase Papa Cards while waiting in line at the grocery or convenience store or online. Shopping just doesn't get any easier than that."

A recent survey commissioned by Yahoo! Small Business and conducted by Harris Interactive, found that more than eight of ten holiday shoppers (83 percent) said they would shop for holiday gifts online.
