Papa Murphy's Holdings Inc., the world's leading take 'n' bake pizza franchise, announces a new partnership with Nutritionix, the industry leader in interactive nutrition solutions. As the largest national pizza chain to partner with Nutritionix, Papa Murphy's has launched a mobile-friendly and interactive online tool that provides complete nutrition and allergen information on all signature menu items and for items that customers create themselves.

"We continue to focus on our commitment to providing customers with fresh, wholesome, and nutritious options," says Dan Harmon, senior vice president of operations at Papa Murphy's. "Customization is very important to our customers and we are excited to offer the mobile-friendly Nutritionix tool, which allows them to take a closer look at the nutritional profile of the pizza creations they've developed themselves, for their own families. As consumers focus more on the nutritional value of their food, we are pleased to meet their demands by introducing the interactive Nutritionix portal that helps them to make more informed decisions to fit their lifestyles."

The easy-to-use, mobile-friendly tool is available through Papa Murphy's website and allows guests to quickly track exactly what is included in their pizza creation or menu item.

"This platform gives Papa Murphy's guests a tool to instantly calculate the nutritional value of their customized creations allowing them to choose the best options for their unique needs," says Danielle Colley, MS, RD of Nutritionix. "We created this tool to give the public more insight into their food and find healthy options that fit their busy lifestyles. We are excited to be partnering with Papa Murphy's to give customers at more than 1,400 locations nationwide the ability to empower their nutrition decisions."

A unique portion of the tool is the Allergen Tracker. This feature allows Papa Murphy's fans to select allergens they would like to avoid to find menu items that fit their dietary needs. Once an allergen is selected, visitors can then view a custom menu that is free of the allergen(s) of concern.
