Post Super Bowl Pizza promotion offered by Papa Johns Tue, 08 Feb 2011 16:39:33 +0000 Michelle Papa John’s have decided to extend their pizza promotions following last weekend’s Super Bowl by launching the Toppings for Touchdowns special offer.

The pizza giant is offering customers from February 7-9th who buy a large pizza from their regular menu, the chance to add seven different toppings for no extra cost, the same number of toppings as touchdowns scored on Sunday’s Super Bowl.

The Super Bowl has been great for business in the US with all of the major pizza chains vying for a slice of the action by launching exclusive discounts especially for the popular sporting event.

Papa John’s decided to not advertise during the commercial break, when the Fox TV network charges as much as $3 million for 30 seconds airtime, and instead opted to push their brand via pizza promotions.

In the 45 days leading up to the big event, Papa John’s were offering any large pizza with an unlimited number of toppings for just $10, plus the pizza experts were giving away $45 gift cards to customers at various intervals during the build up to the match.

The current Papa John’s Super Bowl pizza offer is valid until February 9th and is available to all online orders in the US, so get ordering now to make the most of the exclusive Toppings for Touchdowns offer.

The new application offers Papa John customers the chance to browse their pizza menu via their iPhone, and also place and customise their orders easily and quickly.

Papa John’s Pizza launched their mobile website back in 2008 which has been well received, however the new Apple app will offer all of the same services as the mobile website and more.

The new application allows customers to log-in to their own personal account and order the ahead of time, from their express menu, earn Papa Points via the company’s reward scheme, and also a favourites feature whereby the items you order most often will be stored for your convenience.

Both Domino’s and Pizza Hut have reported very strong sales via their pizza apps, with Domino’s revealing a third of all orders were received via their iPhone applications during 2010. Papa John’s will no doubt be hoping to replicate the success of its competitors with their brand new mobile phone app.

Pizza loyalty scheme launched by Papa Johns Tue, 19 Oct 2010 13:21:59 +0000 kate

Papa Johns have launched a new pizza loyalty scheme to help encourage online sales in the US.

The pizza chain is also planning a complete makeover of its website as the company aims to increase online sales of pizza. Currently a quarter of Papa John’s pizza orders are made via their website, however with the introduction of the new revamped site, the pizza giant hopes to generate 50% of its sales online.

The new website will showcase a number of new features including a facility which forms an image of customer’s pizza as they are placing their order and tailoring their pizza to their personal preferences with different toppings and pizza base choices.

The new loyalty programme, known as Papa Points, is only available in the US initially and will award each customer one point for every $5 spent. When the customer reaches 25 points, they will be able to trade in their points in exchange for a free pizza.

The decision to launch a rewards based programme was made after the pizza chain conducted a study which found that people are more likely to part with more of their money online if they receive some kind of reward for doing so.

Papa Johns say the drive to increase online sales will not result in less people being employed in store, instead the staff will now be able to concentrate on the important business of making delicious pizza.
