So Papa John's CEO claims that a price increase and hours cut to thousands of employees...

is necessary due entirely to government-mandated healthcare; yet has the coin to give away 2 million free pizzas this football season...? #republicanmathfail

13. *sigh* It would be prudent for Peyton Manning to dump Papa John ASAP

 

and sell off the franchise at a loss, and HEAVILY invest into Blackjack's - a FAR better local chain that has had Bronco endorsements before (Rod Smith was the latest one before he retired).

10. The way that free pizza thing works is similar to airline frequent flyer programs.

You know - you buy a pizza, you get points. You can use those points toward free pizzas. The repeat business alone more than makes up for it - it's marketing 101.

14. Well I used to get Papa Points - 25 points = free pizza.

 

Except you have to spend $250 just to get the free pizza (takes about 10 times or less)

PAPA25 is the code for the free pizza once they tick you as a valid buyer.

Poor thing is wondering where the hell I am - probably got about 5 free pizzas in the past 5 years, but we have called off _ALL_ papa john's crap about six months ago, favoring Marco's Pizza - a chain that makes pretty good pizza, but hate the Pepsi products.

11. I get real tire of COEs and their money problems!

They say it will cost them more money to have insurance for the hard working employees, but yet they can give millions of dollars to Rove-care!
