More Reason to Enjoy Papa John’s Pizza

Papa John's Pizza - Tuscan Six Cheese

I really enjoyed my experience the first time I dined at Papa John’s Pizza. The food was flavorful and the ambiance at their Jupiter Branch was really cozy. However, paying for over a thousand pesos for two single servings of pasta, sodas and a regular-sized pizza was quite pricey for me. Still, I made a point to visit this pizza place once in a while. I know that what they offer is different from what other pizza and pasta restaurants can deliver as far as the quality of food is concerned. Their “Better Ingredients. Better Pizza.” tagline works for me. Recently, I discovered that they slashed their prices off and is now offering their very own Kiddie Party Packages. Now there’s more reason to enjoy Papa John’s Pizza!   Moms and Dads won’t have to worry about celebrating their children’s birthday party with Papa John’s new Kiddie Party Packages. There ...

The event, spearheaded by the Philippine Retailers Association, was well attended by officials and executives of the industry.
