N.C. Papa John’s launches Facebook contest
Six Papa John’s pizza locations in and around Wilmington, N.C., have launched a Facebook contest for the chance to win a free pizza meal for participants’ Super Bowl party.
The contest, currently underway, runs through Feb. 5, the day before Super Bowl XLV.
Five winners will be chosen from entries submitted via the six units’ Facebook page, and will win three large pizzas, three orders of wings and two 2-liters of Coca Cola.
Wilmington franchisee Rick Gordon teamed up with SayItSocial, a social media marketing and Facebook applications company, and Colonial Marketing, a public relations company, to plan and execute the Facebook campaign.
“Facebook has become a touch-point to keep relationships stronger with consumers today and businesses are starting to see the power of ‘social capitol and advocacy.’ We are thrilled to have helped Papa John’s of Wilmington build this Facebook presence,” said Ty Downing, CEO of SayItSocial.
All contestants will be selected from a random drawing of qualified entrees Feb. 5. All entries must be completed by noon on that day.
Papa John’s is in the first year of a multi-year sponsorship with the NFL and also is the official pizza of the Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore Ravens, Dallas Cowboys, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, Miami Dolphins, New York Giants, New York Jets, Philadelphia Eagles, Seattle Seahawks, St. Louis Rams, Tennessee Titans and Washington Redskins.
