LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Hoping to reduce customer holiday stress, Papa John's
is selling gift cards.
According to a news release, the cards are sold in $5 increments, from $10 to $100, and can be purchased at all Papa John's restaurants or at the company's Web site

"As gift card awareness increases, Papa John's has seen our Papa Card sales increase by more than 100 percent over the past year," said Sean Muldoon, Papa John's vice president.
