Papa John's to hold Facebook contest during busy Halloween delivery schedule
Oct. 28, 2009
While the National Retail Federation predicts a drop in Halloween costume and candy sales this year, Papa John's is anything but scared, anticipating a big night for the pizza industry on what is consistently one of the busiest nights of the year after the Superbowl and the night before Thanksgiving.
On hand to help with the influx of pizza orders are more than 70,000 Papa John's employees, including 20,000 drivers -- double the average number on a Saturday night -- to dish up and deliver the more than 900,000 pizzas expected to be sold this Halloween.
With so much pizza and so many drivers knocking on the door, Papa John's is inviting customers to post photos of themselves in Halloween costumes -- holding a Papa John's pizza box or standing with a company delivery driver -- on the Papa John's Facebook Page for a chance to be randomly selected as one of five Papa John's "Fans of the Week" and receive a $50 Papa Card.
