Campaign for a Papa Johns in Chicago


Laura has started a campaign to get a Papa Johns into the city of Chicago. She sent the following to Papa Johns:

when o when will you open a Chicago location? i have been waiting for so long. you force me to eat “pizza-like” subsitutes like Domino’s and Pizza Hut, since i live within the Chicago city limits. please spare me this humiliation and open a location within Chicago.

Here’s my email to them:

Let me ask you… If there was a pizza capital of the world in America, would you think that Papa Johns would have a location there? Certainly you would. Papa Johns gotta represent in the pizza capital of the world.

What if told you that Chicago was the pizza capital of the world. And that Papa Johns has NO locations there. Find that hard to believe? It is true, and I still find it very difficult to swallow this hard truth.

Is Papa Johns afraid of being part of the incredible Chicago pizza legacy? Surely not with your better ingredients and better pizza. Is Papa Johns too good for Chicago?

Chicagoans are clamoring for the Papa Johns legacy. Can you hear them now? “pa-pa JOHNS. pa-pa JOHNS.” They are screaming the from the tops of buildings. From the depths of the valleys. From the lake to shore. From the south side to the north side. The voice is getting louder. and louder still. Papa Johns! Where are you?

You can leave your comments to Papa Johns at their feedback form: http://www.papajohns.com/feedback/ele_feed.htm

Or mailing them a snail mail letter to:

Pa-Pa can you hear me?! I love Papa Johns. I was introduced to Papa’s at Illinois Wesleyan. I actually know some people from Wesleyan who hate Papa Johns. They are bad people and should never be allowed to eat pizza again.

You live in Pizza City USA [and no, I don’t consider Pizza Hut or Domino’s “pizza””> and want a Papa Johns in the city!? I’m confused …

tom, i’m not necessarily a fan of chain pizza either. but to us [laura, spud, moose”>, Papa John’s is more than just pizza. it’s a symbol of our youth. it’s a symbol of community, artmaking, all-nighters, inspiration, weirdness, friendship, and possibilities. so as you can see, we have a dire need for Papa John’s in our lives again. it’s not just about food. it’s about life. and anyway, it tastes really good!

I can fully appreciate trying to recapture an era of your life through food, though I would think you would need to get about 500,000 people who feel the same way to sign a petition to have Papa Johns open an outlet in an already highly competitive pizza market. I’m not saying it can’t happen, it will just be a challenge. The Cottage Inn in Ann Arbor is the pizza I grew up on [in… Read more »

i just saw a commercial for Papa John’s, promoting a free DVD giveaway! what do they think, i’m going to hop the Purple Line up to Evanston for carryout? why would they run this commercial in the city [of Chicago”>, when none of us can order the damn pizza anyway?!?!

Actually, now that you mention it, I see commercials for Papa Johns with a good deal of frequency which has made me think they have outlets in the city. If they don’t, they are wasting their advertising $$$ by buying air time in the city.
