Give Mom a Break: Let ``Papa'' Do the Cooking This Mother's Day

LOUISVILLE, Ky.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 12, 2006--Don't trust dad and the kids in the kitchen this Mother's Day! Let America's favorite papa - Papa John - cook for your family this Sunday, by ordering mom's favorite pizza and sides from your local Papa John's (NASDAQ: PZZA) restaurant.

Online ordering via www.papajohns.com makes planning a Mother's Day celebration easier than ever. Since mom has eyes in the back of her head, families may want to wait until she's sleeping to place their online order, which is now available 24/7 at papjohns.com. Simply log on, choose from an array of pizza toppings and side items, and specify the time of pick-up or delivery on Sunday. It's that simple.

Can't decide what to order? Here are some familiar suggestions we may have all heard from mom at some point in the past:

"Eat your vegetables." Papa John's Garden Fresh pizza is generously topped with fresh-sliced green peppers and onions, gourmet baby portabella mushrooms, olives grown in the rich soils of Spain, and now fresh sliced Roma tomatoes.

"You're in DEEP trouble." You won't be in trouble, but you will be in deep when you order Papa's Perfect Pan pizza - square and deep so you can pile on the toppings!

"I'm going to count to three..." Papa John's offers three drinks - Coke, Diet Coke, and Sprite - to quench mom's thirst.

"Clean up after yourself." You'll definitely need a napkin once you start digging into Papa's Spicy Buffalo Wings and Mild Chipotle Barbeque Wings.

"Finish dinner and you can have dessert." Papa's Sweetreats are available in three delicious flavors: CinnaSwirl, Apple Twist and Very Berry.

Headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, Papa John's is the world's third largest pizza company. For six years running, consumers have rated Papa John's No. 1 in customer satisfaction among all national QSR chains in the highly regarded American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI).
