Innovative tool empowers customers to share the bill and a slice with
LOUISVILLE, Ky.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Papa John's is thrilled to announce the introduction of PayShare, a
first-of-its-kind digital solution in the pizza industry that lets
customers immediately split their pizza bill. As Papa John's latest
innovative digital offering, PayShare, powered by Venmo, provides
customers a safe and secure option to simply and easily split the check
on any mobile or online order.
"In today's ‘sharing economy,' consumers split fares for car services
and share their homes on vacation rental sites, so why not share the
pizza bill too?," said Papa John, founder, president and CEO of Papa
John's. "PayShare is yet another milestone for Papa John's which has a
solid track record of digital ‘firsts' including the first commercial
pizza chain to allow system wide online ordering in our traditional
restaurants 15 years ago, and the first pizza brand to account for 50
percent of all sales through digital and mobile channels."
"PayShare will change the mindset of our customers as they begin to
think less of a $20 order and see it more as a $5 meal," said Bob Kraut,
Papa John's chief marketing officer. "The offering is a simple, digital
solution that allows our customers to focus on enjoying their favorite
pizza with their friends and family, not on how they're going to get
paid back. The group can even post its order on social media channels to
let its community know what it ordered."
To introduce this innovative offering, Papa John's has brought back
Indiana Pacer and NBA All-Star, Paul George, for a new commercial. Not
only will the two share the court while shooting hoops in the new ad,
they will also test drive PayShare together.
PayShare is available for use for all Papa John's customers nationwide
via online ordering and the mobile app on Android and iOS platforms. For
