I wouldn't call Papa John's a "Pizza Shop." Doesn't do justice to all the great Pizza Shops out there. More like a Pizza Franchise....

So much for Manning seeing the future trend of eating real food. Like the franchise Tender Greens - awesome food - always organic and locally grown whenever possible. This is the 'chain' I would be investing in.

Bull**** hippie. People want their fast food that taste good and they know it is bad for you. He wants to make money not watch people eat grass.

Also, we now know where those extra 1 million pizzas are coming from. 2) I haven't had their pizza in years because the two times I had it, it sucked really bad.

PJs is okay. Dominos literally makes me sick when I eat it. When I was in CO I think I ordered blackjacks? Does this sound right? Another fave Bronco of mine used to do their adverts. I imagine picked PJs because it is an international chain. They have dominos and PJs in England at least and Pizza Hut tho the hut does not deliver here. Prefer smaller places but PJs has more exposure and I'd imagine Peyton likes that

And yeah, Rod Smith used to do the Blackjack commercials. He was a freaking terrible actor in them.

politicizing food is great and all (oh wait, it's actually <i>retarded</i>) until you take your I'm A Badass act to the doctor one day and he tells you the crap you eat is literally killing you. I guess those people should just man up and buy the latest thing you saw on TV, though.

Ha ha keep eating high calorie nutrient void "food" and see where that gets ya.

Un-be-kown to guys like you people are waking up and demanding real food. The whole food industry is growing by a large% a year while the fast dead food industry is growing by about 3% a year.

But carry on pizza boy. You so smart...

hating on franchise pizza is more than a little silly.
the idea it to appease the masses and get them to buy your product.

in that way the franchise works really well and makes a lot of money.
there are plenty of restaurants with really good food but they go out of business or don't make a lot of money because they don't market or appease customers well.
of course there are also those that choose not to expand to avoid watering down the overall business.

there will always be some place that does something better, but the idea is to be successful as well as having a quality product.
PJ's isn't my favorite pizza chain but it has a good product. i still have yet to try Domino's new pizza but that's due to it being far away from my house and not wanting to drive so far when Pizza hut,PJ's and a few Italian places with great deep dish pizza are closer.

http://www.franchisedirect.com/foodfranchises/healthfoodrestaurantfranchiseindustryreport/14/265

it's the same cycle every ten years.
people hear about the damaging affects of certain good, they swear to cut back, the trend gets started, they get tired of restraining themselves or their job forces them to places where they can't sustain the good eating habits and they go right back to what they did before.

fast food is always going to trump healthier eating because fast food is so convenient to acquire and so readily available at almost every corner.

I just make my own pizza. It's not that hard to do. Making the dough takes a little time, but it's good exercise,
and all fresh ingredients with no preservatives, hydrogenated oils, or other weird ****. And I put tons more
toppings and cheese on mine than you'd get at a pizza joint. Best pizza in the world.

i did read the links, this same thing happens in cycles all the time.
no different from the electric car, the hybrid, diet fads & etc.
people are people and they always revert back to comfortable habits.

it's good to see healthier food coming into the forefront of the market and making it's mark. but i just don't see it staying significantly relevant as there are far too many temptations out there that are more readily available.

people are cooking less and less and relying on restaurants more and more.
a lot of people don't even bother to teach their kids how to cook.
you're going to have far more McDonald's on your street than a Subway or Tendergreens.

best post in the thread..

let me add Manning made a deal the Papa could not refuse.. or maybe the other way around..

I doubt there is much if any CASH involved.. Other than the actual expenses of setting up shops.. But I'll bet there are little if any franchise fees..

Win Win Papa gets name rec, and loads of free advertising and Manning makes a boat load of money..

Sounded like preaching to me and from some of the other responses of the

If he thought he could make money selling healthy food I suspect he would be in that market.

Since there seems not to be any in DEN sounds like it is not a viable franchise at this time.

Real food costs money.

The cheap fast food will be much more expensive in the long run when you start paying the doctor.

But I get not everyone will see the value here.

But as people get sicker and sicker from mal nourishment due to eating empty calories they will come around. Not to mention the taste is soooo good.

I agree. I have my own wheat field in my small backyards. Do you know how cool it is to walk between the 3 foot high stalks of wheat and run my hand through it like I am Gladiator from that movie scene? Then I have my cow for the dairy to make cheese. I slaughter the mother ****er so I could have some tasty meat on my personal pizza.
Making my own is healthy and I know where it came from...my backyard in surburbia. Neighbors love it when the cow is gone but hate the sound of it either mooing before the slaughter or me taking the dull 6 inch knife to its throat. I am going to try to improve on that next time.

Wood burning pizza in the backyard would be cool, though.

Let me add most of those working in any Pizza Joint, or for that matter any fast food places or restaurants are kids making money while in school. At least in any ones I have been in. Let me add spouses of military are a big group that work in them where I live.

If those owners had not invested money opening them a lot more folks would be unemployed.

BTW Papa John IIRC does not own those businesses he franchises them to local owners.

So not sure why some of you are all that pissed other than maybe you do not own them.
