Papa John’s – the third largest pizza delivery chain in the world, has had a presence in Hyderabad for several years. However, the acquisition of Pizza Corner towards the end of 2014 helped it increase its reach with a total 9 stores spread across the city. I was invited to their Gachhibowli store to preview their special Valentines Day combos.
Papa John’s is offering special heart shaped Veg and Non-Veg Pizza combos. The combo includes one medium pizza (9” Heart-shaped Margherita Pizza or Chicken Pepperoni Pizza), a pet-bottle of cold drinks, and a surprise gift. I tried both the Pizzas, and to be honest, they were quite decent. One of the distinguishing features of Papa Johns – a pickled Pepperoncini delivered with every box of pizza, is being offered in India too. However, the signature butter sauce has been discontinued as it didn’t find many takers in the ketchup loving Indians. The Valentine’s special combos will be available till the 16th, and are priced at Rs. 399 for veg and Rs. 499 for non-veg (taxes extra).
