LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- September 3, 2013

Papa John’s, the Official Pizza Sponsor of the NFL, is making one of the best
times of year, the kickoff of the NFL season, a lot better by not just
bringing back its award-winning, hand-tossed Buffalo Chicken Pizza, but giving
consumers a free pizza offer. Now through Sunday, Sept. 15, orders of $15 or
more will earn Papa Rewards members 25 bonus points when they use the promo
code TOUCHDOWN -- enough for a free pizza.

“This is an exciting time of year for every football fan and we are pleased to
add to the excitement by offering a free pizza to our existing loyal customers
and new enrollees in the Papa Rewards loyalty program,” said John Schnatter,
Papa John’s founder, chairman and CEO. “No matter how your team fares on the
field this season, you’ll be a winner with this great offer.”

Fans can sign up for Papa Rewards by going to www.papajohns.com. Then, after
making a purchase of $15 or more using the promo code TOUCHDOWN, 25 bonus Papa
Rewards points will be deposited into their accounts for use on a future
order. The bonus points must be used by Sunday, Sept. 29.

The return of the NFL season also means the return of Denver Broncos
quarterback and Papa John’s franchisee, Peyton Manning, who is starring in a
new commercial with Schnatter. The commercial, which promotes the free pizza
offer, is the first in a series of commercials featuring Manning and Schnatter
that will run throughout the season.

“There’s no better spokesman out there than Peyton to help us get the word out
about Papa John’s,” said Schnatter. “He’s one of the most admired and
respected athletes who is very engaging with a great sense of humor, which
you’ll see in these commercials.”

Papa John’s is in the midst of a multi-year sponsorship with the NFL and is
also the Official Pizza of the Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore
Ravens, Chicago Bears, Cincinnati Bengals, Dallas Cowboys, Denver Broncos,
Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, Miami Dolphins, Minnesota Vikings, New
York Giants, New York Jets, Seattle Seahawks, St. Louis Rams, Tennessee Titans
and Washington Redskins.
