LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 18, 2017) — Papa John’s International Inc. and Aramark are pleased to announce the opening of a new Papa John’s pizza restaurant located on the University of Kentucky's campus. The new restaurant, located at The 90 is set to open today (Aug. 18) in conjunction with the start of the fall 2017 semester. The 90, located at the corner of Hilltop and Woodland Avenue, contains UK’s primary residential dining hall serving approximately 1,000 students and faculty daily.
Students can enjoy Papa John’s “Pizza for One” personal pizzas on 8-inch, fresh, never-frozen dough, along with a number of tasty side items and desserts.
The new Papa John’s at The 90, open every day from 10:00 a.m. to midnight, has walk-in and dine-in service to provide a great atmosphere where students can eat, study or just relax with friends.
Students can use their Flex dollars associated with their UK Dining meal plan to purchase Papa John’s pizza at The 90. The Papa John’s located on Avenue of Champions rolled out a partnership with UK Dining in the spring semester of 2017 to accept Flex dollars for delivery orders, and offers a full menu.
The new Papa John’s will offer a wide variety of meal and snack options. Pizza choices include Tuscan six cheese, double bacon six cheese, garden special, the works and more. Also available are breadsticks in three flavor choices, wings in five flavor choices, and desserts including an 8-inch chocolate chip cookie and the mega chocolate chip brownie.
“We’re excited about the opening of the new Papa John’s on the University of Kentucky’s campus,” said Papa John’s Operational Vice President Lynn McQuillen. “We continuously strive to deliver a better pizza experience and we look forward to offering just that to all students and faculty on campus.”
This Papa John’s at UK represents the brand’s commitment to being a part of Kentucky’s great heritage through its support and involvement with one of the state’s premiere universities. Papa John’s also operates two additional locations inside of the University of Kentucky’s newly renovated Kroger Field.
Papa John's is the first national pizza delivery chain to announce the removal of: preservatives like BHA and BHT; cellulose and partially hydrogenated oils; artificial flavors and synthetic colors; and the removal of high-fructose corn syrup across the entire food menu.
Papa John's, headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, was selected as Pizza Brand of the Year in the 2017 Harris Poll Equitrend Rankings and recently announced that 60 percent of Papa John's domestic sales originate from digital channels.
