Papa John's Buffalo Chicken Pizza Earns the 2013 Nation's Restaurant News MenuMasters Award for Best Limited-Time Offer

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - March 1, 2013 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Adding to its list of recent prestigious industry awards, Papa John's International (NASDAQ: PZZA) this week was honored by Nation's Restaurant News with its 2013 MenuMasters Award in the category of Best Limited-Time Offer for its Buffalo Chicken Pizza.

"We are honored to have this very popular pizza recognized by Nation's Restaurant News," said John Schnatter, Papa John's Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Our franchisees, R&D and marketing teams, along with many other departments worked collaboratively to develop, market and launch our Buffalo Chicken Pizza, so this truly is a systemwide achievement. ‘Better Ingredients. Better Pizza.' is what we strive for every day. It's both thrilling and humbling when our efforts are recognized by consumers and throughout the industry."

Papa John's rolled-out its Buffalo Chicken Pizza as an LTO at more than 3,000 restaurants in the U.S. last April. It proved so popular with consumers that the company introduced it again in September to kick off the NFL season. Since then, Papa John's Buffalo Chicken Pizza has launched in several international markets, including the United Kingdom, Bahrain, Oman, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates.

"When selecting MenuMasters awardees, we don't only take into consideration culinary ingenuity, but also the likely impact of the candidates on foodservice as a whole," Nation's Restaurant News Senior Food Editor, Bret Thorn said in a press release announcing the award winners. "This year's winners are a great mix of terrific new proteins, creative flavor combinations and adjustments to menus that are likely to pave the way for further innovation."
