Peyton Manning Sells Denver-Area Papa John's Locations

08 March, 2018, 02:02 | Author: Sylvester Abbott
  • Manning who is an ambassador for the brand gave up the franchises just two days before the NFL and Papa John's ended their commercial relationship in February

These actions build on all the strengths of the Papa John's brand and include a fresh perspective around marketing driven by new media and creative partnerships, hiring a new PR partner, and bringing online a new engine to drive our Papa Rewards loyalty system. It's an interesting move for a guy who literally kissed Schnatter when he won the Super Bowl with the Broncos back in 2016.

"After six successful and rewarding years, Peyton Manning and Papa John's worldwide have sold their stake in 31 Papa John's locations which were part of a joint-venture", the Kentucky-based chain said in an emailed statement. Papa John's also has a big-name National Football League spokesman: Peyton Manning.

The company said the new owner of Manning's Denver locations plans to rehire all existing employees.

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick had kneeled during the anthem to protest what he said was police mistreatment of black men, and other players started kneeling as well.

The New York Post reported that Fox hopes to pair Manning with former Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman, who now does color commentary but would slide to the pregame show if Manning is brought aboard.

But don't expect Manning, the former Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos star, to disappear from the chain's TV commercials.

Manning will still be Papa John's celebrity spokesperson as part of a long-term agreement, the report says.

Schnatter's replacement, Steve Ritchie, said the company still has team partnerships with more than 20 National Football League franchises.

Schnatter remains a Papa John's chairman and his face still appears on the company's pizza boxes. On Feb. 28, Papa John's announced that their deal as the NFL's official pizza sponsor was ending after eight years.
