With only 4 days to go until the Broncos-Patriots AFC showdown, the Brady-Manning rivalry is heating up and now it’s extending into the kitchen.  Papa Gino’s, official pizza of the New England Patriots and long-time New England pizza icon, is having a bit of fun on social media with Peyton and his Papa John’s ties.  The company is fully supporting Brady and his Patriots teammates with clever Facebook posts and jabs at Manning, a Papa John’s spokesperson. In addition, Papa Gino’s has taken the rivalry message to its restaurants, outfitting team members with clever t-shirts, such as “We have great pizza and football and Denver has thin air.”

 

Pizza and football are a natural pairing and Papa Gino’s is enjoying the Patriots run.  During this past AFC Saturday playoff game versus Indianapolis, the company’s sales were up 8.5 percent from one year ago.  As New England braces for another Brady-Manning showdown, Papa Gino’s is backing its team and having fun in the process. After all, as one of their jabs rightfully states, “Our QB is better than yours. And so is our pizza.” 

 

Thanks for your time.

 

Best regards,
