Leading pizza franchise Papa John’s has opened a new store in the East Stand at Stadium MK in Milton Keynes.
The store will deliver to local residents seven days a week, while a dedicated kiosk will serve freshly-cooked pizza to MK Dons supporters once fans are permitted to attend football matches, concerts and other events.
What’s more, Papa John’s will not only partner with the club’s social media channels, but it will also remain sponsor of the Papa John’s Goal of the Month Award and receive substantial branding around Stadium MK.
Chairman Pete Winkelman said: “This exciting partnership with Papa John’s – one of the world’s leading pizza franchises and one local to Milton Keynes – will only add to the Stadium MK experience once our supporters are allowed to return home.”
Justin Gilbert, director of business development at Papa John’s UK, confirmed: “It’s a win-win situation, as everyone loves football and pizza so teaming up makes perfect sense.
“Milton Keynes is where our QCC and fresh dough manufacturing base is located, and we have always been keen to support local community activities in the area.
“As well as the kiosk and new store at the stadium, our goal was to strike a deal between MK Dons and Papa John’s to provide significant investment for the football club and we are delighted to have kicked this off in fine style.”
