Papa John's To Supply 2,500 Pizzas to Naval Academy for Super Bowl Party
The Annapolis restaurants are preparing for the surge in business on Super Bowl Sunday as they will provide pizza, wings and more to midshipmen as well as local residents.
Super Bowl Sunday is always a busy day for pizza places, as many expect to sell thousands of pizzas and wings. But this year is extra special for Annapolis area Papa John's restaurants.
"We are official partners with the Naval Academy, the Baltimore Ravens, and the NFL," said Ray Sears, operating partner of the Papa John's restaurants in Annapolis, in an email to Patch. "The midshipmen have voted us as the preferred pizza for the Super Bowl this season."
Papa John's was reportedly asked to supply 2,500 pizzas for a Super Bowl party for thousands of midshipmen at Dahlgren Hall.
Sears said he's purchased additional ovens, a van and heaters in preparation for the big day. In addition, he's coordinated drivers and logistics between 11 locations.
"It should be a huge production on Sunday," he said. "We certainly hope to bring smiles to all of our local Ravens fans and midshipmen and help muster up enough excitement to support the team and bring home a Super Bowl win!"
