Papa John’s was founded in 1984 and is one of the most popular pizza chains in the United States. They take carry out and delivery orders and some stores have seating inside for dine in. Papa John’s franchises over 4,600 stores with 3,500 being in the United States alone. In 2012, upon the opening of the 4,000th store, Papa John’s gave away 4,000 free pizzas to New York City customers in celebration of the milestone.
Papa John’s has a wide variety of toppings, sauces, and flavors. You can create your own pizza or choose from some of the most popular pizzas such as John’s Favorite, The Works, Spicy Italian, BBQ Chicken Bacon, Hawaiian BBQ Chicken, Garden Fresh, and Spinach Alfredo. The pizzas come in small, medium, and large and the pieces can be cut in different dimensions. They also have appetizers, drinks, and desserts (such as a dessert pizza!)

Papa John’s Breakfast Menu Items
Papa John’s is such a well known franchise but it has yet to fully capitalize on a breakfast menu. In 2005, they gave it a shot but with only one style it didn’t catch on very much. With more options for receiving pizza these days (pick up, delivery, mobile apps to order online, etc.) and more menu choices the breakfast menu could work well for Papa John’s.
Earlier weekend hours could be prime time for families at home, church or youth groups, or a college kids who want a breakfast pizza or cinnamon rolls.

Papa John’s Most Popular Breakfast Foods
Breakfast Pizza for Meat Lovers: This breakfast dish would be olive oil based with light marinara, fluffy eggs, mozzarella, bacon, sausage, and canadian bacon. Additional toppings could be added but it is mainly for the meat lovers!
Veggie Breakfast Pizza: The breakfast would be olive oil based fluffy eggs, parmesan, cheddar, bell peppers, and grilled onions. Yum!
Steak Breakfast Pizza: This pizza is a little more simple. It focuses on the steak, mozzarella cheese, and eggs.
Bacon Breakfast Pizza: Similar to the steak breakfast pizza, the bacon pizza would be excellent with crumbled bacon, a blend of cheeses, and eggs.
Sausage Breakfast Pizza: This pizza would work well with a light marinara base, cheddar and mozzarella cheese, a blend of herbs, sausage, and fluffy eggs. It’s still a pizza, right?
Cinnamon Rolls: Papa John’s already makes great dough, so why not make some sweet cinnamon rolls for the breakfast hour?
