The Premiere Night of Spiderman 2 in the Philippines

“I really love getting free stuff! Upon entering, Papa John’s gave us a bottle of water and a slice of Papa John's pizza and a shirt from Papa John's too. They had raffle inside too for selected participants and said that if you wear the shirt on a Thursday and you decide to eat at Papa John's, the person who is wearing the shirt will get 50% off on his/her personal consumption.” From Brendz of the Grumpy Mommy Blog.

Papa John’s were honored to witness the Premiere Night of The Spiderman 2 at Greenbelt 3 last March 2014.

One of the biggest projects of Papa John’s is to be part of the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA). Papa John’s Pizza claimed the title as the “Official Pizza of the PBA”. 

PBA sponsorship became partnership-- Papa John’s is very active in joining PBA events such as: Corporate Social Responsibilities, pizza activities in every game day and support PBA in their major events. 

Terrence Romeo, Dough Kramer, Simon Atkins, Rey Gueverra and Ryan Arana supported Papa John’s in promoting their several promos. These players bear evidence that Papa John’s has a high quality standard in serving their products.  

Part of maximizing the exposure as the “Official Pizza of the PBA”, Papa John’s provided promo that suites to the taste of our customers. Presenting PBA Meal for 5 (P999) and Meal for 12 (P2499)! A complete food package from appetizers, pastas, side items to our specialty pizzas, a great promo for a BIGGER group in a LOWER price!

Aspiring to the sounds of artists such as Alicia Keys, Norah Jones and Lauryn Hill, Jhoanna is a natural fit for R’n’B and soul.  

Jhoanna first started singing as a backup vocalist at her local parish where she continues to sing as a ‘worship leader’ while also performing at weddings, community functions and fundraisers.
