The Papa John’s Foundation has teamed up with board member and franchisee, Shaquille O’Neal, to launch the new Shaq-a-Roni pizza - designed to deliver a bigger pizza experience while also supporting communities in need through The Papa John’s Foundation for Building Community.
The Shaq-a-Roni features an extra-large pizza topped with extra mozzarella cheese and extra pepperoni, then cut into our largest slices ever, for a bite that’s sure to be a slam dunk. Starting June 29 through August 23, 2020, for every Shaq-a-Roni pizza sold, one dollar will be donated to The Papa John’s Foundation for Building Community to benefit organizations like Boys and Girls Clubs of America and UNCF (United Negro College Fund).
Shaquille O’Neal and The Papa John’s Foundation for Building Community teamed up for an extra special surprise for the Atlanta-area families that helped Papa John’s and Shaq create the new campaign for the Shaq-a-Roni launch. The NBA Hall of Famer himself told the featured families that Papa John’s was giving each family pizza for a year (in the form of a $780 gift card) and each child $1,000 per year for the next four years for education expenses like books and transport.
