WHAT’S IN THAT PIZZA?
Pizza Business Has Interesting Connection to Hoban and Barberton Football Programs
When Barberton-based Papa Roni’s Pizza and Ice Cream began feeding the Archbishop Hoban football team as part of a sponsorship program in 2015, they could not have foreseen what is unfolding this season.
Part of their sponsor deal involved providing pizza for the team after each home game. Papa Roni’s owner, Bob Wilson, says, “Call it a coincidence, but ever since we’ve been doing this, Hoban has won every state title.” Even with the jump to Division II this year, they’ve already advanced to the Regional Semi-final, which will be played this Friday.
But there’s more to this story. This year, Papa Roni’s struck a deal with the Barberton Band Boosters to provide them with pizza for fund raising re-sale at Magics football games. And what has happened since Papa Roni’s Pizza became a part of Barberton football?…. Well, the Magics have posted an amazing 10-0 undefeated season, and the school has advanced to the playoffs for only the fourth time since the inception of the playoff system.
As a result, Papa Roni’s wants to show their thanks, and reward the fans of these two schools for their success with an incredible offer.
Fans can present their post-season playoff game ticket stubs at Papa Roni’s for the following discounts.
Ticket from any postseason game = $3 Discount – Large Pizza
Tickets from 4 postseason games = FREE Large Pizza
The school that advances the deepest into the playoffs will win a Pizza and Pasta Party, courtesy of Papa Roni’s, for the entire football team, its coaches/staff, the band members, and the dance team and cheerleaders.
The other school’s team, coaches, etc. will win an Ice Cream Party to celebrate their success.
