Around here they have customer appreciation days, every 3rd Saturday of the month, $5 large pizzas. "Unadvertised special" usually and you have to ask when you call.

Worth asking about anyway...

Papa John'* can definitely be good, but what ticks me off is that I think Papa Murphy'* is better, but they only sell prepared pizza'* -you take and bake, which doesn't quite work for me when it comes to lunch break from work.

Coming from someone who has been working in the industry for six years, shi(f)t happens. For those who just cannot simply understand how it could possibly take so long to get their food, try working in the industry THEN just maybe you'll understand. It could be any number of things such as

1. The roads SUCK because of snow.
2. There'* a rush that was unexpected due to a large sum of pickup orders/dine-ins. You're not the only customer they're serving. There could be 30 orders ahead of yours placed within a few minutes apart. They could have all been deliveries.
3. If you live close to the place, just go PICK IT UP!
4. If it'* busier than planned, you can't always get people to come in when you call. it'* a pizza place, it'* not their life.
5. It'* only food.


We're not mind readers. When you're planning to do 1,400 for an entire day, and you actually do double that, YEAH there'* going to be late orders. You can't staff for maximum sales everyday. It'* not going to happen. If it were me managing, yeah, the order would have been free. "I'm sorry you're pissed off at me, have a free pizza." Basically when you listen to people complain to you all day about this and that, you just can't care anymore. This is the reason why I'm quitting within the next few weeks. You get paid barely anything to get stressed out beyond what anyone should be expected to put up with. If you haven't worked in one of these places, then you really have no idea.


/end of rant.

I have worked in that industry before i did for almost a year. Cedar rapids isn't that big and theres two papa johns in my town. So i don' see how they could be that busy to have my pizza be two hours late. Ive worked at two pizza places and a diner. But even if they were busy that gives them no reason to be rude to the customer. Where I worked the customer was always first and (most of the time) right.
