Papa Murphy’s Moving Forward Slowly

Why do consumers continue to vote Papa Murphy’s their favorite pizza chain when they don’t even have ovens in their stores?  According to Tacoma, WA based Foodservice Solutions® Grocerant Guru® Steven Johnson that answer is simple they operate at the intersection of fresh, fast, flavorful and they are authentic. That will give Papa Murphy’s new CEO Weldon Spangler a great platform to work from.

 It is important to note that Papa Murphy’s excels with discovery specifically with its Limited Time Offers (LTO’s).  It’s with the consumer in mind and expanding that halo of better for you discovery that Papa Murphy’s launched a national food delivery service partnership with Grubhub.

Papa Murphy’s Holdings, Inc. last week announced a new national delivery service through Grubhub, the nation’s leading takeout marketplace stating that “Nine company-owned stores in the Colorado and Denver area launched with the delivery service in late May, and an additional 17 franchisee-owned stores will be added over the next two weeks.”
Jean Birch, Chairman of  Papa Murphy's stated “Our product is uniquely positioned for success with delivery because pizza tastes best when it’s served right out of the oven,” says “Our pizza is made fresh in stores and ready to bake at home—making it a quick and easy solution for a home-baked dinner. We’re thrilled to partner with Grubhub to make dinner even more convenient for our customers.”
By partnering with Grubhub makes it easy for Papa Murphy’s customers order delivery—by reordering their favorite meals, ordering up to four days in advance and welcoming a new variety of payment methods, including Apple Pay, Android Pay, PayPal, eGift cards, credit cards and cash. Once a Grubhub order is placed, customers can track their order and stay in the know about their delivery through push notifications and text messages.
Consumers are dynamic not static all brands must evolve and Papa Murphy’s will continue to evolve and continue to win the hearts and minds of consumers. It's time that Papa Murphy's add more Grocerant Niche Ready-2-Eat and Heat-N-Eat fresh Food menu offereings to drive top line sales and bottom line profits.
