Papa Murphy’s is offering a special price for its Chicken Bacon Artichoke Delite to mark the pizza chain's transition to antibiotic-free chicken.
VANCOUVER, Wash. — Papa Murphy’s officials announced on July 18 that its 1,500-plus locations nationwide are serving chicken raised without antibiotics across its entire menu. According to Papa Murphy’s it is the first national pizza brand to serve chicken raised without antibiotics.
“Introducing chicken raised without antibiotics to our menu is a natural step for our brand, and we are excited to offer customers delicious, vegetarian fed chicken that they can feel good about serving their families,” said Brandon Solano, chief marketing officer of Papa Murphy’s.
Papa Murphy’s will offer an online order of its Chicken Bacon Artichoke Gourmet Delite pizza for $9 online from July 18 through August 14 to mark this switch from chicken raised without antibiotics.
“At Papa Murphy’s, food quality is an integral part of our heritage, concept and our overall culinary strategy that centers on exceptionally fresh ingredients, and sets us apart from other national pizza chains,” Ken Calwell, president and CEO said. “In our 35-year history, we have always served only the highest quality ingredients including 100 percent whole-milk mozzarella grated in-store each day, butcher quality meat with no added fillers and fresh, whole vegetables hand sliced in-store daily.”
