If you go to the Papa John's website and look at their menu, you will see that they are now offering Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, and Mountain Dew (20oz and 2L) instead of Coke products.

They have been resetting all Papa Johns and installing Pepsi coolers in my area starting as early as the beginning of last week..hard to get a damn incremental cooler right now..ugh.

There was an article on it at bevnet me thinks but basically it was due to Pepsi's brands ability to reach to the same age consumers that Papa Johns reached to especially with a powerful brand like Mt.Dew which coke has nothing viable to compete with it. It is kind of crazy now that I think of it..the only large national pizza chain that isn't pepsi is dominoes. Pizza Hut, Little Caesars, and now Papa Johns are all Pepsi. About the only bit of win we have going on in the restaraunt business which I believe coke accounts for the majority share in.

I went to their website and they still have Coke products on it. Not been to a location yet, but I find it weird that they have not switched the website to Pepsi yet.

They are probably rolling the changeover out by market. I'm pretty sure if you put in an east coast zip code, you'd see Pepsi products.

Here is what my Delaware menu looks like:

The Sierra Mist Natural is new, it wasn't there when I started this thread the other day.

They should sell more Vault.
