Papa Murphy’s Is The First National Pizza Brand to Serve Chicken Raised Without Antibiotics

VANCOUVER, Wash., July 18, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Papa Murphy’s Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:FRSH) announced that beginning today all of its 1,500+ stores nationwide are serving chicken raised without antibiotics across its entire menu. While national restaurants across the country have talked about serving chicken raised without antibiotics, few to date have done it. Today, Papa Murphy’s 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 Holdings, Inc. 

To celebrate being the first and only national pizza brand to take this step and serve chicken raised without antibiotics, Papa Murphy’s Chicken Bacon Artichoke Gourmet Delite pizza is available online for only $9 beginning today through August 14.

Ken Calwell, president and chief executive officer of Papa Murphy’s Holdings, Inc. added: “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. 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.”

Papa Murphy’s was recognized for its dedication to serving superior quality ingredients over other pizza chains in January 2016, when it was named best in food quality among quick serve restaurants by Technomic. As part of the company’s dedication to food quality, it is also making a commitment to remove artificial flavors and colors from its menu by 2017 and is currently working to eliminate palm oil and high fructose corn syrup from menu items, a move that will be complete by fall 2016. The company’s menu does not include monosodium glutamate (MSG).
