Just weeks after Pizza Hut execs projected their stores would top $2 billion in online sales by the end of the year, Papa John's announced they had already surpassed the figure.
Papa John's hit $1 billion in online ordering sales in 2008 and executives at the firm predicted it might take another three years to hit $2 billion. Papa John's attributes their success to their ongoing improvements to the company’s website and upgrading the customer ordering experience. Features like 24-hour online ordering availability, a Spanish-language version of the company website and a separate mobile website for ordering at mobile.papajohns.com helped Papa John’s double their results in just one year.
In a separate statement, No. 1 Pizza.company Pizza Hut, did not give figures for their total online ordering sales, but the company did say that online ordering was the fastest-growing sales segment for their stores in 2009.
