WHAT’S IN THAT PIZZA?
Papa Roni’s is proud to partner with Barberton and Archbishop Hoban football programs. When we began feeding the Archbishop Hoban football team as part of a sponsorship program in 2015, we could not have foreseen what is unfolding this season.
Part of our sponsor deal involved providing pizza for the team after each home game. Papa Roni’s owner, Bob Wilson, says, “Call it a coincidence, but ever since we’ve been doing this, Hoban has won every state title.” Even with the jump to Division II this year, they’ve already advanced to the Regional Semi-final, which will be played Friday Nov 10th.
But there’s more to this story. This year, we struck a deal with the Barberton Band Boosters to provide them with pizza for fund raising re-sale at Magics football games. And what has happened since Papa Roni’s Pizza became a part of Barberton football?…. Well, the Magics have posted an amazing 10-0 undefeated season, and the school has advanced to the playoffs for only the fourth time since the inception of the playoff system.
As a result, we want to show our thanks, and reward the fans of these two schools for their success with an incredible offer.

Correction: In the Akron Beacon Journal article on 11/12/17 the article incorrectly states that Papa Roni’s is providing the Barberton Band Boosters with pizza for free. The pizzas that we provide the boosters are discounted in order for them to raise funds for the bands.
