Papa John’s will be the exclusive sponsor of the Meeting Rooms 101 and 102, which will now be known as the “Papa John’s Party Room 1” and “Papa John’s Party Room 2” or “Papa John’s Party Rooms,” respectively.

Papa John’s will become the exclusive provider for pizza in the areas of Retail, Delivery, and Dine-In at the Aquatic Center.
