Pizza chain Papa John's today announced the launch of its own app for the fourth generation Apple TV, which will let customers create and order pizzas within the app with a special discount price of 25 percent on each order placed on Apple's set-top box. The app marks the first of its kind on Apple TV for a national restaurant brand focusing on placing food orders.

The app includes Papa John's full menu of pizzas, sides, drinks, and desserts, with a full customizable pizza topping creator available as well. In order to provide an easy check-out process, users can sign into an existing Papa John's account to automatically provide an address, payment information, and gain access to saved favorite meals.

High-definition Television

“Pizza and entertainment are a natural fit,” said “Papa John” Schnatter, Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Papa John's. “With the launch of our Apple TV app, we’re hoping to make family movie night and friend gatherings around the TV even more enjoyable by delivering the same quality product and experience our customers expect in a convenient and interactive way.”

Once users begin ordering on the app, they can revisit past orders to simply re-order the same thing, or start an all-new meal selection process with Papa John's aim for creating a "conversational" food ordering experience in the living room. The app is compatible only with the fourth generation Apple TV, and will begin rolling out wide today.

With tools like this there will be less need for dedicated employees to take phone orders. That of course means fewer jobs for teenagers or collage students. Fewer people working for the company and more profits for the executives that park profits overseas and avoid paying taxes. Fewer taxes paid; less money available for fixing roads, bridges, medical care for our vets and older text books for your children.
Sounds like a win-win for only a few.
In this particular case, a Papa John's In-Store Team Member does more than taking orders on the phone. All employees including drivers are required to learn how to talk to customers on the phone. Bigger stores I seen don't practice this rule. However on a typical Friday (in my experience), the ratio between online orders and phone ones are 10:1. It gives us more time actually make the pizzas and use the lines to contact customers in which we had issues regarding location, messed up orders, payment, etc. Essentially, in my average day of work there before I quit for college, there was one In-Store and two drivers (waiting for their delivery # to bake) at the front on the phone but everyone else had other responsibilities.
