Would you pay extra to get your pizza faster? Papa John's is betting on it.


If you've ever felt like you would do anything to make your pizza arrive at your house faster, Papa John's might be able to help you out.

The pizza chain announced Wednesday an optional "PapaPriority" fee that customers can pay to send their orders to the front of the line. The Associated Press reported the fee would be $2.99. though Papa John's said it could vary by date, time and the company's discretion. It launched in select locations, but the chain was looking to expand the test soon.

PapaPriority does not guarantee that your ...delivery will be faster than normal.

The fine print

The fee doesn't guarantee the pizza will arrive within any time frame, so this isn't similar to Domino's "You got 30 minutes" campaign. It's also limited to five orders total per night for each Papa John's location, so not everyone will get to be sent to the front of the line.

This inevitably means some people's orders will get demoted in line, but Papa John's said the option has gotten "great customer reception" so far in test runs. 

But not every customer was impressed.

Some saw the move as greedy.

Would you pay $3 to get your pizza faster?
