In honor of Harden receiving the 63rd MVP Award, “MVPizzas” will be limited to the first 63 carry-out orders (one per customer), exclusively at the Papa John’s restaurant at 8588 Westheimer Road, beginning at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, June 26. Orders will be available for carryout only, because like Harden, these pizzas do not travel.

“On behalf of all Papa John’s Houston stores, I’d like to congratulate our partner James Harden on his prolific season and well-deserved MVP trophy,” said Keith Sullins, Houston Papa John’s franchisee. “We’re excited to celebrate this 63rd MVP award with 63 ‘MVPizzas’ for local pizza lovers, and delicious discounts for Houston fans today only.”

Fans who are not among the first 63 to pick up an ‘MVPizza’ in the store can get in on the celebration by entering the promo code “HARDEN” at checkout for 50% off the menu price of any pizza purchase on June 26. This promotion is only available to customers ordering online from the 54 participating Houston stores.
