Papa John’s pizza will no longer be served at Kentucky basketball games. The former official pizza of the Cats and its ‘Better Ingredients’ will be replaced by another pizza chain at Rupp Arena’s concession stands beginning this fall.
Hunt Brothers, a Kentucky-based pizzeria with offices in Bourbon County, has taken over the exclusive rights to feed all pizza cravings in Rupp going forward. Hunt Brothers will offer a Hunk-A-Pizza — a quarter of a large pizza with the option of cheese or pepperoni — to be served at six Rupp locations on the main and upper concourses.
The Herald-Leader reports Papa John’s did not look to re-up its deal as Rupp’s pizza provider, although two Papa John’s locations will remain in Commonwealth Stadium.
