Just ahead of the back-to-school season, Papa Johns board member and franchisee Shaquille O’Neal rode in a customized school bus around Atlanta to make a surprise visit to a Papa Johns restaurant, where he talked with team members about the importance of continuing their education and invited them to earn a degree, with all tuition and fees paid by Papa Johns, through the Dough & Degrees program.

Dough & Degrees gives Papa Johns team members the opportunity to attend college and earn their degree at absolutely no cost to them. Papa Johns covers tuition, books and fees – all paid for upfront by Papa Johns, so there are no out-of-pocket costs to team members.

  • College credit for on-the-job training
  • Access to top-notch academic advising and guidance from learning experts
  • All books and fees covered by Papa Johns
