LAKE CITY, Fla. (AP) — The battle for pizza supremacy has taken a wrong turn in Florida.
Two managers of a Domino's Pizza restaurant in Lake City, in north-central Florida, have been charged with burning down a rival Papa John's location. The motive? Police say one of the men admitted that he believed with his competitor out of the way, more pizza lovers would flock to his restaurant.

Funny, they both suck equally as much.
That’s brilliant. In the clinker, it’ll be fun to explain to Bubba what you’re in for.
Big mistake. They should have burned down the Chinese take-out places. /s
Dominoes = processed & frozen
Papa John’s = fresh
I have a friend who is a pizza nut. She told me this.
Good to know; I haven’t ordered from Domino’s in years. Here in MA there are chains like Pizz. Uno, Papa Gino’s, Bertucci’s, Pizza Hut etc. but in most cases the pizza isn’t spectacular. But there are local guys who can do a good
job (like one place I go to that makes great pizza and
sells PBR drafts for $1/16 oz. Great place to watch football!)
“pizza workers burned down rival store”
Nice how they didn’t bring the corporate image into it. I wonder how much that cost dominos
Good thing for them that they didn’t mess with the Godfather’s pizza. They’d be sleeping with the fishes.
Were these 2 mindless arsonists just young, frustrated marxists destroying their competitors instead of a smart, creative solution for more business? Just wondering...
They promise they can burn down a rival store in 30 minutes or less.LOLOL!
They could have pitched tents and ‘Occupied Papa Johns’ and spouted the corporate greed moniker. Works every time.....;)
no snow in Fl either....
Do The Right Thing.
Well, OK, there’s the twenty years in the slammer for arson thing, but other than that it was a pretty sound business plan. I mean, who doesn’t look at a burning building with people screaming and sirens shrieking and fire engines lighting up the block with flashing red lights and NOT think “Wow. I feel like a pizza right now.”
And as part of their prison punishment the only food they are allowed to eat is burnt pizza topped with crispy anchovies.
I’d be interested in the results of an IQ test or two.
Floriduh pizza ping
DOMINO’s pizza should be punishment enough!
I'll take PapaJohns over Dominos any day.
Cheech´s Pizza in Los Feliz. Hmm-hmm.
shes wrong. I worked at a dominos. Nothing came in frozen.
Processed? ya. Frozen. No.
I remember that! And if you’re not careful, PIZZA is gonna send out for YOU! (Spaceballs)
3rd world status, here we come!
Hopefully the cartoons I posted came out. If not:
Neither of them served pizza.
Also, wasn’t that George Harrison?
We makka U pizza U no canna refuse...
Anyway, even though I like Herman Cain for president, can't say I'm a big fan of his Godfather's Pizza or any other of the big pizza chains like Pizza the Hut, Papa Ginos, Papa Johns and Little Caesars. I don't mind a slice from Sbarro's (the mall pizza) every now and then but even that is not my favorite.
Best chain pizza in my opinion is the Sporkie from Bertuccis.
Papa Murphy’s take-and-bake is very good.
I like the Sporkie from Bertucci’s myself. Like their salad.
Papa Gino’s does have their own similar-to-the-sporkie pizza
now (and also a nice Greek salad but they need a smaller size.
Need to have it as side salad not meal sized)
Pizzeria Uno is OK, and I like all you can eat soup specials
but with a beer or two it can be pricey. Best to do the
two-for-you lunch special (all you can eat soup)
Never got to try Godfather’s.
Once Brad Park of the Bruins owned a couple Little Caesar’s franchises. One was nr Salem Hospital. I walk in and there
he is, in person, behind the counter talking to someone
(and yes a pic of him was on the wall). I didn’t say anything or ask for an autograph but, hey, there he was.
ooh, boss, you’re delicious!
Reminds me of the wedding chappel wars in Vegas.
Taking out the opposition.
Ditto on the Papa Murphy. With coupon-large pizza=$6. Can’t beat that. Pineapple/Canadian Bacon is my fav.
Papa Murphy’s Chicago stuffed pizza with extra cheese and sauce is my favorite.
I'd be more inclined to think of roasting marshmallows and hot dogs on a stick.................
