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.
