Since Valentine’s Day falls on Thursday, a school night, local businesses that cater to the family are especially feeling the love this year. Papa Murphy’s, (the fifth largest pizza chain in the nation) is swamped with cheesy Valentine’s orders for their HeartBaker - a pizza in the form of a heart.

Papa Murphy’s is so successful on Valentine’s Day because the company capitalizes on the new trend of staying home with the family on Valentine’s Day – especially when it falls on a school night. 

In a recent survey, 90% of women with children say they’re happy to spend V-Day at home with the kids.  62% say the high prices and big crowds deter them from going out on Valentine’s Day.

Papa Murphy’s brings families together through food, people and love.
