PHOENIX — From throwing around opposing quarterbacks to starring on the big screen, former ASU football player Greg Joelson has made quite a name for himself since leaving Tempe back in 1988.
But Joelson, who won a Super Bowl in 1991 as a member of the San Francisco 49ers, has come back to town to give football fans a new reason to cheer.
This week, the former ASU linebacker opened up a new Papa Murphy’s location Monday located in central Phoenix’s Squaw Peak Plaza.
As owner of Papa Murphy’s, the country’s largest and fastest growing take ‘n’ bake pizza chain, Joelson has expressed a strong interest in giving back to the community in ways that go well beyond just serving pizza.
“We are ready to go, not just to serve great, fresh pizza but to make a difference in our community,” Joelson said in a press release. The store is already working with local causes such as Phoenix Children’s Hospital, VetTix and St. Vincent de Paul.”
