VANCOUVER, Wash., Aug. 10, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Papa Murphy's Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:FRSH) the world's leading take and bake pizza franchise, today announced that the company has selected Deloitte Digital, a digital consulting agency within Deloitte Consulting LLP, to enhance its online ordering and precision marketing efforts. Under the agreement, Deloitte Digital will redesign Papa Murphy's website, including adding advanced online ordering capabilities to improve the customer experience.

"Teaming with Deloitte Digital underscores our commitment to adopting the latest digital technology tools and methodologies to provide a more user friendly and reliable customer experience and enable the growth potential of precision marketing," said Papa Murphy's President and CEO, Ken Calwell. "At Papa Murphy's, we are focused on delivering fresh, customizable, delicious pizza to help busy families solve the dinnertime dilemma and we look forward to launching a new ecommerce platform that will help further this mission."
The new ecommerce platform will also better reflect Papa Murphy's brand personality and is designed with unique features to increase customer engagement.
