Via the application, consumers can order any of Mr. Jim’s pizza products, find the nearest location and read detailed nutritional information.
Additionally, the company is running an incentive for consumers who download the application.
Customers who download the application and participate in the company’s Pick Six contest before April 15 will be entered to win a $500 grand prize. There will be one winner.
Consumers can also enter the contest and select six numbers on the app and submit them.
Each week there will be a drawing from the winning entries for a free pizza.

“We’re getting the word out about the app via Facebook, our TV commercials and it’s on all our print media,” he said. “We also emailed our customer database.”
