Former Steelers running back Jerome Bettis has bought three Papa John's pizza outlets in Pittsburgh.

Papa John's announced the deal on Thursday, saying Bettis is partnering with Bajco Group, which owns 12 Papa John's stores in the area. Bettis and Bajco plan to open more outlets in the next couple of years.

Bettis was drafted by the Los Angeles Rams out of Notre Dame in 1993 but finished his career in Pittsburgh, where he helped the Steelers win Super Bowl XL before he retired.

Papa John's is promoting Bettis' investment by offering a 36 percent discount, reflecting his jersey number, to customers who use the promotional code “PJBUS36” when ordering online from Papa John's in the Pittsburgh and South Bend, Ind., areas.
