The popularity of the program quickly expanded in 2010 to reward all Wisconsin residents with $.85 Papa Burger® Single. This year, the company extended the Perfect Pair offer to all of America with the first announcement on January 13, 2011, during the Divisional Playoffs. The offer was then extended on January 20, 2011, to the Conference Championships.
