The Parade is a game element first introduced in Papa's Pancakeria. As the roster of customers earning awards (bronze, silver, gold) increases during the course of gameplay, the number of participants of the parade grows. Customers who are workers in other games ride floats representing their respective restaurants.
Foodini leads the parade, whether or not he is unlocked in the game. Your float (depending on what game you are playing) follows and after that, Jojo and the closers appear. Regular customers appear in between restaurant floats, with gold-star customers first, silver-star customers second, and bronze-star customers last. Beginning in Papa's Sushiria, Kingsley leads a group of his Customerpalooza winners.

- All customers that have Star Customer Awards (e.g. gold) can appear in a group at once in Papa's Pancakeria.
- On the first day of Christmas, Santa will appear in the Silver Customer Awards parade before the day is started, even though he is still not unlocked yet.
- Jojo is the leader of the Closers during the parade sequences, excluding Papa's Pizzeria HD, where Sarge Fan is the leader instead; Papa's Hot Doggeria HD, where Bertha is the leader instead; and Papa's Scooperia/HD/To Go!, where Whippa is the leader instead.

- This glitch has been fixed as of Papa's Pizzeria HD.
- There used to be a glitch in Papa's Scooperia/HD/To Go!, where after you unlocked Peggy, Taylor will be on the Papa's Hot Doggeria float instead. This glitch has been fixed as of version 1.0.1.
- There was an error in the parade in the new To Go! games, where if you replay the parade after you finished the first parade, the parade for Star Customers and KCP winners will disappear.
- Before Papa's Wingeria, The Romano Family Quartet walked together, instead on the roof of their tour bus.
- In Papa's Donuteria To Go!, Rudy does not appear on the Papa's Cheeseria float. Instead, he appears with the rest of the Closers.
