Papa John’s was created by ‘Papa’ John Schnatter, who built the company, starting out from a converted broom cupboard in his father’s tavern in the US, to become a multi-national success. Currently Papa John’s has more than 4,000 stores across 33 countries.
Gareth Davies, vice president for Papa John’s UK, said: “We are delighted to be marking this special milestone, which signifies the increasing number of people experiencing our ‘Better Ingredients. Better Pizza’ philosophy across the UK. Our 200th store opening is not just a significant achievement for us in the UK, but an opportunity to thank our local customers in Glasgow for choosing Papa John’s by inviting them to share in the occasion with us.”
More than 100 new stores are expected to be opened by Papa John’s over the next few years, creating a substantial number of jobs across the UK.
Papa John's is one of the largest pizza companies in the world and is rapidly expanding in 33 markets around the globe. Papa John’s, which is renowned for its product quality, has opportunities for potential franchisees throughout the UK including the key locations of Yorkshire, Manchester, West Midlands, East Midlands, South West, North East, Wales & Scotland.
