Andreas Petrakas, brand business development manager, Planet Ice explains: “Planet Ice now serves one million customers a year across all our ice rinks in the UK and we have ambitious plans to grow, both in the UK and overseas. We first introduced Papa John’s in 2015 and pizza has now been fully integrated into our proposition in five key venues, proving particularly popular! Customers can buy tickets to skate and eat which is a great every day offering and also ‘goes down well’ for special pizza parties for birthdays or a family evening out watching one of our exciting Ice Hockey matches.”
Anthony Round, business development manager, Papa John’s confirms: “Papa John’s concept of ‘Better Ingredients, Better Pizza’ means we only use the best ingredients and fresh dough for a better natural flavour. We are delighted to be able to bring our top quality pizza to a wider audience and be associated with such a well-respected leisure brand: it’s a recipe for success.”
Papa John’s was founded in the USA in 1984 and there are now well over 300 stores across the UK and over 4,800 stores in more than 40 international markets and territories. Papa John’s is the only branded pizza chain to use only 100% fresh dough, and the company’s unique tomato sauce is made from the best Californian tomatoes, picked and packed from vine to can in just six hours.
Papa John’s, was recently named as the UK National Pizza Delivery Chain for the sixth time.
