New Irish Stores Open as Papa John’s Continues European Expansion


Feb 10, 2017

Leading International pizza franchise, Papa John’s, has announced the addition of two new stores in Ireland.  The Dublin and Westport openings now take the number of Papa John’s in Ireland to 50 outlets. 

“Since set up in 1984, the Papa John’s franchise has experienced considerable growth and we now have more than 4500 outlets across the world,” confirms Joe Smith, Vice President, Global Sales & Development.  “Much of the success of Papa John’s is down to our ever-popular concept of ‘better ingredients, better pizza’.  Papa John’s is the only branded pizza chain to use 100% fresh dough, giving a better natural flavour and a unique tomato sauce is made from the best Californian tomatoes, picked and packed from vine to can in just six hours and customers just keep coming back for more!

“The latest Irish store openings are part of our strategy of continued European expansion,” continues Smith.  “It’s exciting times at Papa John’s and we are actively recruiting ambitious individuals who are hungry to become part of our success story.

“Franchisees benefit from joining a popular, established, international brand and we provide help with location selection, set up and marketing,” explains Smith.  “Thorough training is also critical and our franchisee programme is second to none, designed to ensure all new Papa John’s are up and running as quickly and smoothly as possible.

“Our most successful franchisees often own more than one Papa John’s,” explains Smith.  “Multi-operator opportunities are currently available in locations including: Poland, France, The Netherlands and throughout the rest of Europe.”
