Papa John’s eyes 250 restaurants in Germany over next seven years

Its franchise partner already opened its first seven Papa John’s in Magdeburg and Leipzig.

Papa John's announced plans to grow in Germany, eyeing 250 restaurants over the next seven years through its franchise partner PJ Western Group.

PJ Western, one of the pizza firm’s largest global franchisees in Central and Eastern Europe, already opened its first seven Papa John’s in Magdeburg and Leipzig and plans to open another six stores in Halle and Merseburg by the end of the summer.

“We are excited to expand our business farther west into the heart of Europe,” said Christopher Wynne, CEO and founder of the PJ Western Group, which currently operates 200 Papa John’s restaurants, and ten dough production plants in Europe and Asia. “We are excited to bring great pizza and innovation to the German pizza market.”

PJ Western is looking for new franchisees to accelerate the planned expansion into Germany.

“This expansion into Germany follows a record year of sales and growth that has positioned Papa John’s to further accelerate development in international markets. We are excited to expand our partnership with PJ Western. Chris’ team has proven over and over again its ability to successfully develop new markets,” added Jack Swaysland, Papa John’s chief operating officer for international.
