A further 20 restaurants are planned for Southern France.

The new restaurant is located in the 9th District of Lyon and is owned and operated by Vantage Tourism and Entertainment, a franchise business partner for Papa John’s International, Inc. with more than 45 restaurants in Egypt.

Vantage director of operations Ludovic Baudequin said, "We are very excited to open our first restaurant in Lyon, the world capital of gastronomy. We are convinced that the quality of our ingredients and pizzas will exceed the expectations of our future customers.”

The entry into Southern France continues Papa John’s expansion in Europe. Papa John’s International has over 360 restaurants in the U.K.

Restaurants in the Confluence and Francheville areas of Lyon will also open in the coming weeks.
