Papa John's set to launch in Casablanca, Morocco

The brand announced the opening of a new restaurant in Morocco.

Following Egypt & Tunisia, Morocco will be the third country in Africa to boast a Papa John's franchise.

Moroccan-based Planet Pizza Inc. has the exclusive development rights for the Papa John's brand in the country and plans to build 20 stores in Morocco.

"We are honored to be a part of bringing Papa John's to Morocco. There is a strong demand here for high-quality pizzas and friendly service," said Bensouda, CEO of Planet Pizza.

"Papa John's fresh, never frozen hand-tossed original dough, fresh-packed tomato sauce and cheese made from high-quality mozzarella make a truly better pizza."

"The Papa John's brand continues to grow and we are pleased to extend our growth with Bensouda and Planet Pizza," said Tim O'Hern, Senior Vice President & Chief Development Officer of Papa John's International, Inc.

"We now have over 5,000 restaurants in 45 countries and territories, including over 1,600 internationally, and we are very proud to add Morocco as our newest country."
