Over the next three years, Papa Johns opened 40 restaurants in Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana, and another 62 restaurants in 1991 in Michigan, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Illinois.
Over the next two years, Papa Johns development exploded when 287 restaurants opened in an additional 19 states. Over the next four years, the company continued its phenomenal growth by opening more than 1,100 restaurants.
In 1998, Papa Johns opened its first international restaurant in Mexico City. Today, Papa John’s operates in all 50 states and 30+ international markets.
Quality training was also key to growth and development and so in 2005, we opened the first Papa John’s training centre outside the US.
In the UK, Papa Johns relocated its local head office functions to its newly refurbished UK and European campus in Milton Keynes in August 2010. The facility, which took eight months to complete, now houses over 100 employees on-site and includes a QCC which is home to our fresh pizza dough factory.
