Papa John's is growing globally with a plan to open more stores in Israel.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Papa John’s Pizza remains focused on global growth by opening its first store in Israel. Anyone that is stopping through Tel Aviv will now be able to experience the third largest pizza delivery company in the world.
“We are very excited about bringing Papa John’s to Israel,” Assaf Greenberg, owner of PJI Pizza Ltd. said. “There is a strong demand in Israel for Papa John’s high-quality pizzas, fast and friendly service, all with great value to consumers. Our hand-tossed fresh dough, fresh-packed tomatoes and 100% real cheese made from high quality mozzarella make a truly better pizza.”
Greenberg is expected to help open 10 Papa John’s restaurants in Israel over the next few years.
“The Papa John’s brand continues to grow and we are pleased to extend our growth with Assaf as he opens his first restaurant in Tel Aviv,” said Tim O’Hern, senior vice president & chief development officer of Papa John’s International, Inc. “We are looking forward to introducing everyone in Israel to our quality ingredients and our better pizza.”
Papa John’s opened its first international store 18 years ago, and now has over 4,800 restaurants in over 40 countries. Papa John’s will be opening soon in Spain, and Papa John’s International continues to look for potential franchisees around the globe.
