ATLANTA – Three Ballpark Center at The Battery Atlanta was named the location of the new Papa John’s International Inc. headquarters.

Metro Atlanta will be home to the company’s marketing, communications, customer experience, operations, HR, diversity, equity and inclusion, communications, financial planning and analysis, investor relations and development functions. A state-of-the-art test kitchen will serve as Papa John’s center for driving menu innovation. The modern space will encompass a total of 60,000 square feet, according to the company.

Papa John’s IT, supply chain, accounting and legal teams will remain in the Louisville, Ky., offices, the company said. Papa John’s also maintains an international headquarters office outside of London.

“Our new Atlanta headquarters is the outcome of a process we began in late 2019 as an investment in our long-term growth and delivers on our purpose, values, and strategic business priorities,” said Rob Lynch, president and chief executive officer of Papa John's. “We’re excited to expand in Atlanta — a vibrant city that’s home to several QSR brands and provides incredible access to a deep, diverse talent pool.”

Papa John’s is the third corporate headquarters to be located within The Battery Atlanta, following the Comcast regional headquarters and the thyssenkrupp North American headquarters.

“Papa John’s chose Metro Atlanta for their new headquarters due to the energetic and diverse community, world-class innovation, deep talent pool and accessibility through the world-class airport,” said Marvin Boakye, chief people and diversity officer at Papa John’s. “We’re thrilled to open this office and look forward to growing our existing teams and embracing the local community.”
