The Mayor of Solihull opened a new Papa John’s store in December.

Papa John’s fans in Shirley, Solihull can rejoice as a new store opens up on Stretford road. The town’s mayor, Stuart Davies, opened it officially on the 14th December 2019. There are already a team of 20 from the local area that work together to makes its fresh, tasty pizzas.

As part of its promotion, 200 pizzas were given to hungry customers on the launch day. And, for a limited period, it’s running special offers like £6.00 for a large pizza when collected.

Amit Abhol (Rana) joined Papa John’s a couple of years ago and has since opened eight stores:

“We are really excited to have opened our new store in Shirley and thank Stuart Davis for his attendance at our opening! The store is in a great location and we anticipate welcoming a high footfall from the mixed community in the area. We have parking right outside for convenient collection, plus we deliver locally too.”

He continued:

“Papa John’s top quality pizza known for its “BETTER INGREDIENTS. BETTER PIZZA.” concept, which means only the freshest quality ingredients and fresh dough – never frozen – is used to create a better natural flavour. We are looking forward to continuing to deliver on that promise to keep our new customers in Shirley coming back for more!”

Rana used to be employed by another leading pizza company. Over 15 years, he worked his way up from taking orders to regional operations director but decided to move to Papa John’s so he could run multiple stores.

Papa John’s prides itself on using ‘better ingredients’ to make ‘better pizza’. It’s the only branded UK pizza chain to use fresh dough that’s never frozen and a tomato sauce made from premium Californian tomatoes.

It currently provides top-quality pizza from over 5,000 stores in more than 40 markets and is offering an attractive franchise opportunity to ambitious individuals who want to be a part of its UK expansion.
