Papa John's signs agreements to open 57 restaurants in Canada

Papa John's International, Inc. has announced that it has concluded development agreements to open 57 additional Papa John's restaurants throughout Canada in a further move to expand its brand around the world.

According to the information provided, the agreements aim to have 20 restaurants set up throughout the Atlantic Provinces by franchisee PJ Atlantic Franchising Ltd., and a further 10 to be built in Saskatchewan by MJ Taylor Holding Company. Furthermore, Bajco LLC is to build 15 restaurants in Western Ontario and PDR Associates Inc. an additional 12 units in Eastern Ontario. Each franchise group has, the company says, committed to opening one or more restaurants in 2008.

David Flanery, Papa John's chief financial officer and managing director, international, commented on these agreements, saying “Canada is a key focus area for our international expansion, and these multi-unit franchise operators will help us further establish a strong foothold in that country. There's a growing demand for better quality pizza in Canada, and we, along with our franchisees, are eager to continue meeting that demand by delivering our award-winning pizza.”

Based in Louisville, Kentucky, Papa John's is one of the world's largest pizza companies. There currently are 14 Papa John's restaurants open throughout Western Canada, and more than 3,200 open worldwide, including 450 international restaurants in 28 countries.
