Nearly a tenth of Papa John’s pizza locations in the UK set to close

Papa Johns has made the decision to close nearly a tenth of its UK restaurants due to underperformance. The company has conducted a review of its business which began in January and identified several locations that were deemed “no longer financially viable”. This has resulted in the closure of 43 sites across England, ranging from Harrogate, North Yorkshire to St Helens, Merseyside, Billericay, Essex, and Eastbourne, East Sussex.

The closures are part of the company’s strategy to free up money for investment and improve profitability at its remaining UK sites. Papa Johns plans to invest in its remaining locations while expanding further into non-traditional sites like holiday parks. The chain has also expressed its intention to announce partnerships with other large retailers in the coming months.

Papa Johns UK managing director, Chris Phylactou, has emphasized that the priority is to fully support team members affected by the closures. The company aims to work with impacted employees to find redeployment opportunities where available. While the exact number of jobs affected has not been disclosed, the focus remains on assisting the affected staff throughout the transition process.

In a separate development, Revolution Bars has announced that it may consider putting itself up for sale as part of a business review. Following a period of “external challenges” affecting its performance, the company is exploring various strategic options to improve its future prospects. This could involve restructuring certain parts of the business or a potential sale of all or part of the group, according to Revolution Bars.
