Papa John’s to close 10% of UK pizza locations

Papa Johns Shuts Down 10% of Restaurants, Revolution Bars Considers Sale Amid Business Challenges

Papa Johns, a well-known pizza chain in the UK, has recently declared that it will be shutting down almost 10% of its restaurants due to poor performance. The decision to close 43 sites came after an evaluation of the business identified locations that were no longer financially viable. These closures will have an impact on employees, but the company has assured that it will offer them full support throughout the process and help them find alternative job opportunities where possible.

The affected Papa Johns restaurants are located throughout England, from Harrogate, North Yorkshire to St Helens, Merseyside, Billericay, Essex, and Eastbourne, East Sussex. The closures form part of the company’s planned strategic closures aimed at freeing up funds for investment in its remaining UK sites. Papa Johns intends to expand into non-traditional locations such as holiday parks and partner with other major retailers in the future.

In a separate announcement, Revolution Bars has stated that it may consider putting itself up for sale as part of a review of its business. Following reports suggesting that it could close approximately one-fourth of its outlets, the company has acknowledged the challenges it has faced and is exploring strategic options to improve its prospects moving forward. This could include restructuring parts of the group or selling all or part of the business.
