Back in 1983, an enterprising young man named John Schnatter converted a broom closet at his father's tavern in Indiana into a makeshift pizza shop. He began selling his pizzas to the tavern's customers. They were so popular that just one year later, he was able to move into his own space next to the tavern to open up the very first Papa John's.
Now the third largest takeout and delivery chain for pizza, Papa John's proudly makes pizzas in over 3,300 franchises in the United States. They pride themselves on better ingredients and better pizza, made fresh to order.
The next time you're in the mood for pizza, you can pick one up at Papa John's or have one delivered hot and fresh to your door. There are some locations that also offer the option of dining in, but you can surely depend on carryout or delivery at every location.
Papa John's has 250 locations in the UK.
