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

Papa Johns and Revolution Bars Announce Closures and Business Reviews: UK’s Leading Pizza and Bar Chains Focus on Improving Profitability

Papa Johns, a leading pizza chain in the UK, has announced the closure of nearly one-tenth of its restaurants due to underperformance. The company conducted a review of its business that began in January and identified several locations as “no longer financially viable.” As a result, 43 sites across England will be closed, ranging from Harrogate, North Yorkshire to St Helens, Merseyside, Billericay, Essex, and Eastbourne, East Sussex.

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

Papa Johns UK managing director Chris Phylactou 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. Although the exact number of jobs affected has not been disclosed, Phylactou stated that their focus remains on assisting the affected staff throughout the transition process.

In separate news, 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.
