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

Papa Johns and Revolution Bars: Business Closures and Sales in the UK

Papa Johns, a leading pizza chain in the UK, has announced plans to close nearly 10% of its restaurants due to underperformance. The decision to shut down 43 sites was made after a comprehensive review of the business identified locations that were no longer financially viable. These closures will have an impact on employees, but the company has pledged to fully support them throughout the process and help them find redeployment opportunities where possible.

The affected Papa Johns restaurants are spread across England, from Harrogate in North Yorkshire to St Helens in Merseyside, Billericay in Essex, and Eastbourne in East Sussex. The closures form part of the company’s strategic plan to free up money for investment in its remaining UK sites. Papa Johns aims to expand into non-traditional locations like holiday parks and is also looking at potential partnerships with other large retail partners in the future.

In another development, Revolution Bars has stated that it may consider putting itself up for sale as part of a review of its business. Following reports that it could close roughly a quarter of its outlets, the company has acknowledged the challenges it has faced and is exploring strategic options to improve its future prospects. This could include restructuring parts of the group or selling all or part of the business.
