The new agreement will see expansion of the brand in the Midwest, Arizona, Pennsylvania and Florida.

Papa John’s International has unveiled plans to open 50 more US restaurants by 2028 through a new agreement with franchisee Nadeem Bajwa and his company, the Bajco Group.

The move is part of a broader strategy to increase the brand’s presence in key markets and is aligned with the Bajco Group’s objective to own 500 Papa Johns outlets. The group currently operates more than 200.

Bajwa said: “Signing this deal, I am as excited today as I was 20 years ago when I opened my first restaurant.

“Papa Johns is not just about business. My team members are my family – and that’s a whole different ballgame.

“I’m proud that in partnership with Papa Johns, I have been able to pursue my own aspiration, and watch my own team members go from starting their first jobs to becoming leaders.”
