Papa John’s & Abbeyford Leisure Bring the Home of Pizza to the Home of Golf!

Leading pizza franchise, Papa John’s, has announced it has teed-off with Abbeyford Leisure to bring the home of Pizza to the home of golf in St Andrews.   The newest franchised Papa John’s store is located on Abbeyford Leisure’s St Andrews Holiday Park at Kinkell Braes, one of the most sought-after holiday locations on the east coast of Scotland.   The new store will also deliver to residents of St Andrews, so the whole town benefits and not just the happy campers!

David J Evans, chairman, Abbeyford Leisure explains: “As one of the leading holiday park brands across East Central Scotland and North Wales, we take great pride in providing the best available caravan holidays available.  For example, our St Andrews club house has recently undergone a £1Million investment in its refurbishment.  With 450 caravans and lodges plus camping on site at St Andrews all accommodating up to six people, our appeal is to family groups including grandparents, parents and children alike.


“We were looking for something different and special to introduce as a food offering at our St Andrews park and were delighted when Papa John’s wanted to ‘play ball’.  As big fans of the Company’s top-quality fresh pizza, the result really is a ‘hole in one’ and a combination which the whole family can enjoy.


“St Andrews is a busy town and we have plenty of parking so we will also be welcoming students and families in the region to drop by and pick up a takeaway while appreciating a view of the sea and perhaps musing about their golf score, while they wait for their pizza to be baked.  Alternatively, we also do online orders delivered for customers to enjoy at their very own nineteenth hole!


“Papa John’s popular concept of: “BETTER INGREDIENTS.  BETTER PIZZA.” means we only use the finest ingredients and fresh dough – never frozen – for a better flavour.  When we asked around for feedback about Papa John’s we found people either ‘loved it or hadn’t tried it yet’ so we anticipate there is a big opportunity.  This is Abbeyford’s first link-up with a big brand like Papa John’s and as a group of six holiday parks across the UK, who knows what the future holds?   So far, we have been really impressed with the Papa John’s team who care about what they do and are as excited as we are about the Abbeyford opening.”


As one of the largest pizza companies in the world, Papa John’s has opportunities for franchisees throughout the UK.  Help is provided with location selection and full turn-key opening of stores.  As a franchise, the Company supplies all the assistance needed to get your successful Papa John’s up and running.
