Property FAQs

Does a Papa John's store create high volumes of litter?

No. Papa John’s customers consume their pizzas at home, even those who choose to collect their orders. Papa John’s team members are still trained to keep their store immaculately clean inside and out.

Does a Papa John's store generate unwanted noise, smell and traffic?

Our stores generate very low levels of noise and smell. By using state-of-the-art ventilation, we avoid causing disruption to the lives of local residents. 70% of our business is home delivery so very few of our customers need to park up and queue inside the store for their pizzas.
