Leading pizza franchise Papa Johns is to deliver a ‘pizza delight’ to more Haven holidaymakers this summer, with new two new store openings. A Papa Johns’ modular pod has been delivered to Haven’s park in Marton Mere, Blackpool. In addition, a further full sized Papa Johns has also been opened at the brand new Haven holiday park at Skegness, Lincolnshire, which welcomed its first guests in the spring.
The former Richmond Holiday Parks site in Skegness was purchased by Haven in 2022 and has undergone a significant investment in the transformation and improvement of facilities. A Marina Bar & Stage, restaurant, new arcade, kart hire and bungee trampolines will be available for this summer’s guests.
Lucy Greene, National New Openings Manager, Haven, confirms: “Having our valued franchise partners on board with us as we welcome guests to Skegness for the first time this summer is exciting. It means we can offer the same great food choice as many of our other locations, and visitors can use our Haven Serve app to click and collect or simply arrange delivery to their holiday home or a table at our Marina Bar & Stage. With Papa Johns already on site so early in the season, it means holiday makers will be able to share their favourite pizza with friends and family throughout the 2023 summer season and beyond.”
In addition to the Skegness store, a Papa Johns modular unit has also opened at Haven’s Marton Mere holiday park. “Marton Mere is a wonderful park, but we were missing pizza from our hot food offering. We selected the site location at the end of last year, and following planning approval, the Papa Johns modular pod went into build.
“The containerised modular option is convenient and fast and the whole process working with the Papa Johns team has been seamless from start to finish. We look forward to welcoming both new and returning guests, who can now enjoy the treat of Papa Johns while making the most of their Haven holiday.”
In addition to the Skegness and Marton Mere openings, Haven guests also benefit from an extension to the existing Papa Johns at Haven’s park in Hafan Y Mor, North Wales, which was extended to add more space and a seating area earlier this year.
Amit Pancholi, business development director, Papa Johns UK explains: “We now have 30 Papa Johns across Haven holiday parks across the UK. The additions will ensure guests can enjoy a tasty Papa Johns pizza takeaway on park, or from the comfort of their holiday home adding to the convenience and all the fun of a Haven staycation.”
