Papa John’s puts Pizza & a Pint on the Menu!

Papa John’s puts Pizza & a Pint on the Menu!

Papa John’s has teamed up with Staffordshire based pub the Saracen’s Head, to serve up pizza and a pint!   From 12 April 2021, pub-goers returning to frequent the popular public house in the vibrant village of Weston, can enjoy Papa John’s pizza made with only the freshest, finest ingredients for the first time, served up with their favourite beverage inside, or in the pub’s extensive beer garden.

Lucy Dell, General Manager, Saracen’s Head confirms: “DHG Managing Director Martin Hirst acquired the pub five years ago and since then we’ve invested heavily in refurbishment, including a substantial new extension plus an open sided marquee.  Our partnership with Papa John’s is the next step designed to enhance our proposition as we gear-up to welcome the return of customers this spring and summer.

“Papa John’s pizza will be available for both collection and delivery orders.  For those who looking to enjoy our safe, socially distanced facilities, including our huge family beer garden and meet our resident herd of ten lamas, there is also now the chance to enjoy Papa John’s pizza with a pint at the same time! 

“Aligning with a global brand like Papa John’s which is known throughout the world for its high-quality pizza, means we can complement our existing menu with more fresh food and fun!  We have already taken hundreds of bookings for the 12 April and beyond and are now looking forward to a super summer with pizza on the side!”

Justin Gilbert Director of Business Development Papa John’s UK confirms: “With pubs re-opening, Papa John’s at the Saracen’s Head is a great example of how we can help drive profitable growth for selected establishments right at the heart of the community.  By flexing our franchise offering we can provide the global support and marketing of our brand to suitable pubs to help them drive traffic and differentiate from the competition.  They can now reap the rewards of our high-quality ingredients, processes and products with a low cost of entry to benefit their existing eat-in dining market.

“If there is no existing franchisee in a pub’s trade zone, there is also the opportunity to deliver to the local community opening up a new year-round revenue stream.  Our team is dedicated to ensuring we can offer our pizza in more locations, so our valued customers can enjoy Papa John’s where and when they choose.  It means everyone’s included in the Papa John’s experience and we welcome applications from other suitable venues who are looking at adding a quality branded dining experience for their customers.”

For those interested in running a high street Papa John’s franchise or one of our non-traditional venues, we offer incentives so you can be open this summer plus world-class support, comprehensive training and national marketing.  As a franchisor, the Company supplies all the assistance needed to get your successful Papa John’s up and running.
