The Pizza, Pasta & Italian Food Association (PAPA) has named Papa John’s as its Pizza Delivery Chain of the Year for the second consecutive year. This award recognises the pizza delivery chain that is doing the most to drive the market. This year, the winners for all the PAPA awards were announced virtually via www.papa.org.uk.
Justin Gilbert, director of business development Papa John’s UK stated: “We are hugely proud of the achievements and effort of all our whole team during this incredibly challenging year. We have continued to drive improvements across all areas of our business. Winning this award back-to-back is the result of our team all working together towards the same shared vision and goal.
“Our pizza made with the freshest, finest quality ingredients has remained popular throughout, offering the chance for many people to enjoy a real treat even more in difficult times. In 2021, we aim to continue to deliver on our promise of: “BETTER INGREDIENTS. BETTER PIZZA” and hope to be in with a chance to go for the hat trick!
“Over the past 12 months, we have been focused on introducing brand-new recipes following the very latest trends in food consumption across the globe. It is this attention to innovation combined with top quality ingredients, rapid delivery times plus great customer service, which has enabled us to continue to grow in popularity in the UK.
“However, it’s also all about convenience and fun, ensuring customers can have the pizza they want, where and when they want it! Diversification in relation to locations where Papa John’s pizza is available will be key to our future growth. While we will still be opening new stores on the high street, we are already also looking at how we can partner with organisations that have an established customer base and would like to add a quality, hot food to their offering.
“In 2021, we are committed to further expansion, creating more jobs in new stores and continuing to deliver to the communities which we serve.”
