LOUISVILLE, KY – The first Papa John’s location in The Netherlands should open this summer under a restaurant development agreement announced March 17. A consortium of five Papa John’s franchisees in the United Kingdom, led by Tony Kalsi, has the exclusive development rights.
The entry into The Netherlands is part of Papa John’s strategy to expand in Europe. Papa John’s International has 320 restaurants in the United Kingdom and soon will open restaurants in Spain and France. The Louisville-based company is looking for potential franchisees in Belgium, Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic.
