Papa Johns, a popular pizza chain in the UK, has announced that it will be closing nearly 10% of its restaurants due to underperformance. The decision to close 43 sites came after a review of the business identified locations that were no longer financially viable. These closures will affect employees, but the company has stated that it will fully support them throughout the process and help them find redeployment opportunities where possible.

The affected Papa Johns restaurants are all in England, spanning from Harrogate, North Yorkshire to St Helens, Merseyside, Billericay, Essex, and Eastbourne, East Sussex. The closures are part of the company’s planned strategic closures to free up money for investment in its remaining UK sites. Papa Johns aims to expand into non-traditional locations like holiday parks and has plans to partner with other large retail partners in the future.

In a separate announcement, Revolution Bars has also stated that it may consider putting itself up for sale as part of a review of the business. Following reports that it could close roughly a quarter of its outlets, the company has acknowledged the challenges it has faced and is exploring strategic options to improve its future prospects. This could include restructuring parts of the group or a potential sale of all or part of the business.
