Papa John's is known for their pizza delivery service and are heading to Holderness Road to serve hungry customers with their top-notch food.
Last August, the American pizza restaurant opened their first UK location at Anlaby Road and less than a year later, they are looking to open a second restaurant at Haolderness Road.
With the launch of this new restaurant approaching, deals are in place. There will be a special menu in place for the first few days and as a part of launch day, customers will be able to buy themselves a large pizza for as little as £6.99.
Papa John's new restaurant will bring a boost in community employment as there are roughly 40 part-time and full-time jobs up for grabs.
The new location can be found in the old residence of Burger Shack. The restaurant invested over £200,000 into renovating the property and getting it ready and have openly shared their excitement for the launch.
According to the management team behind the expansion, "In the past, we were receiving regular phone calls from customers in the East Hull area who kept asking when we'd be opening a restaurant there. We figured that it was time to seize the opportunity."
"The restaurant is opposite a McDonald's restaurant so customers know this is a place to come for food and that parking isn't a problem here. We believe this restaurant will really be a success.", they continued.
Papa John's management have also told that they have intentions to continue opening new locations and that they plan on opening up yet another restaurant on Cottingham Road later on this year.
Even though Papa John's are somewhat new to the East Hull area, they are clearly gaining momentum quickly and are becoming as successful as their competitor Domino's.
"In the last 7 or 8 months, we have grown a lot faster and are already more successful than Domino's have been in the last 7 or 8 years.", their team told us.
A spokesman from Papa John's told us, "We don't use any frozen ingredients, those ruin our pizzas. We use only fresh ingredients which are prepared at the beginning of each day by our trained staff. The different between fresh produce and frozen produce is very noticeable."
For the first few months of the restaurants life, there will be a wide range of deals available. One of the deals which they have promoted is that customers will be able to get their hands on a large pizza for as little as £6.99 or if the customer wants the pizza to be delivered to their home, then the prize will be £8.99; still an amazing deal!
Home delivery is available from this restaurant so if you're in the area, take the chance to get your hands on a delicious and fresh baked pizza.
Another deal which they have been advertising is that anyone who spends over £40 on their meal will receive a 50% discount.
Some unique pizza toppings with Papa John's is known for include their double pepperoni and their piri piri chicken. Aside from pizzas, there are other foods such as fired chicken available, there's something for everyone.
