Rhiwbina pizza outlet closes

The Rhiwbina branch of pizza chain Papa John’s has closed.

Wales Online reports that all four Papa John’s outlets in Cardiff have closed – three, including Rhiwbina’s, apparently permamently.

Wales Online quotes a Papa John’s spokesperson as saying: “We can confirm that these franchise-owned locations in South Wales have closed. We are currently exploring possibilities around new ownership in the area. We are grateful to all our team members and hope to see our loyal customers again soon.”

The Rhiwbina branch has been open on Thornhill Road for several years, after planning permission was granted in 2015, as we reported here.

The Papa John’s restaurant franchise was founded in 1983 when “Papa” John Schnatter started selling pizzas to customers in his father’s tavern in Jeffersonville, Indiana. He started the business in a converted broom cupboard, with second-hand equipment, purchased by selling his car.

The company is now the third largest takeaway and pizza delivery restaurant chain in the world. Its slogan is “Better Ingredients. Better Pizza. Papa John’s.”
