How many Papa John’s locations are there worldwide?

Pizza chain Papa John’s has increased its number of restaurants worldwide year-on-year since 2007, reaching a record 5,395 units in 2019.

Sales slump in North America hits Papa John’s

Papa John’s announced total worldwide revenues of 1.62 billion U.S. dollars in 2019. Restaurant sales from its domestic company-owned stores fell by around 40 million U.S. dollars on the previous year, while a slight drop in sales from franchised stores in North America led to lower royalties and fees being generated. Sales from its international restaurants increased in 2019, but the company still reported a year-on-year decrease of seven percent from its overall international operations.
