PIZZA chain Papa John's has opened in Stourbridge.

The new store on Hagley Road opened on Monday (June 13).

A spokesman for Papa John's said franchisee Atif Zar "has opened his 10th Papa John's store in his home town of Stourbridge."

The former Oakley House of Hair premises has been converted into a takeaway, which will open from 11am till 11pm seven days a week.

Mr Zar said: “I am excited to open in Stourbridge as it’s my home town and I am loving bringing Papa John's amazing offering to the area.

"We have brought over 20 new jobs to the area with a mixture of in-store staff and drivers, ensuring that local people are at the heart of my business.

"This is my tenth branch and a definitive time in my career.

"I do not know anyone who has got to the top without hard work.

"That is the recipe.

"It will not always get you to the top, but should get you pretty near.

"I'm looking forward and hoping to make papa John’s a household flavour and special treat.”

The store will be offering collection and delivery within a one mile radius around the store for the first week and then is hoping to offer delivery to the entire town by June 20.

A range of pizzas, garlic sticks, chicken sides, drinks, desserts and Papa Johns’ new product the handheld folded pizza ‘Papadia’ are on sale.

There is also a range of offers such as 50% off pizzas when you spend £30.
