Papa John’s Pizza has been very well received in Gloucester, area supervisor and manager Richard Dicken said.
The first Papa John’s in Gloucester opened in late December at White Marsh Village on Route 17. The local franchise, P.J. Hayes, is a partnership with North Central Virginia Restaurants, which operates 25 other Papa John’s pizza stores, mostly from Harrisonburg to Fairfax.
Papa John’s specializes in pizza, offering delivery service and carry-out. The store delivers from Gloucester Point to Ark and part of the way out Route 14.
The local shop employs about 30, both full- and part-time workers. The Louisville, Kentucky-based company has more than 4,200 stores across the U.S., as well as in some foreign countries. Dicken has worked for Papa John’s for 14 years; he resides in Gloucester.
