It’s not the biggest number of jobs in an economic development announcement but it is certainly high-profile – especially with basketball great Shaquille O’Neal as the face of the franchise. The country’s fourth-largest and fastest-growing pizza chain Papa John’s has announced that it is moving to the Atlanta area and bringing 200 new jobs. The new global headquarters are expected to open next year.
“It’s a pleasure to welcome Papa John’s to the strong list of internationally known U.S. companies that have chosen the Peach State for their global headquarters,” said Governor Kemp. “As the Top State for Business for seven consecutive years, these leading businesses know that Georgia has what they need to continue to thrive and expand. I’m confident that Papa John’s will continue finding success in Georgia, and I look forward to seeing the exceptional opportunities this brings to hardworking Georgians across metro Atlanta.”
