Papa John’s Pizza has opened at 5756 Calle Real in Goleta, immediately next door to Paloma Restaurant and Tequila Bar. “I have been local in Santa Barbara for more than 20 years now,” says store manager Asia Ashley. “I think more people feel comfortable knowing that such a huge name like Papa John’s has local people working on the inside. These aren’t people who have come from other states, or other places that we had to bring in to work here. They are all locally hired people. That’s usually a plus.”
Papa John’s lets you chose your own ingredients or pick from specialty pizzas including The Works, The Meats, John’s Favorite, Garden Fresh, Spicy Italian, Spinach Alfredo, BBQ Chicken Bacon, Hawaiian BBQ Chicken, Tuscan Six Cheese, Double Bacon 6-Cheese. Papa John’s owns or franchises approximately 4,200 restaurants in all 50 states and 35 countries. For more information visit papajohns.com or call 967-2421.
