Good news for those pizza lovers who's staying around Bukit Jalil. Last Friday, Berjaya Papa John’s Pizza, a wholly owned subsidiary of  Berjaya Corporation and operator of one of the world’s largest pizza company, is poised to strengthen their footprint in Malaysia’s F&B industry with its  high quality pizzas through the launch of its 23rd outlet located at Jalil Link, Bukit Jalil. Berjaya Papa John’s Pizza latest chain of Delivery-with-Seats (DWS) concept is the fifth of its kind in Malaysia, with the rest of the outlets are Restaurant-Based-Delivery (RBD) concept.


Known worldwide for their business philosophy – “Better Ingredients, Better Pizza”, Papa John’s Pizza is extensively available in more than 4300 outlets in 37 countries.  The household pizza brand began their journey in Malaysia in 2008 when Berjaya Corporation inked a franchise-development agreement with Papa John’s Pizza International Inc as the local franchisor. Since then, the pizza expert has delighted millions of customers with their scrumptious pizzas packed with superior quality ingredients while continuously expanding their gastronomical experience to the local pizza lovers as the brand gradually grew on local soil.


Mr Eric Leong, Head of Berjaya Papa John's, Wendy's and Business Development.
“We brought in Papa John’s because we understand Malaysia is built on a culture of great food and delicacies, and we wanted Malaysians to experience the tastiest pizza with premium and authentic quality ingredients,” said Mr Eric Leong, Head of Berjaya Papa John's, Wendy's and Business Development. “Papa John believes that a better pizza begins from the bottom up – and this analogy lies in our business strategy too where we believe before we make a big stride into the local market, we have to be certain our foundations and resources were solid enough to maintain the highest standards for our products. It is the time, now,” commented Leong.

“We have plans to open six more Deliver-With-Seats (DWS) outlets in 2013. Our goal is to reach 100 stores, in total, across peninsula Malaysia by year 2020. Soon, more Malaysians will be able to enjoy our quality pizzas. We will also be increasing our delivery service areas, to further our reach in providing the freshest and best tasting pizzas to the nation”, added Leong. Papa John’s Pizza current delivery zones are focused mainly in Klang Valley, Malacca and Ipoh city zones, with plans to expand to other market centers in Malaysia.

As a testament to its “Better Ingredients, Better Pizza” philosophy, Papa John's Pizza takes pride in providing pizza lovers with the best of everything – from the freshest, never frozen, original dough topped with all-natural tomato sauce, to 100% real meats and freshly sliced veggies.

“What makes Papa John’s a slice above the rest lies in the authentic and superior quality ingredients. We do not, and will not comprise on our pizzas’ quality to ensure that our customers always have the greatest taste and experience which is our secret to customer satisfaction,” said Leong. Papa John’s Pizza in Malaysia is a two conservative year winner of the best medium-scale Quality Control Center (QCC) in Asia title as awarded by Papa John’s International based on the most stringent standards set by Papa John’s in the US.
