August 28, 2023 – West Bend, WI – A national pizza franchise is making a return to West Bend, Wi.
Papa John’s Pizza will be opening in the strip mall 1019 S. Main Street. The strip is currently anchored by Jersey Mike’s and T-Mobile and is across from Maus Jewelers and to the north of Dairy Queen.
Papa John’s, which reportedly “started in a broom closet in Jeffersonville, IN,” has 19 stores in Wisconsin including Fond du Lac, Menomonee Falls and Sheboygan.
