Papa Johns opening a second outlet

Days after writing about Dominoes, its poor service, and poor marketing, i hear about this.

Papa Johns is opening its second branch soon in Karachi, on Kh-e-Rahat, opp. DHA College For Men.

And here i thought Papa Johns was’nt liked by the ‘people’. Guess now i will have to go try it.

Interestingly, Kh-e-Rahat is becoming quite a lively commercial center on its own, with Dunkin Donuts and Hot n Spicy already opening up outlets there and more brands on the way. When i was in DHA, all i remember being there was a photo copy shop, a stationary, and a dhaba. When we bunked classes, all we could do was sit in the dhaba, now the kids can bunk classes and have pizza and donuts!

On a personal note: All this talk about food is making me hungry…. where *is* the lunch guy!!!!

    ive loved Papa John’s forever. My sister got me hooked to it in Florida way back in 1999. after reading teh reviews on KMB i decided to not try it here.

    My mistake.

    it tastes exactly like it does abroad. and i do prefer pizza flavour from papa john’s to pizza hut.

    its just about us getting soo very used to pizza hut that we dislike papa john’s

    dominoes: now they have bad flavour.

    anon: they have a very good seating area.. not just take away.

    anathema: which pizza would you suggest for me to have, if i do end up going there?

    It is indeed your business if your a Muslime or a Sikh (jhatka only).


  21. Anathema (unregistered) on August 19th, 2006 @ 1:22 pm

    exactly Mr. Confused Desi.
    it “my” business.

    which is why i fail to understood why its such a bother to you, or why you have to pinpoint it.


  22. icedmocha (unregistered) on August 20th, 2006 @ 7:30 pm

  23. mansoor (unregistered) on August 21st, 2006 @ 12:00 pm

    anathema: well said! why does everyone take it upon themselves to thrust ‘their’ ideals on everyone else!!!

    icedmocha: finally, a comment against pap johns :D


  24. Anathema (unregistered) on August 21st, 2006 @ 12:32 pm
