Whether you need to feed your busy family on-the-go, or just want to grab a pizza and plunk yourself down on the couch to watch the big game, your first call should be to Papa John’s.
The South Surrey business is a relative newcomer to the Grandview Corners neighborhood, having been in operation since September.
But though new to the community, Papa John’s franchise owner Ajay Ratanpal, a Newton resident, is no stranger to the business world, having run other businesses for 16 years.
The pizza industry is a popular one, of course, but Ratanpal said Papa John’s aims to bring “a fresher look” to the business. The company’s motto is “better ingredients, better pizza,” and they mean it – all the vegetables used are 90 per cent water in mass and organic, and rather than sit on a dusty shelf for an extended period of time, the tomatoes used in the pizza sauce take “about six hours from the fields to the can.”
