Papa John’s International, Inc. Tuesday announced its new headquarters in Atlanta will be in Three Ballpark Center at The Battery Atlanta. The 60,000-square-foot space will be designed to “drive continued menu innovation and optimized integration” across many of the company’s departments including HR and marketing. Papa John’s expects to add 200 jobs in Atlanta and continue to expand positions in both Atlanta and Louisville over the next few years. The company’s IT, supply chain, accounting and legal teams will remain in the Louisville, KY offices. Papa John’s also maintains an international headquarters office outside of London, UK.
“Our new Atlanta headquarters is the outcome of a process we began in late 2019 as an investment in our long-term growth and delivers on our purpose, values, and strategic business priorities,” Rob Lynch, president and CEO of Papa John’s, said in a press release. “We’re excited to expand in Atlanta – a vibrant city that’s home to several QSR brands and provides incredible access to a deep, diverse talent pool.”
The Papa John’s headquarters will be the third corporate headquarters to be located within The Battery Atlanta, following the Comcast regional headquarters and the thyssenkrupp North American headquarters.
“We are thrilled to welcome Papa John’s to The Battery Atlanta where they will literally be at the intersection of the hottest office location in Metro Atlanta,” Mike Plant, president and CEO of Braves Development Company, said in the release. “We are honored they chose Three Ballpark Center to house their new global headquarters and we look forward to a long partnership with their leadership team and employees.”
The brand will spend time in Atlanta preparing for the transition and recruiting for a number of roles to fill over the coming months. The new location at Three Ballpark Center, at 788 Circle 75 Parkway, and related organizational changes are expected to be completed by Summer 2021.
