Papa John’s Opening In… East Village??

As if there weren’t enough pizza places opening in the East Village… along comes a shop which we could really use: Papa John’s! Not.

Whatever research they did to determine that the East Village was a good place to open a new location could not have been thorough. There are more than a dozen better quality places within two blocks of where they are opening — on 1st Avenue between 12th Street and 13th Street.

I know that sometimes chains open “flagship” stores that lose money or break even. If this is a case of setting up shop simply to get their name out, it’s understandable. But with places like Luzzo’s and Vinny Vincez’s across the street, there’s no way that Papa John’s will turn a profit.

About I Dream Of Pizza

Some guys dream about winning the Powerball jackpot, making love to Kate Upton, or scoring the winning touchdown in the Super Bowl. But personally, I spend most of my time dreaming about digging my face into a mouth watering slice of pizza. Fireworks are ignited. Music comes out of nowhere. And just like that, I’ve fallen in love once again. Since 2008, I've chronicled my pizza eating adventures in New York City and around the world on I Dream Of Pizza -- the web's most popular blog dedicated entirely to pizza.
