GLASTONBURY pizza lovers will soon be able to enjoy a slice of Papa John’s if new plans are approved.
The pizza company, which already has branches in Bridgwater, Taunton and Yeovil – has applied to set up a new branch in the former William Hill bookmakers at 17 Market Place.
The company believes the new outlet could provide up to 20 full-time jobs for Glastonbury residents and would compliment existing businesses in the town centre.
The proposed branch lies opposite Glastonbury’s historic Market Cross, a short distance from The King William Inn.
If approved, the branch will be open from 11am to 11pm every day, including Sundays and bank holidays, with up to 20 full-time jobs being created.
Papa John's estimates the premises will receive three deliveries by lorry each week – two from the company’s central food supplier, and one from its main drinks partner, Coca Cola.
Mendip District Council is expected to make a decision on the plans before Christmas.
