Group to open 30 Papa Johns pizza shops in Detroit
A group of local investors says it will open 30 Papa Johns restaurants in Detroit within 5 years, creating 1,000 jobs in the city.
The Alpha Group, a coalition of local business people, will hold a press conference and ceremonial signing this afternoon in Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick's office to formally launch the venture.
One Papa John's will be open by June at Cass and Canfield near Wayne State University, the group said in a statement. Three more are scheduled to open by the end of 2007.
A press conference will be held at 3 p.m. in front of the Spirit of Detroit statue outside the Coleman A. Young Municipal Center; come back to www.detnews.com for updates after the event.
