Papa John’s returning to Spokane

Three Papa John’s restaurants closed suddenly in January will be reopened, starting Wednesday.

Preston House, owner of six Boise-area Papa John’s, said the relaunch of the 101 N. Argonne Rd. store will be followed by reopenings Thursday at 920 W. Indiana Ave. and Monday at 2023 E. Wellesley Ave.

He said he has hired 40-plus employees, including more than a dozen who lost their jobs when a former franchisee abruptly closed 12 stores in Eastern Washington and North Idaho.

More Papa John’s may be reopened, House said, although loss of the lease on the South Hill location will force a relocation there. 

House said he is offering signing bonuses to the former employees, who did not receive their final paychecks from the former operator.
