Papa John's pizza is coming to Strongsville early next year.
The pizza chain has nearly finished renovations at Pearl Road and Echo Drive, in the plaza with Skin Deep Mega Tan and Sweet Kiddles Flexible Childcare.
The franchise owner could not be reached for comment, but employees on the site said the restaurant will open Jan. 2.
It's Strongsville's only Papa John's. The company's website shows locations in Berea, Brunswick, Parma, Parma Heights and North Olmsted.
There are more than 3,500 Papa John's locations in all 50 states and 29 countries, the website says.
The company prides itself on using fresh dough and high-quality ingredients.
