Papa John’s Pizza company has submitted a planning application to open up a takeaway outlet in Northampton’s Bridge Street.
The American pizza chain, which already has a branch in Kingsthorpe, is planning to takeover the unit that housed the former Taverna Romana restaurant.
The planning application includes details of the installation of the Papa John’s ‘conveyor oven’, which is used to cook all the products.
No date has been set for when the borough council will make a decision on the application.
The news comes a week before a second Burger King restaurant is due to open in up in the town centre in the former Eastgate pub site.
