Papa Murphy’s Puts Hawaii On Expansion Menu

The Vancouver, Wash., pizza chain expects to add up to 120 new domestic locations, including its first store in Hawaii, in 2016. Over the next four years, the Aloha State will welcome 15 of the take-and-bake pizza outlets, including a store this year in Oahu. Papa Murphy’s also is doubling its footprint in Alabama by adding 12 stores in Birmingham and Huntsville by 2020. The same development agreement calls for adding units in Raleigh, N.C. Papa Murphy’s has more than 1,500 franchised and corporate-owned outlets in 38 states, Canada and United Arab Emirates.
