US-based pizza chain Papa John’s International has reported a 2% increase in total revenues to $2.10bn for the year ended 25 December 2022, representing an increase of $34m compared to the same period in the prior year.

The growth has been attributed to a 14.2% increase in North American commissary revenues, as well as a 4.5% increase in system-wide units and positive comparable sales for the year.

However, Papa John’s noted that the growth was partially offset by lower global revenues for the restaurant brand.

During FY 2022, the company’s global system-wide restaurant sales stood at $4.84bn, which was an increase of 3% in comparison to the previous year.

The company’s North America comparable sales also grew by 1% compared to the prior year and were up by 30% on a three-year stack.

Its international comparable sales saw a decline of 5% from a year ago but still increased by 20% on a three-year stack.
