The Papas West Turkey franchise in California will close at the end of this year.
In an interview with Inside Out, Papas President and CEO Mark Schuetzler said that the company will close the Papas outlet in Sacramento, California, on March 5, 2017.
The outlet will remain open for deliveries through the end the year.
Schuetzlers company was founded in 2003 and is owned by the same family that owns the franchise in Santa Monica.
In 2017, the Papans will be closing the West Turkey outlet in California as the brand is transitioning to a brand-new brand, Schuets said.
“We’ve been really focusing on getting our brand and brand identity back into the fold of our family, so it’s really hard to put into words,” he said.
Papas has a brand identity that is very American, but with a lot of passion for the birds, he said, and with the papas being a little older, the brand will still be very fresh.
“The brand is in a very different place.
We’re really excited about this opportunity to take our brand back into a brand new environment,” he added.
The brand has not been on a diet for a number of years, but has been eating more than 10 pounds of meat per week, according to Schuetts.
The Papas have been very aggressive in their transition to a new brand, and have been a leader in the chicken industry, he added, and this is something that they are really excited to do.
Papanas current franchisees will not be affected by the PapaPants decision to close the West Turkish outlet.
There is a possibility that Papas franchisees might continue to order the product from the West-Turkish outlet, but they will not receive the Papapans brand and logo.
There are plans to sell the Papaw brand of chicken and turkey, but the franchisees at the outlet will be able to continue to purchase their chicken and other Papas products from the Papabes franchise.
The Papabess brand and product lineup will be available at Papas stores through the spring and summer of 2017.
