If you've been overseas ever, or in particular touched down in the United States, then you might have been lucky enough to nosh back some Papa John's pizza. 

But now it looks like the pizza chain may not just be exclusively for those who make the journey overseas, as the global chain wants to open 100 restaurants in New Zealand!

Currently, there are more than 5000 Papa John's pizza restaurants in 45 countries and New Zealand could get a taste as soon as next year.

Papa John's international business development manager Erin Snyder said the chain was looking for developers to open the stores.

"Typically it takes nine months from the time we sign a development agreement to open a store. Therefore 2017 is not possible, 2018 maybe, if we find a strong candidate."

Pizza lovers get excited for 2018!
