There are business developments in Watsonville every day. Here are some recent highlights:

  • Watsonville Airport staff told Patch that plans to open Monday, Aug. 27. The new airport restaurant was slated to start serving customers earlier in the summer, but got hung up in some red tape. That's all behind owner Andrew Crocker now and Props should open next week. There even is a planned for Thursday, Aug. 30.
  • A new Papa John's under construction in the Pajaro Plaza shopping center at Main Street and South Green Valley Road. No word yet on the date the pizzeria will open, though the Register Pajaronian has reported it should be befoe the end of the month. When the restaurant does start baking pizzas, it will be the first Papa John's in the county. 
  • , a janitorial service in Watsonville, made Inc. magazine's list of the 5,000 fast-growing companies in the United States. The company provides cleaning and other facility maintenance services for commercial, industrial and office buildings, and has other locations around the country.  Watsonville's Economic Development Manager Kurt Overmeyer said "they employ a number of people in Watsonville!"

I will not be a customer either.

Papa John's will not have my business either because of their wacko politics. Besides, Cafe Ella makes much better pizza.

I'm a fan of Papa John's. It's good pizza that can be delivered an wont break the bank. Better than Little Caesars.

I am ever so disappointed! I love papa johns pizza! Papa John knows pizza, but here in watsonville it has the name but unfortunately its not papa johns pizza! Their crust looks like dominos with the cheese all over the crust hardly any toppings or cheese. Will drive else where from now on! Who ever the owner is should have named it after them!
