A Crunkleton & Associates property in Athens is now home to the first Papa Murphy’s CREATE store design east of the Mississippi River and only the 5th in the United States. The CREATE concept has a modern, yet inviting feel and focuses one’s attention to the fresh ingredients, made from scratch dough and employee work area, where you watch your pizza creation come to life before your eyes. The store is bright, open, welcoming and boasts a new ‘Murphy’s Market’ section, featuring dinner salads, sides and desserts, as well as easy-to-read digital menus.
“For over 32 years, we have strived to provide the best fresh pizza experience to busy families. Our new food-forward store highlights our high-quality ingredients with clean and simple design,” said Kevin King, Papa Murphy’s Chief Development Officer. “Two key features of the modernized CREATE store are the digital menu boards and the addition of a convenient grab ‘n’ go “Murphy’s Market.”
The new concept Papa Murphy’s is located at 1001 Highway 72, Suite 3 in Athens next to Hibbett Sports, near WalMart. It is owned by Twickenham Holdings, LLC of Atlanta. Papa Murphy’s is the world’s leading take-and-bake pizza chain and first opened in Oregon in 1981. The company operates more than 1,370 stores in the Unites States, Canada and United Arab Emirates.
