Papa John's was founded in the USA in 1983 by John Schnatter, who at the age of 22 sold his Chevrolet Camaro car to pay for his first pizza oven.
A year later he opened his first store in his hometown of Jeffersonville, Indiana.
The chain now has 3,500 stores worldwide, 175 of which are in the UK.
The opening of Papa John's will add yet more competition to the busy pizza market in Bath.
A spokesman for Domino's London Road store said it was not planning any additional promotions to counteract the opening of a new rival.
Pizzarella on Chelsea Road has been serving takeaway pizza for 20 years in the city.
A spokesman for the store said they wished the new delivery enterprise the best of luck.
He said: "We don't do delivery.
"We've tried it several times so we wish them luck with that."
