Eagle Boys has partnered with Port Moresby based retail company CPL Group to bring the brand to Papua New Guinea.

The pizza franchise's first store is located in the Port Moresby suburb of Central Waigani, and a second is set to open outside CPL Group’s Stop and Shop supermarket in the city centre at the end of August.

Over the next two years Eagle Boys in conjunction with CPL Group is looking to open a total of 13 stores across PNG. 

Despite offers from a number of companies Eagle Boys CEO Bruce Scott said the brand opted for CPL Group because of its retail strength and connections with local communities.

“CPL Group has been trading for close to 30 years and matched Eagle Boys’ lengthy experience in the retail market.”

CPL Group is the country’s largest retail network, and it has been operating in the country since 1986.

“Eagle Boys’ expansion into the PNG market is the perfect opportunity to continue the network’s growth internationally.

“We expect our relationship with CPL Group will be a long term business partnership benefiting both companies,” added Scott.

CPL Group’s general manager for supermarket and food business, Michael Taylor said the partnership will not only benefit both companies, but the nation. 

 “We recognised partnering with Eagle Boys was an excellent opportunity for CPL Group to continue its growth in the retail sector and Eagle Boys Pizza is a fantastic addition to our company’s portfolio.

 “This opportunity uniting Eagle Boys and CPL Group ensures two world class companies are partnering to ensure successful results. Opening the Eagle Boys stores is also a great benefit for local communities in PNG and the country’s economy.”
