16 July 2012: Leading Pizza franchise, Papa John’s, has announced the opening of five new UK stores in the past two months. The company which aims to reach over 200 UK outlets by the end of this year, has just opened in Enfield, Broxbourne, Leamington Spa, Guildford and Manchester taking the number of its Pizza outlets across the nation to 188.
Gerry Hughes also owns several other retail franchises in other industries and his sister, Wenna Spence, who also runs an interior plant company, have just opened Manchester’s Fallowfield store. Gerry said: “We were looking for a new franchise that offered room for growth. We researched the pizza store market thoroughly and Papa John’s stood out with a superior product, store locations and overall franchise opportunity. We are keen to open a second Papa John’s outlet in the next few months to capitalise on this exciting, growing market.”
“As we expand, we are seeing increased interest from potential franchisees who recognise the lucrative business opportunity owning a Papa John’s pizza outlet represents.” explains Dave Galvin UK franchise sales manager, Papa John’s. “The Papa John’s concept of only using the highest quality ingredients and 100% fresh dough to create a top quality pizza with a better natural flavour, is particularly popular. Combine this with a strong brand and the back-up of an established and professional support team and the franchises provide a real chance to create a thriving business with the potential to expand exponentially through the ownership of multiple outlets.”
Papa John’s, which is renowned for its product quality, has opportunities for potential franchisees throughout the UK including the key locations of Yorkshire, Manchester, West Midlands, East Midlands, South West, North East, Wales & Scotland. The company helps source premises and provides full training and support to allow franchisees to run a successful operation under the popular and highly regarded Papa John’s brand.
