Joumun, who bought his Norwich Papa John’s franchise in May 2012 currently employs 15 staff and aims to open an additional outlet in Ipswich by the end of the year.
“I was first introduced to Papa John’s by my friend and now business partner, Manzoor Hussain,” explains Nash Joumun. “Following some research I found that Papa John’s was a popular and rapidly growing brand. I also liked the business model, which offers the opportunity to expand through setting up multiple outlets. However, it was the taste test which really helped me make a final decision. Papa John’s uses only the finest, fresh ingredients and so the product is easily the best in the market place.
“We were lucky enough to be able to take over an established store in the centre of Norwich,” he continues. “We re-introduced Papa John’s tried and tested methods which improved the efficiency of the whole store and focused on marketing through leafleting and sponsorship arrangements with the University of East Anglia. Already we have seen huge increases in turnover and our profits will be invested in opening further stores in the future.
First pioneered in the USA, 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 has proved incredibly popular in the UK. The company now has 88 UK franchisees operating 189 outlets and is on target to reach a goal of over 200 by the year end.
Papa John's is one of the largest pizza companies in the world, with over 3900 stores worldwide and is rapidly expanding in 33 markets around the globe. 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.
