“Papa John’s is focused on growth,” confirms Anthony Round, business development manager. “The Company’s concept of ‘better ingredients, better pizza’ is enjoying success across the globe and this year we celebrated our 1,000th worldwide store opening in Moscow. For our franchisees closer to home, the UK market offers significant potential for expansion. We will have 250 UK outlets by the end of 2013 and we aim to deliver on our promise of having 600 UK stores over the next ten years.
“To help prospective franchisees bring our superior quality pizza to even more UK customers we are now excited to announce our ‘biggest and best’ incentive scheme to-date for 2014,” continues Round. “For new stores opening in Wales, the Midlands, North East, the North West and Scotland, we are offering a 12 month royalty break if opened by July 2014 or a nine month royalty break for stores opening before the end of 2014. To get new franchisees off to a great start we are also supplying free oven and refrigerated equipment, plus an additional £10k of marketing spend for the store opening launch. The whole package could result in savings of 50k for your first Papa John’s store! These fantastic deals are only available for 2014 and are limited, so first come first served!
“To a great extent, Papa John’s success is due to the popularity of our product,” explains Round. “Our pizzas are created only using the highest quality ingredients and 100% fresh dough to make a top quality pizza with a better natural flavour. Combine this with excellent customer service, rapid delivery times, a strong brand, comprehensive staff training and some hard hitting marketing support – Papa John’s is currently the official Pizza Partner of The Football League - and the franchise serves-up a fantastic offer for those looking for a quality investment opportunity.”
“In the next year, we will also actively be encouraging enthusiastic franchisees who are keen to become multiple site operators,” continues Round. “For example, currently we are offering no additional franchise fee to open further outlets.”
