“I have a catering background and was looking for a quality offering in the sector,” explains Steve Mullarkey. “My research showed that Papa John’s was very simply better than the competition. The product’s freshness, quality and value for money is a recipe for success. Combine that with great service and I am in no doubt that customers will keep coming back for more!
“Papa John’s is an exciting company and committed to growth. The head office staff’s enthusiasm for the future is impressive, they really believe this company is going places and I have to agree. The franchisee incentive deals I was offered have enabled me to commit to opening five stores,” continues Mullarkey.
“However, my plans don’t stop there! I aim to open between 10-15 Papa John’s over the next five years, all of which will be situated in the North West. St Helens will be open in the next couple of months, then several more will follow.
“My family and some close friends will be heavily involved in running the enterprise and therefore instrumental in the success of the franchise,” confirms Mullarkey. “This means I will be working with people I trust and that is a really exciting prospect for all of us!”
