“Way back when I was in colleague I used to work for Papa John’s,” explains Bilal. “I always loved the product and knew I wanted to run my own franchised store one day.
“I was lucky enough to be able to take advantage of Papa John’s current incentive scheme which helps franchisees in new ventures,” continues Bilal.
“A special deal on equipment and help with marketing was a ‘high-voltage’ injection right when starting out and it means I am already thinking about my second store which will open in a few weeks, plus perhaps purchasing some resale franchised units in the near future!
“The Redditch opening has gone really well and I already have 26 local people employed,” confirms Bilal. “The support and training provided by head office was great and it has ensured the team could deliver top quality pizza from day one and we are already gaining a lot of repeat business. I am looking forward to undertaking some ‘powerful’ local marketing, plus the National initiatives that Papa John’s has planned will be sure to ‘generate’ even more business and take the store to the next level.”
Papa John’s has recently launched its new incentive scheme to help franchisees in the early stages of growing their businesses which includes discounted royalty fees, contribution towards marketing spend plus free equipment for new stores opening our the enterprise development zones of the Midlands, Wales, The North West, North East and Scotland. These great deals are all on the table for franchises opening in 2015, so first come first served!
