Leading pizza franchise, Papa John’s, has announced the opening of three brand new stores. Gosport in Hampshire, Maidstone in Kent and Wednesbury in the West Midlands have all opened for contactless delivery in recent weeks, taking the number of Papa John’s now operating to now over 450 in the UK.
Phil Gaffer, QFP, franchise sales and business development manager Papa John’s UK explains: “Our “BETTER INGREDIENTS. BETTER PIZZA.” concept which means we only use the freshest, finest ingredients to create a better pizza, has proved popular all over the world and the UK franchise has grown rapidly in recent years.
“The new stores which have just opened, are being managed by some of our most experienced franchisees and their teams who have all run multi-unit operations for several years. By being able to support and deliver to our communities safely in line with government advice, we are proud of how our network of franchisees and their staff across the country have been able to continue to deliver hot food to those needing to stay at home in recent months.
“While many of our existing franchisees are focused on expansion, we also continue to welcome applications from potential new franchisees who are keen to run a multi-unit franchise by joining our Papa John’s family. Until we can resume in-person visits, our recruitment process has become ‘virtual’ for some elements including a meet and greet online plus a virtual guest visit to our Quality Control Center where prospective franchisees can see how we work and meet key staff online.
“For those interested in running a multi-unit Papa John’s franchise, we have opportunities throughout the UK. We are particularly looking for franchisees to develop businesses in the North West, North East, Nottinghamshire and the South West. Help is provided with location selection, growth incentives and full turn-key opening of stores. As a franchise, the Company supplies all the assistance needed to get your successful Papa John’s up and running.”
