Leading pizza franchise, Papa John’s, has opened in Bracknell, Berkshire.  The new store will be run by Gurminder Bains (Barny) and his wife Tina, who also own successful franchised Papa John’s in Wokingham and Reading.  Around 20 new local staff have been recruited to deliver Papa John’s top-quality pizza for the Bracknell outlet, which is located on Market Street, close to the train station.

Gurminder Bains explains: “I joined Papa John’s as a franchisee eight years ago.  We employ some good managers to run our stores as I still work full-time at my day job in logistics and Tina has a full-time job too.

“We were keen to build a joint business together for the future, within a growing industry.  Everyone’s got to eat and so food seemed a good option!   We had tried Papa John’s pizza and knew the quality was outstanding.  The Company’s focus on “BETTER INGREDIENTS. BETTER PIZZA.” means only the best and freshest ingredients are used for a better natural flavour, including fresh dough – never frozen.  It simply tastes better!   For this reason, it was easy to see why the company was growing at such a rate and we wanted to become part of that team.

“Over the years our success has meant we have also been able to put something back,” continues Barny.  “Once a week we work with the Sikh Temple and set up in Town Hall Square supplying free food to the homeless.  In a typical evening we can give pizza out to around 130 people.  A number of our staff join us as regular volunteers too.  We also support young carers in Wokingham, providing free food for events.  These little things give meaning to what we do and we are pleased to help those who are less fortunate in our local community, in the small way we can.”

As one of the largest pizza companies in the world, Papa John’s has opportunities for franchisees throughout the UK.  Help is provided with location selection 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.
