Leading pizza franchise, Papa John’s, has opened in Elm Park, London. A few miles from Romford, the new store is run by business partners and franchisees Parry Singh and Tony Kalsi.

Parry Singh commented: “We are delighted now to open in Elm Park. The area has a mixed demographic with many families and students living in the local area. We have been busy since opening and have further promotions planned to grow our valued customer base.

“I first joined Papa John’s when I came to the UK eight years ago,” continues Parry. “I had graduated in English and Political Studies in India and was looking for a good business opportunity. This is when I found Papa John’s. People need to eat every day and so I was attracted to the certainty and longevity of the food business. The exceptional quality of the Papa John’s pizza ensures popularity and won me over, very soon, I was keen to taste success with Papa John’s!

“I had known Tony Kalsi for many years and so a joint venture made good business sense. Including Elm Park, we now run four Papa John’s, employing around 70 people and have plans to expand further. I am responsible for operations which includes running the stores on a day-to-day basis and Tony manages the marketing and business promotion. The division of responsibility plays to our strengths and works very well. We now look forward to delivering on the Papa John’s promise of “BETTER INGREDIENTS. BETTER PIZZA” as we continue to expand.”

Papa John’s is one of the largest pizza companies in the world and 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 open your successful Papa John’s.
