Leading pizza delivery brand Papa John’s is celebrating after being named as one of the UK’s top franchises.  From hundreds of entries across every sector, Papa John’s has been ranked six overall, in the prestigious Elite Franchise Top 100 (EF100) ef100-2022 – Elite Franchise (elitefranchisemagazine.co.uk) – a title the company will hold for the duration of 2022.

The EF100, which was established in 2017 in association with HSBC, recognises the sector’s leading franchised businesses and ranks them according to: longevity, size, contribution to the community, franchisee support, innovation plus their plans for future development.

Scott English, Brand Director of Elite Franchise said: “We feel that Papa John’s has well and truly earned their place in the Elite Franchise Top 100 list.  This definitive league table of the Top 100 Franchisors shows just what Britain has to offer. Each year, the ranking becomes more competitive, and this year has been no exception for our panel of industry-leading judges.

“At EF100 we take into account entrants’ sales and growth figures as well as the training and support systems in place for their network of franchisees.  Achieving this position is a testament to all that Papa John’s has achieved – they have consistently demonstrated a gold-standard level of franchising.”

Justin Gilbert Senior Operations Director, Papa John’s UK commented: “It’s an incredible honour for the Papa John’s brand to be recognised in this way.  The achievement underlines the hard work from every member of our team over the past few years, to grow our franchised business in new and innovative ways, and also to contribute to the communities we serve.  Our goal is now to continue to develop our high street presence and extend our partnerships with third party leisure venues to ensure our valued customers can add to the occasion by enjoying their favourite treat of top-quality Papa John’s pizza wherever and when they choose, opening-up new opportunities for franchisees at the same time.”
