Papa John's Franchise | Pizza Delivery Business

Papa John’s tried-and-tested formula, along with an established British management team with many years experience in franchising and the pizza industry, means a solid foundation for a very promising future. Papa John’s now have over 350 stores open and trading in the UK; working towards the goal of 600+ units.

Annual worldwide sales exceed $3 billion and now Great Britain is spearheading the international expansion of the brand.

Since the first UK stores opened in summer 2000, customer feedback has been excellent so much so that Papa John's (GB) Ltd has been named UK Pizza Delivery Operator six times by the Pizza, Pasta and Italian Food Association.

Prospects for the right people are outstanding; particularly bearing in mind that home delivery is the fastest growing sector of the market. Pizza is universally popular and unaffected by seasons or fashions.

Independent research shows that in the UK, pizza consumption is expanding to similar levels as those in the United States where people eat three times as much pizza.

Papa John's have a number of very tempting incentive deals to give you a helping hand from day one, ensuring you will be quick to taste success...including:

Is a Pizza Delivery Business for you?

Papa John's are looking for individuals, couples or business partnerships with exceptional interpersonal and people skills. These are essential as you'll be dealing with customers and leading your team on a daily basis.

You also need to have excellent written and verbal communication skills, and the right mindset.

Papa John's Franchisees are organisers with a can-do attitude – they are people who get things done. You will need to be dedicated and passionate as well as being able to adapt to a proven way of working.

Papa John's need people who are not afraid to 'roll their sleeves up and get stuck in', which means everything from making pizza through to administration.

People with the right combination of drive, enthusiasm and business experience are ideal Papa John's candidates.

Being a Papa John's Franchisee is a challenge which calls for initiative and determination, and no small amount of dedication. But, if you have a comprehensive understanding of business it's a fantastic opportunity - one that can be personally and professionally rewarding, as well as financially.

Previous fast-food or food experience is not a pre-requisite; some franchisees did not have previous catering or retailing experience. The most successful franchisees are entrepreneurial, owner/operators who have excellent people skills.
