Leading pizza franchise, Papa John’s, has announced the opening of its new Plymouth store. New Papa John’s franchisee, Jo Boland, has already needed to take on six more staff and is currently recruiting for more people to serve-up and deliver Papa John’s ever popular pizzas made from 100% fresh dough and renowned for their fresh ingredients and great natural flavour.
“Our official opening was marked with a ‘pizza party’ where 200 pizzas were given away following a complete re-fit of the store, which I previously ran as a branded Perfect Pizza outlet,” explains Jo. “I couldn’t believe it, it was so busy people were queuing to the corner of the street to try out the pizzas! Because the Papa John’s pizzas taste so great people are already coming back for more. The store is twice as busy as expected.
“The marketing support and training provided by Papa John’s has been second to none,” continues Jo. “Although I have a background in the industry, the training, including computer training covered every angle. The head office staff have also been really helpful. I needed to work with the Papa John’s team to completely re-fit the store and they were always there to help and would answer any questions at the drop of a hat. During the official launch I had all the support I needed and Papa John’s even sent a senior staff member from head office to help on the day.
“We have a young family so financial security is important, this launch needed to be a success,” confirms Jo. “Papa John’s have supported us with some of the cost of our opening offers to guarantee the new venture is off to a great start. They are genuinely invested in my success and I am impressed. I would certainly recommend Papa John’s to other potential franchisees. I am very much looking forward to growing the reputation of Papa John’s pizzas in Plymouth.”
Papa John’s is one of the largest pizza companies in the world and is rapidly expanding in 33 markets around the globe. Papa John’s, which is renowned for its product quality, has opportunities for potential franchisees throughout the UK including the key locations of Yorkshire, Manchester, West Midlands, East Midlands, South West, North East, Wales & Scotland.
