Pizza company Papa John’s, which claims to be the third largest in the world, has added two new franchise outlets in the West Midlands to its growing network.

The openings in Birmingham Central and Brown Hills, Walsall form part of the pizza chain’s plans to expand its brand across the UK having recently recruited a new franchisee in Southend.

The pizza chain expects to open more than 100 new stores in the next few years following its recent $2m incentive which offers franchisees launching this year a free oven and point of sale system plus a £10,000 marketing package.

Opportunities are available for potential franchisees throughout the UK, with prices starting from £175,000 to £225,000, across its key sites of Yorkshire, Manchester, West Midlands, East Midlands, South West, North East, Wales and Scotland. Franchisee for the new Brown Hills store, Tony Kular, who already owns four other Papa John’s outlets commented:

“We are delighted to have been able to open our fifth outlet in Brown Hills to supply top quality pizza to the local community.

“From a business point of view the franchise offers an excellent opportunity to run an expanding business and we are looking forward to further growth through new outlets in the future.”
