Global pizza franchise Papa John’s has unveiled its franchise incentive scheme for new stores opening in specific areas in 2014.

Labelled its ‘biggest and best’ franchise deal, the pizza company is offering new franchisees access to free oven and refrigerator equipment, royalty holiday and £10,000 worth of marketing spend.

Running for a limited time, the scheme will apply to franchisees opening new sites in Wales, the Midlands, North East, the North West and Scotland with 12 month royalty breaks available to those that open stores before July 2014 and a nine month royalty break for stores opened before the end of 2014.

The announcement forms part of the pizza chain’s plan to expand its UK franchise network, which currently stands at 250 outlets, to over 600 stores within the next ten years.

Anthony Round, Papa John’s business development manager, commented: “To help prospective franchisees bring our […] pizza to even more UK customers we are now excited to announce our ‘biggest and best’ incentive scheme to-date for 2014.

“The whole package could result in savings of £50,000 for your first Papa John’s store!”

Discussing additional franchise opportunities, Round continued:

“In the next year, we will actively be encouraging enthusiastic franchisees who are keen to become multiple site operators. For example, we are currently offering no additional franchise fee to open further outlets.”
