“Our focus is on continued growth and our target is to increase [our total] to 300 by the end of 2014. To meet demand, we are actively recruiting new franchisees and particularly encouraging ambitious individuals who are keen to run multiple Papa John’s.”
Discussing its new franchise incentive scheme, Round added:
“The whole package could result in savings of £50,000 for your first Papa John’s store! These fantastic deals are only available for 2014 and are limited, so first come first served!”
