Papa John’s ‘on target’ to open 50 new UK stores this year

Pizza chain looking to recruit “enthusiastic” franchisees to its network

Leading pizza franchise Papa John’s has announced it is ‘on target’ to open 50 new outlets before the end of the year, having already opened stores in six UK locations over the last month.

Following its “biggest and best” franchisee incentive scheme for 2014, the chain has added new stores in West Ealing, Bishop’s Stortford, Cheltenham, Durham, Warrington and Stafford, and is keen to build on its growth so far.

Established in 1984, Papa John’s claims to be one of the largest pizza companies in the world and has over 4,300 outlets worldwide with 250 stores across Britain.

It has opportunities for prospective franchisees throughout the UK and is seeking “enthusiastic franchisees who are excited about running their own franchise and passionate about the Papa John’s concept.”

Anthony Round, business development manager for Papa John’s commented: “The whole Papa John’s team is focused on UK growth for 2014.

“We have some fantastic incentive deals currently on offer to support franchisees and get new outlets open and off to a great start and these are proving particularly popular! There are many more [stores] in the pipeline – so watch this space!”
