Papa John’s has announced it will be looking for additional “non-traditional” franchised outlets to join the franchise as the company expands into further venues in 2021.
The group suggested that help is provided for businesses wanting to join the franchise from location selection, growth incentives and full turn-key opening of stores, as well as “world-class support”, comprehensive training and national marketing.
As a franchisor, the company supplies all the assistance needed to get a successful Papa John’s “up and running”.
Justin Gilbert, director of business development Papa John’s UK, explained that as the group grows in popularity, it wants to ensure that customers can “relax and enjoy their favourite treat” in even more locations which suit them.
He said: “Papa John’s has been able to provide a year-round revenue stream the successful franchised outlets already located on holiday parks in the UK for example. For stadiums or other leisure venues, the attraction of Papa John’s can add to the proposition. One existing site even offers pizza parties for visitors.
“Non-traditional franchised outlets generally have a slightly different business model compared to our high-street retail stores. They may be collection only or may have reduced or seasonal opening hours, have a pizza slice offer or a flexible menu.”
He added: “Just like our pizzas, we aim to ensure we have the right ingredients for everyone and so now, we can offer flexible franchise options to suit a bespoke development plan. This may be a franchise package which includes a fully fitted out store, a kiosk, modular unit, or a mobile kitchen.
“We are hungry for perfection and so by thinking differently and finding out what will make a great outcome, we work backwards to create innovative solutions that are great for our customers and franchisees. We are open to new ideas and look forward to working with operators who are committed to delivering to the communities they serve.”
