Leading pizza franchise, Papa John’s, has announced its latest incentive package will help franchisees ‘deliver the dough’ in 2017. Special deals on marketing, equipment and discounted royalties are all on the table for qualifying franchisees setting up stores within the next year.
‘By offering a helping hand right at the outset, our aim is to provide franchisees with all the right ingredients to enable them to taste success quickly,’ confirms Anthony Round, business development manager, Papa John’s. ‘Many of our franchisees start out with just one store and go on to open multiple Papa John’s. We now have almost 350 stores in the UK and we are still growing rapidly!
‘The benefits of our franchisee incentive deal for 2017 specifically include a 15 month royalty reduction programme, a free pizza oven (subject to terms and conditions) plus a marketing launch package provided by Papa John’s,’ confirms Round. ‘This targeted support has been specifically designed to help franchisees in their first year of trading, in order to improve cash flow, reduce capital spending and drive sales from day one.
‘Our ‘Better Ingredients, Better Pizza’ concept continues to prove popular and we are actively recruiting new franchisees who are keen to bring our superior quality pizza to new areas of the UK,’ continues Round. ‘Franchisees don’t need any direct experience of the industry as we provide all the necessary training. However, individuals do need to be motivated, enthusiastic, hardworking and want to be part of a growing team. Good interpersonal and people skills are essential, as franchisees deal with customers as well as lead a team on a daily basis.
‘In return, our dedicated team supports franchisees through the entire process of opening their franchised Papa John’s including help with location selection and full turnkey solution to opening the store,’ explains Round. “Through our latest incentive deal, we are looking forward to working with more new franchisees all hungry to become part of our success story by opening-up more Papa John’s stores throughout the UK.’
