Papa John’s ‘Adds Up’ for New Eastleigh Franchisee

Tony Noyce (Deputy Mayor - Eastleigh), Serhan Cinar (Franchisee) Janice Noyce (Deputy Mayor's wife) Papa John’s, a leading pizza franchise, has announced new franchisee - Serhan Cinar - has opened the company’s latest store in Eastleigh, Hampshire. Cinar plans to open a further two Papa John’s in the region early next year and has a long-term plan to run between 10 and 20 outlets.

“As a former accountant and auditor, I knew the sums ‘added up’ for the Papa John’s franchise,” explained Cinar. “My family has operated in the food industry since the 1960s and I have often helped out in the family business. I knew a desk job wasn’t really for me, so over the past five years I have researched various franchises. However, I felt many of the major food franchises had reached market saturation. Papa John’s, on the other hand, is a fresh and exciting concept with plenty of potential for expansion.

“I am very much looking forward to introducing the Papa John’s concept of ‘better ingredients, better pizza’ to the local community of Eastleigh,” continued Cinar. “The staff at Papa John’s head office have been really supportive and helpful to get the store up and running. Initially, I will be ‘hands on’ managing the outlet then, as I open new stores, I will train and bring in managers and good staff from the local area. My ultimate goal is to open up to 20 Papa John’s in carefully selected locations, bringing much employment to the area.“

Papa John’s is the only branded pizza chain to use only 100% fresh dough, giving a better natural flavour and a unique tomato sauce is made from the best Californian tomatoes, picked and packed from vine to can in just six hours.
