Papa John's To Exhibit At South Wales Franchise Shows

Leading Pizza franchise, Papa John’s, has announced it will be exhibiting at the South Wales Franchise Show 1, to be held at the Swansea City Liberty Stadium on Thursday January 30, 2014 and the South Wales Franchise Show 2 at the Cardiff City Stadium on Friday January 31, as part of its continued UK franchisee recruitment drive. The shows are free for attendees and as well as Papa John’s, will feature more than 30 of the top UK, Irish & Overseas franchised brands.

“We have had a very positive response from other recent franchise shows we have attended so are excited to meet new potential franchisees at the two South Wales exhibitions,” confirmed Anthony Round, Business Development Manager at Papa John’s. “The momentum we gained last year means we now have more than 250 UK outlets and in order to deliver on our promise of having 600 UK stores over the next 10 years, we are actively recruiting franchisees.

"At the two South Wales shows we are looking forward to discussing the incentive packages we can currently offer ambitious individuals looking at a career as a Papa John’s franchisee,” explained Round. “This year, we have a regional focus and for those interested in opening new stores in Wales, the Midlands, North East, the North West and Scotland we are offering a 12 month royalty break if opened by July 2014 or a nine month royalty break for stores opening before the end of 2014. To get new franchisees off to a great start we are also supplying free oven and refrigerated equipment, plus an additional £10,000 of marketing spend for the store opening launch. The whole package could result in savings of 50k for your first Papa John’s store! These fantastic deals are only available for 2014 and are limited, so first come first served!

“At the exhibitions, we are also keen to talk to enthusiastic franchisees who are interested in becoming multiple site operators,” confirmed Round. “For example, currently we are offering no additional franchise fee to open further outlets.”

Round concluded: “The Papa John’s opportunity represents an exciting chance for individuals to invest in a rapidly growing business which is also a market leader in its field. Our pizzas are created only using the highest quality ingredients and 100% fresh dough to make a top quality pizza with a better natural flavour. Combine this with excellent customer service, rapid delivery times, a strong brand, comprehensive staff training and some hard hitting marketing support – Papa John’s is currently the official Pizza Partner of The Football League - and the franchise serves-up a fantastic offer for those looking for a quality investment opportunity.”
