Franchisee Takes Advantage of Papa John’s Incentive to Open Ilkeston


Feb 10, 2017

Leading pizza franchise, Papa John’s, has announced Abdul Kasana has taken advantage of the Company’s franchisee incentive scheme to open in Ilkeston, Derbyshire. Abdul who already runs the Nottingham Arnold outlet and Nottingham Bulwell, also plans to open two further franchised Papa John’s within the next year.

Former education consultant, Abdul, explains: “Papa John’s incentive scheme which offers deals on equipment, fees and marketing has been a great help when it comes to opening new stores. The recent TV advertising campaign, leafleting plus digital marketing also all go to create awareness then it is down to the team to deliver top quality pizza combined with great service.

“The new store location is right in the center of Ilkeston, between McDonald’s and KFC which will be sure to attract hungry customers,” explains Abdul. “To get off to a great start, we are giving away free pizzas for the opening and 25 new staff have all be trained-up and are ready to deliver! This is where having other stores is helpful as new staff have already been given hands-on experience at Arnold and Bulwell and so can hit the ground running.

“Papa John’s concept of ‘Better Ingredients, Better Pizza’ means our pizzas are made with 100% fresh dough for a better natural flavor. This has proved particularly popular in our other stores and  now, again with the help of Papa John’s franchisee incentive scheme, I am looking forward to bringing more quality pizza to the market by opening more Papa John’s in the very near future.”

Papa John's is one of the largest pizza companies in the world and has opportunities for franchisees throughout the UK.  Papa John’s is currently running an incentive scheme to help franchisees in the early stages of growing their businesses which includes deals on equipment, royalty fees and marketing. Full training is provided plus help with location selection and full turnkey solution to opening the store.
