Mohammed Tanveer (Tan), explains: “Before joining Papa John’s as franchisees, myself and my wife and business partner did our homework! I had worked for a rival pizza firm for seven years in various roles and my wife gave up banking for Barclay’s to work part-time in another well-known pizza chain restaurant. However, we soon realised, the product quality at Papa John’s was a big differentiator in the market and a recipe for success, so we purchased our first store, also in Northants, in 2013.
“We worked hard and focused on providing great customer service with a new team of staff and a superb product. After three years due to the success of the first store, we were able to open our second Northampton Papa John’s,” continues Tan. “In addition, Papa John’s franchisee incentive scheme designed for start-ups has delivered a helping hand at just the right time! We anticipate the funding for the most expensive item – the pizza oven - plus reduced royalty payments, will really help us on our way to a successful launch!
“Papa John’s recent TV advertising has also supported the brand’s UK growth and our pizza has never been more popular! We are looking forward to potentially adding further stores in the region in the future and providing more jobs for our local community too.”
Papa John's is one of the largest pizza companies in the world and has opportunities for franchisees throughout the UK. Papa John’s was recently named as UK National Pizza Delivery Chain for the sixth time. For franchisees, help is provided with location selection and full turn-key opening of stores.
