“I joined Papa John’s in 2001 after being made redundant following 20 years in the automotive engineering industry,” explains Manj. “I needed a change and was recommended to Papa John’s through a friend. At the time, the brand was not as well-known as it is now but after a little research I realised the company’s focus on superior quality pizza was a recipe for success and could be what I was looking for.
“Training and support was thorough and I haven’t looked back,” continues Manj. “My stores have enjoyed 20% growth in the past few years and recently it became clear I needed to open a third store in Coventry to satisfy demand. With assistance from Papa John’s special franchisee incentive scheme, which offers deals on equipment and discounted royalties when starting up, the new store on Holyhead Road is now open. It means I have the whole city covered!
“The new store has created almost 20 jobs for local staff and there are possible plans in the pipeline for me to open another Papa John’s in the future. As the company grows it serves up further opportunities and that is exciting from a franchisee’s perspective and also positive for local communities. I am now one of Papa John’s longest serving franchisees and with the help of my team, I am looking forward to continuing to deliver on our promise of “Better Ingredients, Better Pizza’ for a few more years to come!”
