Leading pizza franchise, Papa John’s, has announced the opening of its latest store in Bradley Stoke, Bristol. Franchisee, Jitesh Patel, joined Papa John’s in 2005 and already runs several Papa John’s outlets in the Midlands, now adding Bradley Stoke to his franchise portfolio.
“Jitesh is one of our most committed franchisees,” explains Anthony Round, business development manager, Papa John’s. “He bought his first Papa John’s franchise when he was just 20 years old and a few years ago won our prestigious ‘Franchisee of the Year Award’.
“As well as his own franchised stores he co-owns and runs two further Papa John’s in Leicestershire with his sister Nisha, employing around 50 people,” continues Round. “However, I know his ambitions don’t stop there: his long-term goal is to own 20 Papa John’s!
“Our growth is really accelerating and we now have 257 UK stores with over 4,500 worldwide, 1,200 of which are International,” confirms Round. “We continue to open new outlets in the UK and we are delighted to support Jitesh Patel in his latest venture.”
