Papa John's has been honoured as the 'best in class' for pizza deliveries, thanks to a prestigious industry award. Bestowed by the Pizza, Pasta and Italian Food Association, the Pizza Delivery award has been won by the Papa John's franchise on no less than five occasions within the past nine years. This certainly does demonstrate the brand's ongoing commitment to excellent customer service and high-quality product offerings.
The achievement was celebrated at a gala dinner held in London at the Lancaster Hotel. The awards were being held for the 24th time, thanks to the hard work of the Pizza, Pasta and Italian Food Association, which is the only trade body in the UK for the broad food category industry.
The awards were originally launched as part of a drive to improve industry standards and to formalise recognition of those businesses which were striving to implement them.
Dave Galvin, the UK Sales Manager of Papa John's, said that the team were incredibly delighted to have been recognised for their hard work and dedication. Their latest achievement had also given the franchise team a real boost as their concept continues to be popular and the approach of using just top-quality fresh ingredients and entirely fresh pizza dough was a success.
The brand also celebrated opening its 200th UK store and becoming the world's third-biggest pizza chain. Originally the brand was created by the legendary 'Papa' John Schnatter, who built the empire from scratch and actually began his operation by working in a broom cupboard within his father's pub. His vision and determination made it into the global food phenomenon it is today and there are now over 4,000 retail stores across an impressive 33 countries.
The brand's future growth prospects also look great, with the company planning to open 100 additional new stores within the next couple of years, creating a large number of new jobs in the process. This high-quality brand is already seeking new motivated potential franchisees with the desire and ability to take on potential key locations within the East and West Midlands, Yorkshire, the North East, Manchester, the South West, Wales and Scotland.
