Wales is Hungry for More Papa John’s!


Feb 10, 2017

Leading pizza franchise, Papa John’s, has announced the opening of its latest store in Wales. Franchisee Clif Roberson, who will run the outlet, has recruited 22 local staff to serve-up Papa John’s top quality pizza in Pontypridd.

Clif Roberson makes up one third of the trio of local school-friends-turned-entrepreneurs who have also recently opened Papa John’s in Merthyr Tydfil and Cwmbran. Clif explains: “We were looking for an exciting business opportunity and have certainly found it in Papa John’s!  The company is growing rapidly and the support is tremendous.

“So far, we have all been surprised and delighted by the popularity of new our stores, both of which have already doubled original forecasts, seeing strong repeat business. Hot on the heels of Cwmbran and Merthyr, we are now looking forward to introducing Papa John’s to Pontypridd, plus opening two further Welsh stores this autumn!

“Pontypridd is a superb location for us,” continues Clif. “Just over ten miles north of Cardiff, the town has a sizeable student population. We have acquired a former KFC site, adjacent to the University which is a large modern building overlooking the main road, so we anticipate lots of passing trade keen to taste our tempting pizza!

“Staff have already been trained-up in our other stores and so are ready to deliver on our Papa John’s promise of ‘Better Ingredients, Better Pizza’,” confirms Clif. “We only use the freshest ingredients for a better natural flavour and our Welsh customers just keep coming back: they really are hungry for more!”

Papa John's is one of the largest pizza companies in the world and has opportunities for franchisees throughout the UK. Papa John’s which was recently named as UK National Pizza Delivery Chain for the sixth time, is currently running an incentive scheme to help franchisees in the early stages of growing their businesses which includes discounted royalty fees, contribution towards marketing spend plus free equipment for new stores. 

Help is provided with location selection and full turn-key opening of stores.  As a franchise, the Company supplies all the assistance needed to get your successful Papa John’s up and running. To find out more about the lead pizza franchise 'Click Here'
