Residents of Stroud are set to enjoy a taste of Papa John’s this summer as the leading pizza franchise opens a brand-new store in the Gloucestershire market town. The Stroud store has created more than 15 new jobs with the team now ready to make, bake and deliver fresh Papa John’s pizza to the local community.
Amit Pancholi UK director of business development, Papa John’s confirms: “Our aim is to create more convenience for our customers. Therefore, as a brand, we continue to expand throughout the UK and the Stoud opening follows the successful launch of Glastonbury and Midsomer Norton in the region this year. By opening Papa John’s in more trade zones, it means we can supply our top-quality pizza to more communities across the UK while maintaining quick delivery times as the company’s popularity continues to grow.
“We are also exploring further flexible franchise opportunities by developing partnerships to extend our reach in non-traditional locations too. By working with holiday resorts, sports stadiums and leisure venues, so many more people can enjoy the treat of Papa John’s at home, on holiday or wherever suits them! This may mean partners investing in a full Papa John’s store which can deliver to a venue’s visitors plus local residents, or adding branded mobile delivery units serving hungry customers at several sites on a holiday resort for example.
“For us, it’s about being where our customers are. Our Stroud opening now means Papa John’s pizza can be the ingredient to bring people together so they can add to the fun by sharing their favourite pizza with family and friends, making any occasion even more memorable.”
For those interested in running a multi-unit franchise or opening-up in a ‘non-traditional’ location, Papa John’s offers incentives in addition to world-class support, comprehensive training and national marketing. As a franchisor, Papa John’s supplies all the assistance needed to get your successful Papa John’s up and running.
