Leading pizza franchise, Papa John’s, has announced the opening of its new Sunderland store. It will be run by Sukhbir Gill and his business partner Lakhwinder Singh (Lucky) who also now also manage four other Papa John’s including Skegness.
"I joined Papa John’s from a rival pizza firm where worked for eight years. The Papa John’s franchise was attractive because it is growing so rapidly and so there are many opportunities for expansion. In addition, there is no question that the product is the best on the market. The pizzas are made with only freshest ingredients for a better flavour which tops the competition. So far, the customer feedback has been excellent!
Papa John’s head office staff have been particularly supportive. The whole team is motivated and they have been able to provide some very good incentives to help us grow our portfolio of stores to five in a very short space of time. These incentives include royalty reductions and deals on equipment, plus help with marketing to ensure we taste success quickly!
With the holiday season now in full swing, our Skegness store is really picking up in terms of sales, which is really exciting and is a great sign for the future of our business. For Sunderland, which is a big university town, we also anticipate a thriving enterprise. Our grand opening created a lot of interest and we aim to keep up the momentum with some very special offers to keep customers coming back for more!"
