Leading pizza franchise, Papa John’s, has announced it has opened in Denton, Manchester. This is the fifth store to be run by franchisee Amit Abhol (Rana), who has outlined plans to open 20 Papa John’s by 2020.
"Previously I was employed at a rival firm, based out of Northern Ireland, where I worked my way up from taking phone orders to regional operations director over 15 years. Although all training is provided by Papa John’s, my former experience has been important to ensure the rapid expansion of my own portfolio of stores.
One of the lessons I have learned over the years, is that pizza is really a people business. Providing a good structure and procedures and working to enable and motivate staff are all key to running a successful enterprise. As a result, we are heavily focused on training and developing staff to ensure our goals are aligned, namely, to provide the best pizza and service possible in line with Papa John’s 'BETTER INGREDIENTS. BETTER PIZZA' concept. This is how we keep customers coming back for more!
Running a growing business means staff have the opportunity to progress and take on a bigger slice of the action. We encourage and reward such commitment within our Papa John’s family, as the achievements of our staff have a direct relationship with our overall success as a business.
When it comes to people it is also worth mentioning the Papa John’s head office franchise support team who have been particularly helpful in relation to opening stores. As well as the back-up they provide, they have enabled us to take advantage of the current franchisee incentive scheme which offers deals on equipment, reduced fees and help with marketing which is all good news when starting up!
Denton in Manchester is a great location for us. It’s not far from our existing Stockport store and there is a real opportunity to target an untapped market. Our motivated team is now looking forward to serving-up some irresistible pizza to the local community! In addition, we aim to open another Papa John’s to widen our reach further before the end of the year."
As one of the largest pizza companies in the world, Papa John’s has opportunities for franchisees throughout the UK. 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.
