Papa Johnís has named its top franchisee who owns five stores or less for 2019 at its biggest ever franchise conference.

Pizza franchise Papa Johnís announced its Franchise Owner of the Year for 2019 at its largest ever UK franchise conference. The conference brought franchisees from across the UK together to share in the achievements of their peers and find out whatís in store for 2019.

Abid Hussain, who runs five Papa Johnís locations across the South West, was named as Franchise Owner of the Year (for five stores or less). He expressed his delight at the win and thanked those who helped him claim the title.

ďI wasnít expecting to win an award at all! However, my success is really down to my staff. I have great managers working in all my stores and the team behind each of them ensures we deliver fabulous service and top-quality pizza every time. Motivating the teams and ensuring they have what they need in terms of equipment plus good training is key to keeping the best people. I am proud that all my managers have been with me since I joined Papa Johnís in 2016 and we have grown the business together. I know that if my people are happy then so are our customers: it makes good business sense.Ē

After working in advertising and marketing for most of his career, Hussain wanted to take his career in a different direction.

ďI was looking for a new challenge and a friend of mine ran a Papa Johnís store. I did some research and thought buying a franchise could be a great move for me. The rest is history! I have plans to open several more stores in the future so am looking forward to growing my portfolio of outlets with the help of my great team plus the support of Papa Johnís right behind us.Ē

Phil Gaffer, QFP of Papa Johnís, congratulated Hussain on his win.

ďAbidís award win is well deserved. I know several of his managers were also nominated for awards at the conference, which is a testament to the strength of his training and management skills. It is great to be able to recognise the hard work and dedication of Abidís whole team in this way.Ē
