Papa Johnís serves up a slice in Bicester
Papa Johnís is celebrating the opening of yet another one of its stores in the county of Oxfordshire.
Papa Johnís franchisee Bally Brar has been celebrating the opening of his third Papa Johnís location. The newest of the pizza franchiseís stores is located in Bicester, Oxfordshire and joins Brarís two other stores across the county in Abingdon and Didcot.
Since Brar joined the franchise in 2014, heíd made it clear that his ambitions were big and that he wanted to quickly become a multi-store franchisee. He explained:
ďI was always keen to run multiple Papa Johnís located close to each other. Iím now on-target to open five or six outlets in the Oxfordshire area. There are certainly economies of scale when running several stores. Staffing and recruitment is made easier and marketing can be done for the whole area too. For example: we are using Oxford local radio for advertising and to entice new customers, as this covers all three Papa Johnís in the area.Ē

Brar had previously enjoyed a career as an area manager for a rival pizza company, but knew he wanted a change that would allow him to be his own boss.
ďPapa Johnís was expanding rapidly and I wanted to take advantage of the business opportunity that sort of momentum creates. Over the past few years, the head office team have been really supportive, helping me grow my store numbers and the Papa Johnís franchisee incentive scheme has been invaluable to help me open the latest outlet. Deals on equipment and reduced franchise fees mean I can focus on building sales and local marketing right at the outset.Ē
The Bicester store has Papa Johnís brand-new store layout and design and Brar hopes he can continue to tempt the customers in for a slice of delicious pizza.
ďItís early days but so far, the customers really like the new store design! They are happy to sit and relax while waiting for their orders, or to take time browsing the menu. It has created a welcoming atmosphere and buzz in store. With the help of my team, Iím now looking forward to opening more Papa Johnís locally over the next 12 months.Ē
Papa Johnís has more than 400 locations across the UK, but itís still on the lookout for ambitious franchisees to join its ever-expanding network.
