Papa Johns are Expanding! & Wed Love You To Join Us
We are looking for enthusiastic business partners now!

Papa Johns is one of the largest pizza delivery franchise companies in the world; we now have well over 350 sites open and trading in the UK, and over 5,000 in more than 40 international markets.

GRAB A SLICE OF THE ACTION!

Papa Johns tried-and-tested formula, along with an established British management team with many years experience in franchising and the pizza industry, means a solid foundation for a very promising future. Papa Johns now have over 350 stores open and trading in the UK; working towards the goal of 600+ units.

Annual worldwide sales exceed $3 billion and now Great Britain is spearheading the international expansion of the brand.

Since the first UK stores opened in summer 2000 customer feedback has been excellent, so much so that Papa Johns (GB) Ltd has been named UK Pizza Delivery Operator six times by the Pizza, Pasta and Italian Food Association.

Prospects for the right people are outstanding, particularly bearing in mind that home delivery is the fastest growing sector of the market. Pizza is universally popular and unaffected by seasons or fashions. Independent research shows that in the UK, pizza consumption is expanding to similar levels as those in the United States, where people eat three times as much pizza.

Getting You Off to A Great Start!

We have a number of very tempting incentive deals to give you a helping hand from day 1, ensuring you will be quick to taste success...including: 

  • A FREE Oven
  • Royalty reduction programme
  • Targeted marketing support 

Financial Information

This may vary and depends on several factors such as site chosen and building costs, but typically an investment of between £170,000 and £225,000 (excluding freehold & VAT) of which £100,000 should be in liquid funds.

The initial agreement is for 10 years. Subject to lease and other considerations, the franchise agreement is renewable by the franchisee, currently at no additional charge

What is the Franchise Fee?

The franchisee fee is £18,500+ VAT for each franchise unit. You will also be responsible for the rent, rates and utility costs of the store for the term of the franchise agreement.

The Franchise Package

At the start of the franchise agreement there is an initial fee payable and that gives you the following:

  • The right to use the Papa John's trademarks.
  • The Papa John's system for preparing, marketing and selling food products.
  • The right to our information, specifications, know-how, and other confidential and proprietary information.

Included in the indicative total investment cost, there is also an allowance for management, and staff training plus initial marketing support prior to opening your store.

Most of the start-up costs are comprised of the building, fit-out and equipment costs which will vary depending on your site. The package also includes all fixtures and fittings, signage and internal marketing collateral, ovens, EPOS system and small wares as well as all agents fees, franchise fee, marketing, project management and pre-opening expenses.

Territories Available:

We have opportunities for potential franchisees throughout the UK.

Further training courses are offered to franchisees and their team members on an ongoing basis, both classroom and internet based.

Extensive and continuous support from a dedicated franchise business manager and our UK and European campus staff in Milton Keynes will assist you with recruiting and training new staff, marketing, product control, pricing and other operational areas.

The ideal Papa John's franchisee

We are looking for individuals, couples or business partnerships with exceptional interpersonal and people skills. These are essential as you'll be dealing with customers and leading your team on a daily basis. You also need to have excellent written and verbal communication skills, and the right mindset.

Our franchisees are organisers with a can-do attitude they are people who get things done. You will need to be dedicated and passionate, as well as being able to adapt to a proven way of working. We need people who are not afraid to roll their sleeves up and get stuck in, which means everything from making pizza through to administration.

People with the right combination of drive, enthusiasm and business experience are ideal Papa Johns candidates. Being a Papa Johns franchisee is a challenge which calls for initiative and determination, and no small amount of dedication. But, if you have a comprehensive understanding of business it's a fantastic opportunity - one that can be personally and professionally rewarding, as well as financially.

Previous fast-food or food experience is not a pre-requisite; some of our franchisees did not have previous catering or retailing experience. The most successful franchisees are entrepreneurial, owner/operators who have excellent people skills.

Papa John's's history

Papa Johns humbly began in a knocked out broom closet, that was converted into a small pizza shop by founder John Schnatter in 1984. Using only the money he received from his sold Camaro, he bought used equipment and began selling to the taverns customers. Despite the cheap equipment, his pizzas proved to be of great quality. At present his pizzas are recreated everyday in more than 4000 stores worldwide.
