Papa Johnís Goes for Glenrothes

Leading pizza franchise, Papa John’s, has announced it has opened in Glenrothes, Fife, Scotland.

Franchisee Siddhartha Chirumamilla (Sid) who also runs five Papa John’s in the South East of England plus the Scottish Rutherglen store has plans to open a total of seven Papa John’s in Scotland within the next couple of years.

Sid explains:
"I used to work for Papa John’s when I was studying for a degree in automobile engineering in London. I worked both in-store and as a driver in Welwyn Garden City branch. I knew the product was popular and the Company’s fresh approach and BETTER INGREDIENTS. BETTER PIZZA. concept always went down well with customers!

After my student days, I returned to India then came back to the UK in 2013, knowing I wanted to run my own business. Coincidentally the Welwyn Garden City Papa John’s became available and with help from a business loan from the franchising department of HSBC I purchased the franchise.

Since then, my Papa John’s portfolio has gone from strength to strength and now we will go for it in Glenrothes.  I see a great development opportunity for Papa John’s to deliver in Scotland and I have an experienced business partner, Vamsi Atluri, who will manage the Scottish stores for me. We are aiming to open three outlets in the region before the end of 2017.

The Papa John’s incentive scheme which helps franchisees when starting-up has been a driver to develop more stores.  It offers assistance with marketing, some free equipment and reduced royalty payments. It means we can capitalise on Papa John’s rapid growth and become a real part of the Company’s success story."

Anthony Round, Papa John's business development manager, confirms:
"Papa John’s now has over 350 stores across the UK and more than 5,000 around the world and we continue to grow.  As a result, we are actively recruiting for more enthusiastic franchisees hungry to join the team."

Papa John's is one of the largest pizza companies in the world and 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.
