Papa Johnís Franchisees Open Sixth Store in 18 Months

Leading pizza franchise, Papa John’s, has announced franchisees John O’Brien and Clif Roberson have opened their sixth store within 18 months. 

The school friends from Merthyr Tydfil turned business entrepreneurs, now run Papa John’s throughout South Wales including: Cwmbran, Pontypridd and Merthyr Tydfil.  Their newest franchised Papa John’s in Yate, just north of Bristol, is their first outlet to be located outside Wales.

Clif Roberson confirms:
"We always had a master plan! We put a management structure in place from day one to enable us to expand rapidly.  We are delighted that all our store managers have been selected through internal promotion from our original staff.  It’s great to see how many of our people have the right ingredients for success and how they have progressed through the opportunity that Papa John’s provides.
From an operations point of view, we have been able to take advantage of Papa John’s current incentive scheme to open-up in Yate.  This means Papa John’s has put a great deal on the table, to give us a helping hand with equipment and marketing to ensure we can get off to a really good start.  This deal will also come into effect with our next Papa John’s opening scheduled for next month – it is sure to be a recipe for success! 
So far our journey with Papa John’s has been quite an adventure!  One major highlight was being named as Papa John’s UK franchisees of the Year in 2016.  Myself and my wife flew to Colorado to receive our award.  It was an honour to meet the Global team. Our expansion doesn’t stop here though.  We aim to continue to satisfy demand for our top-quality pizza made with only the finest ingredients and fresh dough for a better natural flavour.  We are currently on-track to have a total of 15 Papa John’s up and running within the next couple of years.”
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 open your successful Papa John’s.
