The Papa John's Fast Food Business is one of the largest Pizza Delivery Franchises in the world, with over 4,800 stores worldwide and rapidly expanding in 40 international markets.
Papa John's now have over 300 stores open and trading in the UK. This is due to their tried and tested formula and an established Bristish management team (with many years experience in franchising and the pizza industry).
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 John's (GB) Ltd has been named UK Pizza Delivery Operator for 6 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.
