Leading pizza franchise, Papa John’s, has announced its newest franchisee, Vijay Kumar has opened the Company’s latest store in Blackpool. Former KFC manager, Vijay, will now deliver Papa John’s superior pizza to customers in and around the Lancashire seaside town.
“I worked for KFC for more than ten years, then went onto set up several of my own fried chicken shops,” explains Vijay. “However, I became aware of Papa John’s and thought it would be a great idea to become part of such a popular brand through becoming a franchisee. I will be responsible for my own stores and yet have all the support and back-up of a leading brand right behind me. Papa John’s is growing rapidly and this represents a great chance to cash-in!
“I have been able to take advantage of the current Papa John’s franchisee incentive scheme designed to help with setting up,” continues Vijay. “This means some free equipment including the pizza oven plus help with marketing and discounted fees. Any new business enterprise needs all the help it can get at the outset and so the incentive scheme is brilliant timing!
“I chose Blackpool as I know the area well,” confirms Vijay. “My local knowledge combined with my experience of the fast food industry plus the excellent training provided at Papa John’s newly refurbished headquarters, means I feel confident I have all the right ingredients to make my Papa John’s franchise a success!”
