To become a successful Papa John’s franchisee you need to be motivated, enthusiastic, hard-working and want to be part of a growing team.  Exceptional interpersonal and people skills are essential, as you’ll be dealing with customers as well as leading your team on a daily basis.

In addition to excellent written and spoken communication skills, you’ll have to be an organiser with a can-do attitude – someone who gets things done.  You’ll have to be dedicated and passionate enough to adapt to a proven way of working. And you’ll need the ability to roll your sleeves up and get stuck in, which means everything from making pizza through to managing staff.
