Leading pizza franchise, Papa John’s has named its Plymouth store as the record holder, for the highest ‘pizza sales during one week’ in 2017. The Mutley Plain outlet is run by franchisees Jo and Austin Boland, who joined Papa John’s in 2013. The husband and wife team employ around 60 local staff in Mutley Plain plus their new Papa John’s in St Budeaux, also located in Plymouth.
Jo Boland explains: “We had been building up to a record week and the return of students to the region late last Spring pushed our pizza sales to the highest level ever! One challenge we faced is that our Mutley Plain store is one of the smallest Papa John’s in the UK. Our staff were pretty cosy serving up all the pizzas and so the lack of space was a big driver in opening our second outlet in St Budeaux, at the end of last year.
“We have been busy with promotional activity including digital brand awareness, traditional leafleting and we even support a local football team!” confirms Jo. “We are now pleased to report both outlets are doing brilliantly and we look forward to growing sales further in the future.”
Jo and Austin Boland’s achievement was recognised with a special award at Papa John’s recent Company franchise conference, held in Milton Keynes. For the first time, Papa John’s entire UK network; including store managers, key staff as well as franchise owners and suppliers, came together to celebrate successes and highlight outstanding team and individual achievements throughout the year at the ‘Champions of Better’ themed event.
Papa John’s is actively recruiting for more enthusiastic franchisees hungry to join the team.
As one of the largest pizza companies in the world, Papa John’s 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.
