Training and Development

Training and development is a crucial part in a building a successful business in any industry. Within Papa John’s, we are passionate about training to ensure you and your team are the best they can be for long term prosperity.

Our Global operations Support & Training Team (GOST) are responsible for creating the tools and materials for the training and development of franchisee’s, store managers and team members. Our training includes new team member orientation, in-store and delivery training, core management skills training and new product or program implementation.

For new franchisees joining the Papa John’s family, you will be required to complete an intensive six week management training programme. The management programme requires all new franchisees to learn both the hands-on skills needed, and the theory behind our Papa John’s processes.  The programme schedule is split between spending time in a Papa John’s store and at our Head Office located in Milton Keynes.

Upon graduation you will be ready to continue your Papa John’s journey and open a store. Don’t worry, we won’t just leave you after your initial training.  The GOST team provide on-site training and operating support before, during and after the opening of your first and second store to ensure the very best start. As you become a more seasoned operator this will be reduced, with additional support available upon request.  The great news is that you will be allocated a Franchise Business Manager (FBM) who is an experienced operator and will be at hand to offer business and operational support on an ongoing basis as your business grows.
