Daily Life of a Franchisee
The day in the life of a PJ’s franchisee is varied: from general office duties, to stock ordering and rotation, right through to taking telephone and over-the-counter orders, and preparing and baking the pizza. Our franchisees will also deliver the pizza to the customer’s door and will chat about the product and services we offer to ensure 100% satisfaction.
