Brothers Plan to Grow ‘Bigger and Better’ with Papa John’s Multi-Unit Opportunity

November 22, 2019

Papa John’s franchisee, Atif Maroof Zar and his brothers Umair Ramay and Amir Maroof have recognized the potential in running a multi-unit franchise operation with the opening of their fourth Papa John’s store in Bristol Kingswood. Hungry to expand further, a fifth opening is set to follow early next year.
Atif explains: “Being a multi-unit franchisee is hard work but there is more potential to develop. Our aim is to become ‘bigger and better’ and only Papa John’s offers this chance for expansion!  
“As a team, myself and my brothers work well together to manage all the stores.  Umair is focused on staff, looking after recruitment and timetables to ensure we have the right people working at the right time. Amir manages the food ordering processes and I oversee the operations and marketing of the business. It’s a real family affair!
“I worked at two rival pizza firms previously and, also as a manager at a Papa John’s store, before deciding to become a franchisee in 2017.  With Papa John’s, it was clear that the food quality was much higher than any other brand and so we expected to sell more pizza and we did!   Hinkley was the first franchised outlet.  It came up for sale and I went for it! We also run Redditch, Bromsgrove and now Bristol Kingswood.
“Papa John’s has been able to offer some tempting incentives to help us expand. Assistance with marketing and deals on equipment show Papa John’s commitment to multi-unit franchisees. This contribution is one of the key ingredients for our success so far.”
