Papa John'sTraining

We offer five weeks’ training, three of which are classroom-based at our training centre in Milton Keynes and the other three of which are in a store where you will learn the practical side of the operation.

Following successful completion you will be awarded our prestigious Restaurant Owners Certificate, allowing you to go on and operate you own store.

Daily Life of a Franchisee

A day in the life of a Papa John’s franchisee is varied: from general office duties, to stock ordering and rotation, managing staff, right through to taking telephone and over-the-counter orders, and preparing and baking the pizza. Our franchisees’ staff will also deliver the pizza to the customer’s door and will chat about the product and services with customers to ensure 100% satisfaction.
