Papa John’s celebrated the relaunch of its Egham store with a free lunch for local NHS workers in the Surrey town during its opening week (25 June-2 July 2022).
Multi-unit Papa John’s franchisee Abid Hussain, explains: “We have moved our Egham Papa John’s to a more central location on the High Street. We normally offer a discount to those working in the ambulance service or in our local hospital as a thank you for their valuable contribution to our community. What better way to celebrate the opening of our brand-new store than inviting all local NHS workers to enjoy a free lunch?
“The revamped store is really welcoming and has been updated with Papa John’s new branding which gives a bold, fresh and fun look. We have more free parking both in front and at the rear of 43 High Street for added convenience for our customers. The store is also much bigger and means we have been able to grow our team by creating seven new jobs, already filled by recruiting more local team members.”
Abid Hussain who first joined Papa John’s in 2016, now runs 19 Papa John’s in the Southeast and the Midlands. Before becoming a franchisee, Abid worked in advertising and marketing in London and was a consultant in a web firm.
Abid continues: “Running multiple franchised stores offers economies of scale in relation to ordering, marketing and it can make recruitment easier too. Once you’ve hit on a successful formula, why not replicate it many times over?
“However, my success wouldn’t be possible without my staff. I have really capable area and store managers and the team behind each of them ensures we deliver superb service and top-quality pizza every time. My Egham store manager has worked with me for three years and it’s great to be able to offer these opportunities and watch team members grow as they take on more responsibility as part of our Papa John’s family.”
