Leading pizza franchise Papa John’s has opened its latest store in Evesham, Worcestershire. Franchisee, Atif Maroof Zar and his brothers Umair Ramay and Amir Maroof now run eight Papa John’s including Evesham, with two more scheduled to open before the end of the year.
Atif Maroof Zar explains: “We are hungry to grow our multi-unit franchise operation! As well as increasing profits it means we can offer employment opportunities for more people and that’s important to us.
“We work hard and have fun as a team, and now are putting the back-office infrastructure in place for bigger and better expansion. We now have our own payroll manager, area manager plus each store has two branch managers. It’s a team effort to continue deliver the best quality pizza to our communities for everyone to enjoy and all our staff play their part.”
Atif previously worked at two rival pizza firms and also managed a Papa John’s, before he became a franchisee in 2017. Atif continues: “Evesham is part of a cluster of stores we run including our Papa John’s in Stratford Upon Avon, Redditch and Bromsgrove which helps streamline the delivery of supplies, recruitment and general management. It also means we have the back up in place to ensure everything runs as efficiently and smoothly as possible too. Getting these processes right is important as we have a taste for expansion and continue to grow! There is no limit to what we can achieve with Papa John’s.
“The central team has been able to offer some tempting incentives to help us expand too. Assistance with marketing and deals on equipment show Papa John’s commitment to multi-unit franchisees. This contribution has been a key ingredient of our success so far.”
For those interested in running a multi-unit Papa John’s franchise or opening-up in a ‘non-traditional’ location, incentives are on offer in addition to world-class support, comprehensive training and national marketing. As a franchisor, the Company supplies all the assistance needed to get your successful Papa John’s up and running.
