Papa John’s Multi Unit Franchisee Adds Three New Stores

 Leading pizza franchise Papa John’s has announced new store openings in Totton in Hampshire, Southsea in Essex plus a further outlet in Southampton.   All run by multi-unit franchisee Abid Hussain, the additional Papa John’s mark the continued expansion of the brand, as its franchisees deliver “BETTER INGREDIENTS. BETTER PIZZA.” to even more communities across the UK.

Before joining Papa John’s in 2016, Abid worked in advertising and marketing in London and was a consultant in a web firm.  He now runs almost 20 Papa John’s stores in various towns and cities around the country.

Papa John’s franchisee Abid Hussain explains: “It was a friend who first introduced me to Papa John’s.  I did my research and became a partner in my cousin’s Taunton store before purchasing that and becoming a franchisee.  Since then, I haven’t looked back!  My goal is to continue to expand, bringing everyone’s favourite pizza treat to more and more families and friends to enjoy together in new locations, as soon as suitable sites become available.”

Amit Pancholi, UK director of business development, Papa John’s confirms: “Abid’s commitment and work ethic and adherence to our core values is inspiring.  With the support of his extended team, he has built a substantial multi-unit franchise operation.  His hunger for success ensures his passion for great service, achieved by empowering his people, always delivers.  As a franchisor, we congratulate Abid on opening these new stores and will continue to work with him to support his future growth plans.

“We are always looking to welcome new franchisees who are keen to develop the asset of a multi-unit portfolio of franchised Papa John’s to run as clusters of stores, and we can help develop a long-term strategic vision for developing a successful partnership with us.  We also work with committed venues looking to add a new a revenue stream by offering a top-quality, branded hot food offering to their existing customers.  We have flexible format options to suit different business models from holiday parks to pubs to sports stadiums and beyond.”


Papa John’s is now one of the most recognised pizza delivery brands in the world.  For those interested in running a Papa John’s franchise, incentives are on offer to open this summer 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.
