Description of franchise system

PAPA JOHN’S is committed to coming through on their brand’s pledge of "Better Ingredients. Better Pizza !" From the very first day, founder John Schnatter knew that the best way to create better pizzas was to use fresh dough and superior ingredients, and he never moved from this promise of the highest quality. His plan worked, and customers have loved his delicious pizza ever since.

Papa John's has become the world's third largest pizza franchisor. For 6 consecutive years, people have voted Papa John's #1 in customer service between all national QSR franchises in the prominent American Customer Satisfaction Index.

John founded the first Papa John's location in 1984, and since that time Papa John's has experienced tremendous growth and success! At present, Papa John's is the acknowledged pizza category leader with over 3,500 company-owned and franchised restaurants in 29 countries and all 50 US states. Now, more than a quarter of a century later, there is still one thing that has stayed the same – Papa John's is still completely devoted to their company pledge of "Better Ingredients. Better Pizza."

Franchise concept

Papa John's Franchise Development Team will give you the help you need to start your business successfully and quickly. The company’s real estate experts work alongside all new franchisees to review site criteria and market trade regions. Once you have approved a location for your business, Papa John's construction managers and equipment coordinators will guide you through the restaurant design, building plans, and equipment ordering.

Prior to opening your first Papa John's restaurant, you must have an accepted Principal Manager to handle daily operations if you are not planning on taking this role yourself. The Principal Manager must attend the company’s Management Training Program , which will teach him/her the Papa John's operations and business methods through a combination of hands-on and classroom instruction.

Training lasts around 6 weeks, but may be extended if necessary. Papa John's gives new franchisees both preliminary training and continual support, while continuing to serve as a single solution for every one of your restaurant and business needs.

Franchise partner profile

Prospective franchisees should have one partner who qualifies as the Principal Manager and at least one partner with solid business management experience. For people that want to develop a single location, you may ask to be both Principal Operator and owner.

The Principal Manager must have previous management experience comparative to the amount of locations that you want to develop and ought to be able to attain a minimum of 5% equity in the franchise within the first year of hiring.
