Franchise News International (blog):
Luigi Forgione who opened his Papa Johnâ€™s pizza outlet in Ware, Hertfordshire, in March with his brothers Tony and Libby Forgione, saw takings up in excess of 20% in the first week compared to other Papa Johnâ€™s store opening in the past 12 months.
Luigi Forgione puts his start-up achievement down to: â€œproactive marketing and previous food retail experience. I also run several fish & chip shops and a chicken shop in the area, so I knew how to prepare my staff ready for the busy opening period.
â€œEnthusiasm for the product is also essential when running any successful business,â€ explains Forgione. â€œI believe in the Papa Johnâ€™s concept of only using the highest quality ingredients and 100% fresh dough to create a top quality pizza with a better natural flavour. Combine this with excellent customer service, rapid delivery times and a great brand and I knew the franchise would be a winner from the outset.â€
