Here's some great news for anyone considering owning a pizza franchise. Papa John's has made it easier to purchase one of their franchises by renewing their franchisee incentives program.
According to the people at National Restaurant News:
The package of incentives is available to franchisees who sign agreements for new units between now and Nov. 30, 2013, and who open new locations by Dec. 29, 2013. Rewards include waiving the $25,000 franchise fee, a royalty waiver for up to the first 18 months, a $3,000 credit with the company’s PJ Food Service purchasing co-op, and $50,000 worth of equipment, including two pizza ovens that can be purchased for $50 after three years.
In this economy, incentives for franchisees are a great bonus and I'm sure there are many franchisees out there who will genuinely appreciate this move.
“Papa John’s continues to be a strong and growing brand with a lot of runway remaining to grow both in the U.S. and throughout the world. We are proud to offer this industry-leading development program to help new and existing franchisees deliver our ‘Better Ingredients, Better Pizza’ to an increasing number of consumers throughout the U.S," the franchise's new CDO said in a statement.
