Papa John’s was founded in the USA in 1984 and there are now over 4,800 stores throughout the USA and in more than 36 international markets and territories.
A top quality product is essential when running any successful business! The Papa John’s concept of only using the highest quality ingredients and 100% fresh dough to create a top quality pizza with a better natural flavour has proved popular around the world. Combine this with excellent customer service, rapid delivery times and a great brand and Papa John’s is an exciting place to be right now. Offering pizza takeout and delivery with over 400 stores in Europe, Papa John’s is currently looking for franchisees and long term business partners to develop their expansion in the Baltic region.

Papa John’s is looking for enthusiastic and ambitious individuals who are keen to operate multiple, Papa John’s outlets and who are keen to become part of Papa John’s success story.
Candidates typically have extensive restaurant/retail experience. Pizza business experience is a plus.

To become a successful Papa John’s franchisee you need to be motivated, enthusiastic, hard-working and want to be part of a growing team. Exceptional interpersonal and people skills are essential, as you’ll be dealing with customers as well as leading your team on a daily basis.

You’ll have to be dedicated and passionate enough to adapt to a proven way of working. And you’ll need the ability to roll your sleeves up and be involved in the process, which means everything from making pizza through to managing staff!
