Papa John’s has announced its 2011 Development Incentive Program, appealing to potential franchisees willing to grow with the company.
Qualifying restaurants opening in the United States in 2011 in the best-of-class program can receive:
- No franchise fee ($25,000 value);
- Two Middleby-Marshall ovens, which may be purchased by the franchisee for $50 after operating for two years;
- A royalty waiver for up to 12 months; and
- A $3,000 food credit with PJ Food Service, which operates Papa John's fresh dough and food distribution quality control centers, for each restaurant that opens at least 30 days prior to the scheduled opening date.
These incentives are available for new unit development agreements signed by qualifying franchisees through Oct. 31, 2011. Openings must be in 2011.
The incentives are subject to rules and eligibility requirements at the time of signing a development agreement. Full details are available upon completion and review of a franchise application, available online.
"Papa John's continues to be a strong and growing brand, with lots of runway remaining to grow both in the U.S. and throughout the world," said Jude Thompson, Papa John's president and co-CEO. "With the continued uncertainty of the economic recovery as we head into 2011, we are proud to offer this program to help franchisees bring our ‘Better Ingredients, Better Pizza' to an increasing number of consumers throughout the U.S."
