Leading pizza franchise, Papa John’s, has announced franchisee Umar Malik has delivered on his promise to open a second Newport store following strong customer demand. Umar, who now runs ten franchised Papa John’s across South Wales, has created 30 new full and part-time jobs at the new outlet based on Chepstow Road, Newport.

“We now have the whole city covered!” confirms Umar. “Our original Cardiff Road Papa John’s, which looks after the East side of Newport, was quick to taste success and so a second outlet was needed to deliver to residents living West of the river Usk.

“Having two Papa John’s close together has made training the new staff straight forward,” continues Umar. “They have been able to gain hands-on experience in the other store prior to opening. This ensures the focus is on quality and great customer service as a priority from day one.”

The Papa John’s concepts of: BETTER INGREDIENTS. BETTER PIZZA. continues to prove popular and there are now more than 350 Papa John’s in the UK and over 5,000 stores in more than 40 international markets.

Umar first discovered his ‘passion for pizza’ while completing an MBA at Carlisle. He worked as a delivery driver for two rival firms as a student and used to dream about owning his own pizza outlet. He says: “Then I found Papa John’s! I funded my first Papa John’s in Swansea through savings plus a business loan from HSBC. The rest is history.

“As I’ve grown my business over the past few years, the Papa John’s team have been particularly supportive,” confirms Umar. “The company has a franchisee incentive scheme designed to help franchisees opening up new stores which offers a few key ingredients including: some free equipment, reduction in royalty fees and assistance with marketing. It means the focus can be on operations in those first few critical months of opening. As the company continues to grow and serve-up a top-quality offering there will be many more opportunities to satisfy customer demand through opening more stores.”
