Papa Johns franchisee reveals expansion plans after ninth site

Leading pizza franchise Papa Johns, has announced franchisee Ahmed Eldessouki has successfully opened his ninth outlet, this time in Brighton.

Eldessouki, who opened his first Papa Johns in 2003 after moving to the UK from Egypt, revealed further plans to open eleven more outlets along the south coast and in south London over the next five years.

Speaking of the news he said: “Over the years, with funding from the bank, support from Papa John’s, plus the company’s special franchisee incentive offers, I have been able to grow a successful business, employing more than 100 people across all my stores,” said Eldessouki.

Brighton is the latest exciting addition. It’s a thriving town of more than a quarter of a million population including a large student community, so really does offer a hot opportunity.”
