Papa John’s international development agreements generally require a franchisee to build and operate a minimum number of restaurants in a particular geographic area within a period of three to seven years. This requires prospective franchisees to have a substantial net worth and cash availability position. We generally require a minimum US$2,000,000 net worth under our multi-unit development agreement with additional minimum requirements for liquid/cash assets.
These are minimum requirements and do not represent the total potential costs to open and operate one or more Papa John’s units.
"There's never been a better time to be a Papa John's franchisee. We're the number one brand in our category and we have never had better incentives than right now."
Our franchisees describe John’s active involvement in the business and his undying commitment for quality.
“He’s actively involved in the business, he’s the one that grew it, he’s the one that built it, gives a 100% to it…”
