Papa John’s Delivers Fresh Look on the Road

Papa John’s loves to be fully loaded!  The leading pizza franchise has branded its UK delivery fleet of 28 trucks for the first time.  The lorries which transport the fresh pizza dough from Papa John’s state-of-the-art factory in Milton Keynes to more than 400 stores across the UK, use an average of 27 routes making two deliveries per week to each store. They are now fully branded so loyal customers can spot Papa John’s on the road!

Phil Gaffer, QFP, franchise sales and business development manager comments:  “Papa John’s continues to expand rapidly in the UK and so it’s now great to see the brand en route to stores across the country.  The fleet ensures all our franchisees get deliveries of fresh dough on time and the trucks look great advertising our top-quality pizza.  Our: “BETTER INGREDIENTS.  BETTER PIZZA.” concept means our pizzas are made with only the finest, freshest ingredients and so regular deliveries make sure our franchised stores are topped up with all the right ingredients on a regular basis!


“Our logistics supplier has focused on optimising delivery schedules using bespoke route planning software which considers the average time certain routes take at certain times of the day.  The vehicles are the latest Euro trucks which can all go into London’s low emission zone and a process of rolling replacement is designed to incorporate the very latest models which have the best emission rates.


“As well as the ingredients to make the fresh pizzas, soft drinks are also included within deliveries.  Beverages tend to be transported from our Hemel Hempstead base on the early week delivery schedule, when there is more room on-board the vehicles compared with later in the week, when fresh dough orders are larger ready for weekend trading.


“Our transport vehicles and optimised delivery schedule are another example of how we are always working hard to improve Papa John’s infrastructure on behalf of our franchisees.  The branding on the trucks looks great, it’s fun, fresh and appealing, and is just one of the many ingredients that go to make Papa John’s the best pizza in town!”
