Join the Team Day should validate that PJ’s is the franchise you want to own and confirm that we are mutually a good fit for one another. If the day results in a positive experience for both parties and you are approved as our newest franchisee, we will sign the franchise agreement and officially welcome you to the PJ’s Family.
