Who doesn’t love pizza? It’s an American tradition, and with the freshest ingredients, Papa John’s is the place to go for a better pizza. Founder and CEO John Schnatter has worked in the pizza industry since he was a teenager. After graduating college, he learned that his father’s tavern was about to be shut down, so John sold his Camaro, bought pizza-making equipment and began delivering pizzas out of a room that was originally a broom closet. After just one year, John had made enough money to open his own restaurant; and the first Papa John’s was launched in Jeffersonville, Indiana in 1985. Thanks to John’s commitment to using the highest-quality ingredients and excellent customer service, the brand soon became a best-selling favorite in the industry. Today, the Papa John’s chain operates over 4,600 locations in 34 countries and is consistently voted number one in customer satisfaction polls.
