Papa John's founder throws shade at NFL, Roger Goodell

Papa John's founder is physically out at the pizza chain.

Schnatter came under pressure after a media report that he used a racial slur and graphic descriptions of violence against minorities in a conversation with the company's former media agency, Laundry Service. "I worked on this board for two years", Schnatter told WLKY.

The founder agreement, which dates to 2007, defines on Schnatter's special role with the company, including "attending major corporate events, making visits to domestic and worldwide franchises, participating in monthly quality meetings with management, participating in meetings with investors, and acting as advertising and brand spokesperson".

Papa John's Founder, John Schnatter, has been anything but a good influence on his own brand/company.

John Schnatter was the face of Papa John's.

Papa John's is struggling to revive its business as Domino's Pizza Inc. and a resurgent Pizza Hut eat into its market share.

Schnatter has since stepped down from his role on the University of Louisville Board of Trustees, had his name removed from the school's College of Business: Center of Free Enterprise and the Nachand Fieldhouse in Jeffersonville, Indiana.

Racism and insensitive language - no matter the context - will not be tolerated at any level of our company. The office sublease will end in 90 days, the company said.

Ritchie said he would lead the chain in trying to rebuild trust with the public "from the inside out".

That would start with retaining an independent expert to audit existing systems and polices "related to diversity and inclusion, supplier engagement and Papa John's culture". So, yeah they tried to extort us and we held firm. To follow-up, we will initiate two-way conversations to invite ongoing feedback from employees and franchisees to ensure that their voices are heard. After blaming declining sales on the NFL's inability to resolve their national anthem protest issue, the NFL dropped him as their official pizza. As the leader of Papa John's, I'm sorry. And I don't want to do business with Roger Goodell.
