Papa John's Pizza
Well, for starters, we didn't start our business in a boardroom. We started it in a broom closet. Back in 1984, our Founder, John Schnatter (that's Papa John to you) sold his beloved muscle car to buy pizza-making equipment. Armed with only an oven and a love for making quality pizza, John opened the very first Papa John's in the crowded broom closet of his father's tavern.
