Papa John’s History
Papa John’s is the 3rd largest pizza chain restaurant in the United States with more than 2,800 locations spread across 49 states in the country, as well as the District of Columbia and 20 global markets. About 570 of the total restaurants in operation are company owned, whereas the rest are run by franchisees. The company also has 115 subsidiary locations in the United Kingdom.
The first Papa John’s restaurant was opened in 1985 by John Schnatter in Jeffersonville, Indiana. Nevertheless, the company’s story started a year earlier in 1984 when Schnatter bought used cooking equipment worth around $1,600, then installed it in his father’s local inn and started making pizza.
John first got the idea of preparing pizza at the age of 15. At the time he was washing dishes at a pizza joint known as Rocky’s in his hometown. When the restaurant had lots of customers, John would occasionally be called away from his normal routine of washing dishes to help with making pizza.
His company would eventually become the Papa John’s brand, a publicly traded international pizza chain that registered around $1.4 billion in profits last year alone. By 1998, the restaurant was operating 9 distribution centers and supporting close to 1,500 units. A 10th store opened in Portland, Oregon during that same year, and the location in Louisville was also expanded from 35,000 to 82,500 square feet. Furthermore, they expanded globally for the first time by opening restaurants in Puerto Rico and Mexico.
Currently, Papa John’s stands as the most successful quality focused pizza company in the world with a relatively simple success formula. Their commitment to quality food can be seen in the rich ingredients they use, ranging from fresh traditional pizza dough to vine-ripened and freshly packed tomato sauce. In a highly competitive sector of the restaurant business, Papa John’s has managed to create its own lucrative niche by offering a versatile menu consisting of bread sticks, pizza, chicken strips, cheese sticks, chicken wings and bottled soft drinks among other unique products. Their trademark motto is “Better Ingredients, Better Pizza”.
