As a high school student working at a local pizza pub in Jeffersonville, Ind., Papa John’s founder, John Schnatter, felt there was something missing from national pizza chains — a superior-quality traditional pizza delivered right to the customer’s door. His dream was to one day open a pizza restaurant that would fill that void.
After getting a degree in business from Ball State University, he knocked down the broom closet of his father’s tavern, purchased $1,600 worth of used restaurant equipment and began delivering pizzas our of the back of the bar.
“Making a quality pizza using better ingredients has been the foundation of Papa John’s for more than 25 years. You have my commitment that Papa John’s will not stray from the foundation of quality & superiority upon which the company was built. We will always strive to be your ‘Better’ Pizza Company.” – John H. Schnatter
