Papa John vs. Papa John's ... What Now?

Papa John vs. Papa John's ... What Now?by 👨‍💻 Simon Baxendale

Of all of the bizarre stories to emerge in just the past few months, one of the most intriguing pieces not directly related to world politics or data misuse has been the ongoing feud between ‘Papa’ John Schnatter and his own firm – Papa John’s, the pizza empire – following his removal from the company as CEO. Schnatter’s public comments and recent boardroom behaviour have resulted in a rather public fall from grace that has, according to Schnatter’s latest attempts to curry favour with employees at the brand, caused something of a rift between the man behind the name and the remaining board of directors.

Schnatter’s removal from the firm came as it emerged he had chosen to use a racial slur during a conference call which took place in May this year – the public leak of the call led to the firm’s board of directors ousting Schnatter outright as the face and CEO of the brand, while Papa John had previously resigned as chairman of the board in July. However, things aren’t quite settled just yet. The brand appears to be carrying on the founder’s name – despite the negative publicity – and at the same time, it appears Schnatter is taking matters into his own hands when it comes to facing off against the remaining directors.

Launching his own website, SavePapaJohns.com, Schnatter is aiming to appeal directly to employees of the brand and firm in an attempt to put his own story across beyond the confines of the board of directors. The original Papa claims outright via his website that his own company wants to ‘silence’ him, and he goes on to host a number of documents and statements seeking to offer his side of the whole saga. Many people took to Twitter in droves to discuss the drama – with some feeling that this latest twist in the tale isn’t a particularly worthwhile idea.

However, Schnatter appears to have done it in response to actions taken against him by the board, which include the removal of his likeness from all marketing materials – though his name remains on the branding. It’s not clear quite where the Papa John’s saga will come to an end – but if one thing’s for certain, it’s that the ex-CEO will not be going down without a very public fight. Schnatter continues to reach out to employees – but how will they respond?
