How Papa John’s quickly turned itself around

This week’s episode of the RB podcast “A Deeper Dive” features the chain’s CEO, Rob Lynch, discussing the company’s comeback and how it was helped along by the pandemic.

Papa John’s turned itself around last year. Its challenge in 2021 is to keep that momentum going.

This week’s episode of the Restaurant Business podcast “A Deeper Dive” features Rob Lynch, the CEO of the Louisville, Ky.-based pizza chain.

Lynch, who became CEO in 2019, discusses how the chain was able to generate such strong sales during the pandemic. He talks about the company’s Papadias sandwiches and how that idea came about—and how much they’ve contributed to the chain’s sales. He also talks about the company’s stuffed-crust pizzas, and how innovation will keep the company ahead.
