Inside Papa John’s new international prototype

The pizza chain, eager to add locations outside the U.S., has rolled out a new prototype designed to be more flexible and tailored to specific needs.

Reyna returns to the pizza chain. He had been VP of human resources before he left for another company.

Despite sluggish sales for his category, the Papa John’s CEO believes the economy, and the company’s menu strategy, will work in its favor.

The pizza chain’s same-store sales fell less than 1% in North America as traveling consumers order less pizza. The company also lamented record costs that hit its profits.

Marketing Bites: The burger chain proves that you don’t need a big name to have a big impact; Taco Bell brings back a hit marketing effort; Papa John’s gets spooky.

The pizza chain is coming out with a line of Papa Bowls that feature pizza toppings without the crust.

The company’s sales increased last quarter despite weakening demand. But its food costs rose 18% and corporate store margins took a big hit.

The Bottom Line: Pizza chains are struggling to find enough drivers. They are increasingly turning to delivery services, which are not having the same problem.

The pizza chain, whose sales continue to outperform its rivals, is raising its development outlook as operators speed up unit growth.
