The Save Papa John’s website offers a statement from the founder and news coverage in his favor.
Papa John’s founder John Schnatter has created his own website. Save Papa Johns offers a brief statement from the founder, his biography, a list of developments in his ongoing feud with the brand and links to news coverage positioned in his favor.
“I am Papa John. I built Papa John's from the ground up and remain its largest shareholder… The board wants to silence me. So this is my website, and my way to talk to you," the website reads.
A spokesperson for the brand stated that the brand is, “not, nor should we be, dependent on one person. Papa John's is 120,000 corporate and franchisee team members around the world. Stakeholders, including customers, franchisees, employees, and investors, have expressed strong support for the actions we have taken to separate our brand from Mr. Schnatter. No matter what John does, he will not be able to distract from the inappropriate comments he made."
