Well, if the racists don't buy it, who will?  Certainly not anyone who likes good pizza.  Better play to your base, Johnny.  It's all you got left.

If he isn't getting ROI on ad buys with the NFL then stop spending the money.

The number of make-goods is through the roof, but if you're paying for ads during NFL games a pizza add during the news isn't any good.

I guess we've moved beyond slaughtering animals outrage...

Seriously, if you're in business, why do anything that could potentially cost you half your business?

You just don't get it, do you? This is how I know you've never run a business.

BLAH PEOPLE ARE KNEELING AND DISRESPECTING OUR FLAG, PEOPLE! If the patriotic pizza makers don't stand up to them, THEY WIN!

Another rich person in big business that hasn't realized that the US cash cow is dead. All during this last 10 years during the recession I have learned to do without because I didn't have a choice. I don't intend to change.

But the LLC you work for probably gets a big tax cut soon so you'll get a big pay bump and the unicorns will dance on the rainbows again.  So you buy lots of horrid pizza from Johnny.

Amateurs shouldn't make "pizza" either.

That's not true.  It's just that their pizza has gotten worse and worse over the last 20 years.  It used to be a treat now it is just bad.  I think that is more why the profits are down than anything else.

I assume Papa John's pizzas consist of 50% air because I'm like a buck thirty and can inhale a whole large pie with toppings from that place in one sitting. Normal NY pizza is just as thin and I'm full after three plain slices.

"People get upset and the outrage lasts for a week," marketing professor Lakshman Krishnamurthi told The Washington Post "These kinds of things blow over."

I'm never, ever going to forgive this guy for saying that.
 
2017-11-04 09:36:40 PM  
Bad product and worse politics is a lousy business plan. I'd put Papa John's #2 right behind Sears/Kmart in that category.

OTOH, Domino's with their pretty decent pizza by national chain standards & non existent politics will get my business 99 times out of 100 over John.
 
2017-11-04 09:42:28 PM  
It's  not the politics, per se, it's the whiny sense of entitlement John throws about that pisses me off. I can't  believe our nation has literal  billionaires going to the media and crying out as if we the consumers owe them shiat.

Cable and cell phone companies prove you are wrong.

Families commonly spend $400/month or more for TV/internet/phones.

Is that a local chain? Because the name actually rings a bell.

And where's the nearest one to the I-90 traffic jam I usually hit while I'm trying to get through town, even if it's on a Sunday at two in the farking morning?

Little Caesar's pizza is certainly not going to win any awards, but at five bucks for a large pizza, it's pretty hard to find much wrong with it.

Hah. I started boycotting them when he ordered his franchisees to not share profits with employees after a record breaking year, threatening to yank their franchises if they did.

The guy is a monumental asshole and so is anyone who enables him. If people kneeling in submission during the national anthem ruins his business then I'm only sad that I didn't figure out this magic spell to drive him out of business years ago.
