Papa John’s is known for their incredible pizza that tastes not only amazing but also provides the chance to cook it in your own home. This company has been one of the most popular over the years because of how well they cook. The man behind the company however made a bad move not too long ago about some things he once said. The blaming, judgement, and the things once slurred broke down the company in a way that made them lose their NFL partnership and advertising.
According to cnbc.com, the company’s CEO had Steve Ritchie jumping in to save the day, and it is honestly beyond incredible how far the company has come and gone to bring it to where it is today. Steve Ritchie decided he could step in and find a way to help fix the problem.
He decided to create an inspiring and well thought-out letter to explain why he knows that the things once said were offensive but not from him at all or the views of the company. He explained that as the leader of this company, he is genuinely sorry for what was said and done. He further talked about how racism and any other insensitive language will never be tolerated or allowed by this company in any way, shape, or form.
The interesting part about the apology was that it was placed on the website, and Ritchie knew personally that he needed to make a few tweaks to make sure the people and not just the general viewers would know how much they wanted to apologize. They also came to a realization that the company is made up of more than 120,000 people who help make the dream of this business a reality, and so this is why they are going to make a few changes. They will be bringing in experts in the field to come in and look in to how they do business and what they do regarding who their employees are. They will find a way to make it as inclusive and open as possible making sure that everyone is respected and treated fairly.
