Papa John’s Blames The Media For Obamacare Blunder – Requests They Take Stories Down

Papa John’s Blames The Media For Obamacare Blunder – Requests They Take Stories Down
2013/01/27
By Lorraine Devon Wilke


When to leave well-enough alone might just elude Papa John’s and its notorious CEO, John Schnatter.

It seems that even after the major public relations fail of loudly protesting the Obamacare ruling and making a scene about cutting hours and raising prices to accommodate it, the big guy who’s happy enough to give away 2 million free pizzas to Super Bowl fans despite all this financial constraint, has now sicced his “people” on journalists who covered the story.

Oh, yes. If you can’t put the toothpaste back in the tube, you can at least try to get the tube shoved under the rug. Or, that appears to be the thinking of Mr. Schnatter and his new PR dogs, a firm called Sitrick. According to a breaking story in the Stabley Times, Sitrick has come after them to take down a story they reported on a CNN investigative report on Papa John’s claim that he’d have to raise the price of pizza because of Obamacare. Did you get that? Papa John’s PR stooges asked Stabley Times to take down their story on CNN. Wow, huh?

snip//

In reference to why Papa John’s would come after a publication like ours for simply relaying something that CNN had reported about the pizza chain, the PR firm claims that it “somehow missed the CNN story about which you wrote.” This despite the fact that CNN first aired the clip in August of last year, and has since become the most often cited proof that Schnatter’s claims of increased costs were dishonest…

In the interest of fairness, Papa John’s representative offered this as its reasoning for why our coverage of the matter should be unpublished, which we’ll share here: “What {Schnatter} said, in response to an investor call, was the company estimated that Obamacare would result in an increased cost to the company of approximately 11 cents to 14 cents per pizza, ‘but our business model and unit economics are about as ideal as you can get for a food company to absorb Obamacare, ergo, we have a high ticket average with extremely high frequency of order counts, millions of pizzas per year.’” The pizza chain appears to be attempting to split hairs as to whether Schnatter claimed he would actually raise prices as a result of ObamaCare, or whether he would simply see his own costs rise and absorb the cost. But the research done by CNN makes clear that ObamaCare will not cause Papa John’s to see a cost increase of any kind, which means that in either case Schnatter’s claim is a false one…


snip//


WHAT IS HE THINKING?

Personally, if I were a shareholder or on the board of directors of Papa John’s I’d be talking about a coup. Since I’m not, what I will do is – you got it – write another story about the sheer stupidity, myopic thinking, and even slightly mob-like tactic of pressuring journalists to take down coverage. I’m wondering, what will they do to journalists who DON’T take down their content? Clearly Stabley Times isn’t. We here at Addicting Info certainly won’t…in fact, see…we’re writing more!

But I wonder if we’ll find a horse’s head in the parking lot any time soon.

42. Absolutely

and you often can buy a big one for 4 or 5 bucks...THey are good without doing anything but I add some extra mozzarella and veggies.

It is way enough for two people...often I just have a quarter of the pizza. My boyfriend will eat one quarter and sometime half of the other 1/4 slice.

Pizza from these franchises are already frozen and don't taste as good..

My favorite brand is Delissio

If I want to have a take out pizza I go to an Italian family restaurant. It is real. but my frozen pizza is great

Di Giorno is better than Papa John's. So is CA Pizza Kitchen to some extent.

Papa John's, Dominos and Chuckie Cheese qualify as the worst chain pizzas out there.

BTW most of the affordable care act aka Obamacare does not go into effect

After his idiotic statements about Obamacare I made sure they knew I was not ordering another pizzas from an a-hole like that. I bet a lot of other people did the same, now they are trying to backtrack. Screw'em.

Sad thing is I am in an Italian neighborhood and my pizza loving friends from out of state have made a point about how great local Pizza is, I am spoiled to good pizza. It is what is available in your area and what you are used to eating. I have a friend here who swears Domino's is the best, to me it is red paint on cardboard.

Sorry that idiots make you sacrifice what you like. I can never buy anything Nestle and they keep buying companies I like.

59. Mr. Schnatter Is A Greedy, Disgusting Un-American Pig

Everyone should boy-cott his pizza, for two reasons: 1. He's a 1%er who doesn't believe in the American way, which is to pay your fair share and don't try to scheme to get out of it or bitch about it. 2. His pizza is THE WORST pizza around, bar none, period.

61. Papa John lost me after Twitt dropped by and left us with this:

Mitt Romney at a private fundraiser last month at the house of Papa John's founder John Schnatter:

What a welcome, what a place this is. My goodness. Who would have imagined pizza could build this, you know that? This is really something. Don’t you love this country? What a home this is, what grounds these are, the pool, the golf course. You know if a Democrat were here he’d look around and say no one should live like this, you know? Republicans come here and say everyone should live like this, all right. This is a real tribute to America, to entrepreneurship.

64. Poor baby!

I wasn't sure if the story made a difference to Papa John's bottom line but I am happy to hear that they are worried.

70. PJ shut down in our town after being open about a year

 

Nasty pizza. Little Caesars is owned by progressives and has a much better product.

75. Typical conservaloon.

Also, I feel that Little Caesar's and California Pizza Kitchen are superior to a notable degree when it comes to quality, compared to Pizza Hut an the like.

81. I only buy from mom and pop pizza places now

The pizza at these chains like the completely inedible Dominos, Lil Caesar's, or Pooper John is not only more expensive than the local sole owner's pizza but far inferior to it, at least in my neighborhood.
