The founder of Papa John’s Pizza, John Schnatter will no longer be the CEO by next month reports CNBC. Schnatter has been publicly criticizing the NFL leadership over national anthem protests by football players says the report and now he is simply going to be the chairman of the popular pizza chain.
Lil Jon Willing To Take The Position
It has been clarified that as Schnatter steps down, the next CEO of Papa John’s will be Steve Ritchie starting the 1st of January. Schnatter had blamed that the sales were going down due to the outcry around the NFL players kneeling during the national anthem. Papa John’s Pizza is a sponsor and advertiser of the team and Schnatter also claimed that the customers did not like this association.

While the soon-to-be CEO Ritchie would not comment on whether or Schnatter’s comments were the reason for his stepping down, there is someone who also wants to be the CEO of Papa John’s Pizza and it is none other than Lil Jon. It is obvious that he is kidding but hey, it’s not stopping people from fantasizing about it.
Can we make this happen even for a day?
