    That's good news for those who like papa john's. But for me, I prefer the local pizza places instead of the chains. The local places can be a hit or miss, but once you find a good place, it becomes a keeper.

    I love Papa John's pizza, but won't eat it anymore. Their CEO, John Schnatter is a big time homophobe. He also tried to reduce employee work hours so he wouldn't have to pay for health coverage. This guy has more money than God, how about maybe taking a cut in pay to balance things out? Greedy prick.

    Agree. I have boycotted their stores since this happened.

    Thanks for the update, fif, but chain pizza just doesn't do it for me. I like searching for the good, unique, local ones, even if they're not always so good. PJ's animosity towards gays, like Dominos and Cracker Barrel's, is reason enough not to go there, even in those small towns where sometimes it's the only choice.

    Of course I went looking for this just to rationalize my own consumption, so this is extremely biased, but for me it's enough to justify a little further research.

    Thanks for mentioning it, though; I was unaware of their history.

    Thank YOU, Phil, for setting the record straight re: Dominoes. Fact is, though, I just don't like their pizza! icon_cool.gif

    Several years ago, after hearing so many rave reviews, decided to get one. Disappointing.

    AFAIK, I have never eaten any of their product.
    They are one of my customers, though not a large account. So, anyhow, I take a small amount of their money.

    Their pizza is horrible. Most of the pizza chains are


    I try to hit up my local, mom and pop pizzeria but their costs are usually a bit higher for the same size pie you would get at a chain. If im in a hurry and low on cash, Ill pick a Dominos handmade pan or those Red Baron frozen pizzas you get at a grocery

    I don't eat fast food pizza.
    Ack.
    Plus, the owner of Papa John's is an enemy of the gay community.

    True, Papa John's is a chain, but it's far and away my favorite of the pizza chains. I don't do it often, but still like it the best.

    We have many boutique pizza joints and new small chains as it is a fad right now. I even represents a couple of them searching for space, but still, it's Papa John's, the once a month or so when I cheat and do pizza. Plus, it's on the way home from the gym.

    And btw, Papa John's, unlike Chickfila, are locally owned franchises so I'm sure they vary a bit in quality (and opinions).

    But when you go to Papa John's, you are giving your money to a big time homophobe, their founder and CEO. I love the taste of their pizza, but I am not willing to give them my money anymore.

    You didn't listen to what I said. You are 'giving' your money to a small and presumably local business owner. True, he/she/it in turn is paying a franchise fee of a few percent to his franchisor. So 95% or so of the money is staying local. That '95 percenter' should be judged on who he/she/it is. In the case of the local Papa John's I like, the franchisee, the '95 percenter' is a big butch buxon burly beefy dyke.
