Restaurateur
    (November 23, 1961- )
    Born in Jeffersonville, Indiana
    Founder/CEO/Spokesman of Papa John’s Pizza
    Papa John’s tagline is 'Better ingredients. Better pizza. Papa John’s'
    Resigned from Papa John's after use of the 'n-word' during a conference call became public (July 12, 2018)
    He pitches his food in his company's commercials as if he's Dave Thomas.
    He twitches his head multiple times when he delivers his company’s tagline in commercials.
    His company was sued by Pizza Hut, saying Papa John's claims of 'better ingredients' amounted to false advertising.
    Several top Papa John's executives resigned partially due to his perfectionist managerial style.
    After a Papa John's employee put a racial slur on Minhee Cho's receipt, Stephen Colbert quipped, 'calling her 'lady chinky eyes' is no more culturally offensive than calling Papa John's 'Italian food.' '
    He hired a motivational coach to overcome his fear of speaking in public.
    He built his company from selling pizza out of his father's tavern to becoming the third-largest pizza chain in the United States (as of 2012).
    He sold his beloved 1971 Chevy Camaro to start his pizza business.
    Years later, after he became successful, he tracked down and bought back that Camaro.
    He contributed to many charities in the Louisville, Kentucky area.
    He made a half-court shot at a college basketball game. As a result, all the fans at the game received free pizza.
    He also gave away millions of free pizzas when the majority of a customer poll correctly guessed the Super Bowl coin flip result (heads, 2012).
