Papa Johns has been a favorite pizza restaurant for many families within the U.S. Yet, this franchise of restaurants is not confined to America only because it can be found in at least 44 more countries across the globe. People come to these restaurants to buy pizza for the entire family, friends, special occasions and other popularly celebrated events. So, this restaurant is well known for many different things including the color of the signs that graces the front of their buildings.
Today, with the CEO, Steve Ritchie, the company is still on a roll but also looking to make sure it stays on the cutting edge in the industry. Steve Ritchie is not only making sure the company has high standards wherever they are located but also ensuring that the workers are providing their very best to customers that they service. According to Ritchie, the only way to make sure that the management and the staff is doing a superior job in this area is to keep tabs on what is going on personally. With his management style, as per Bloomberg, he has had an opportunity to visit restaurants in this chain in several different states. Therefore, instead of getting information based off of second hand knowledge and sources, he is traveling from one area of the country to another to talk personally to the teams that run these operations. For instance, as recent as August 2018, he has had an opportunity to talk to Papa Johns teams in key cities like Dallas, Chicago, and Atlanta.
When talking to the staff in these areas, one of Steve Ritchie Papa John’s primary concerns for this operation is to make sure the business as a whole is in line with their mission and objectives, which is People Are Priority Always (PAPA). With this in mind, it looks like his main focus is to spread this message throughout any area that he visits so that it will spill out to their employee’s families, the surrounding communities and any charities that the company is presently supporting. Overall, it looks like he has a passion that he wants to share where ever the tour takes him.
