Papa John’s is winning the Coronavirus lockdown! The pizza chain announced a 5% increase in first quarter of 2020, lining up with the rise of shutdowns and the popularity of delivery.
According to CEO Rob Lynch, Papa Johns is almost fully operational in most markets they are in. The pizza chain also announced plans to hire 20,000 workers during the time most companies are laying off employees.
“Our international and domestic businesses have performed well, as customers and communities rely on us and others in the food delivery industry,” Lynch said in a business update to investors.
