Things may be looking up for Papa John's as a hedge fund may be interested in the company:

The speculation is that a takeover of Papa John's may be difficult:

up 41% from the panic selling.  It is hard to pull the buy trigger on "falling Knives".

PJs recent year could be a Harvard Business School case study on what happens when a company does everything wrong from a political standpoint.

I think we're pretty much at a point where a company is going to have to be (1) absolutely and unwaveringly apolitical, or (2) take a side and apologetically stick with it.

Craig,

I agree. Unfortunately, the PJ/Schnatter dilemma is likely to cause other business people to make business decisions based on politics and fear.

 This is a pretty rough piece about John. Looks like it gonna cost a lot to get out from under the shadow of John.

If political discussions were not forbidden on the forum, at least for the masses, I'd ask what you meant by "decisions based on politics and fear".  But alas, it is forbidden.

So, with apologies to Franklin D. Roosevelt:

- So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is...PJ's pizza itself...a  tasteless, unseasoned, unjustified terror which paralyzes the taste buds......

Typical article on the continuing saga. The best part was the first commenters take on the situation.
