Thanks OP for the post, but I have such a sour taste from this company after all the thing their founder did. I know he is gone, but there are things you cannot get rid of easily.

This may be a bit too off topic for a RFD post but I think this is an interesting and worthwhile conversation to have. While I agree what the CEO said was reprehensible, is it appropriate to pass judgement on an entire company for a single person? It's fine and dandy to take a stance of moral outrage against a person's actions, but I would respectfully suggest that there are many other companies that you and I likely enjoy and support who are more morally corrupt on the whole than Papa John's, even if we don't know it. This could be in terms of how they deceive and manipulate consumers, how they treat their employees, how they farm out work to sweat shops and child labour, how they hide profits in offshore accounts instead of paying taxes that could help people, how they fund questionable organizations, etc. If we could lay bare the sins of every company, then I wonder how many virtuous companies would be left for us to from which to purchase products.

Full disclosure: I've never tried Papa John's pizza, but this event wouldn't stop me from doing so.

That's too bad, because PJ pizza is one of the better chains. I rarely buy any pizza though.
PJ's has half price promos every week. I don't think I would stop buying it because of one guy.

Lots of respect for how you conduct your argument. I agree with you that there are many companies that we enjoy and support that are corrupt at the core, but there is a difference: Papa John's was the face of the company Papa John's; If the company was called something else it might not have had such an impact. For example, nobody can deny the talent of Kevin Spacey, but I am no longer able to sit down and watch any of his movies/shows. It is all in the PR ..... keep an eye on Elon Musk if you want to know how crazy that can get?

Typical whataboutism. Lots of people already don't support companies they find objectionable. They call it ethical consumerism, fwiw.

Can we please have a sticky on PJ's weekly specials and the provinces they work for? Instead of these same discussions on every new thread?

Sorry, this isn't "whataboutism". I'm not trying to discredit anybody's feelings or position on the matter. I would even say I understand where people are coming from and why they are boycotting the company. I think you missed my point, and perhaps that's because I didn't explain it clearly enough for you and made you feel attacked unintentionally, but my point wasn't that people are hypocrites. Quite frankly, we're all hypocrites in one way or another, myself included. I'll admit that I refuse to buy Nestle products because of their business practices, but then I can't stop myself from buying an iPhone and name brand sneakers. I was genuinely curious how many companies have a clean moral slate, and am concerned that not many do. Is there a good site for ethical consumerism that you would recommend with alternatives for good quality products that have a... gosh, what would you call it... a low "immorality" footprint?

I'm more in the camp of hoping people try to do their best to buy ethically. Even if we all choose where are particular stands are, take one?
I loooove Papa Johns, but after all of this crap, I find it hard to enjoy it so I'll find another pizza place that doesn't have such a knob as a CEO.

Also, this isn't, uh, really a deal? Or if it is, you can basically get up to 50% off pizza on the app every day in BC. I don't think I've ever purchased PJs at full price.

Thanks. I'm really not trying to strongly argue anything, just interested in seeing what perspectives other people have. I agree, having the head of a company or even its spokesperson (e.g. Jared from Subway) commit horrible acts has a much bigger impact on their image than, say, a low level employee doing the same. I don't eat at Subway but it was for other reasons before the whole Jared fiasco. But back to your point, I think you are absolutely correct that it comes down to PR image. And it will be interesting to see how things unfold with Elon Musk.

As for Kevin Spacey, I feel the same way. I don't want to support somebody who would behave in such a way. I think there's something to be said for separating the artist from the art, but with movies and TV that's much harder to do because you see and hear the person and can't help but think about what you know.

They also turned into SJWs banning the guy from his own company. Turning food into politics, just lol.

This is a good deal, but I don't find the pizza that good. If you want good food for the same effect, there's a Chick Fil A at the YYC airport. Smiling Face With Sunglasses

You must have lower standards then. No comparison IMO. Dominoes cheaps out on everything now.
