John Schnatter, founder of Papa John’s pizza chain, told a British interviewer yesterday that customers shouldn’t eat more than a couple of slices of pizza if they are concerned about their health.
He was responding to a question from presenter Adam Shaw about whether he was concerned about the impact of the British government’s anti-obesity drive on pizza sales.
“No. Pizza’s actually healthy for you if you don’t eat too much of it,” Schnatter replied, adding, “You can’t eat five or six slices but if you eat one or two slices it’s very nutritious.”
Not exactly breaking health news but very interesting coming from the founder of Papa John’s. Schnatter is over in the United Kingdom trying to get more small business owners to open a Papa John’s franchise.
