• Papa John's opening dine-in restaurants in Shanghai

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — John Schnatter, founder of Papa John's International, helped celebrate the opening of the 15th Papa John's restaurant in Shanghai yesterday. According to a news release, the most unique feature of the restaurant is its dine-in component, something not seen in the chain's U.S. system.

"This is my first trip to China, and I have to tell you, I'm amazed," said Schnatter. "The restaurant we opened yesterday in Shanghai is the nicest restaurant in the Papa John's system. Of course it is a dine-in restaurant. They do business differently here, which means, we do business differently here."

Delivering food to someone's home isn't an automatic proposition, Schnatter said. It's the product of building relationships with customers at the dine-in level first, he said.

Currently there are 20 Papa John's in China; the company wants 250 units there in five years.
