LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Papa John's reported that domestic systemwide comparable-store sales for the four weeks ended May 22, 2005 rose 3.7 percent (composed of a 4.7 percent increase at company-owned stores and a 3.3 percent increase at franchise stores).
According to a news release, total systemwide international sales for the four weeks ended May 22, 2005 increased 15.8 percent, on a constant U.S. dollar basis, over the comparable period last year.
On May 23 (the first day of period 6), Papa John's initiated a $1 delivery fee at its 460 company-owned units to help offset cost increases in fuel, insurance, labor and food. It said it will not speculate on the impact the fee might have on comps.
