Papa John's to scale back franchisee programs
Aug. 5, 2009
Papa John's is planning to scale back on some of its franchisee relief programs instituted over the past few months, according to a story in the Wall Street Journal. The company has been deferring or waiving royalty payments and cutting fees for online ordering as well as contributing more money toward national advertising campaigns.
The initiatives, which helped keep some stores from closing, cost the company $2.2 million in the second quarter, up from $75,000 last year.
