Was this a money move or a way to make amends?
Possibly a little of both.
Retired NBA star Shaquille O’Neal will join the Papa John’s family as a member of the Board of Directors. He will also be an investor in nine franchises in Atlanta and an ambassador for the brand.
The black community wasn’t feeling Papa John after the founder John Schnatter stepped down after admitting that he used the N-word last May. Since then, they’ve been hit with boycotts which caused a sales to decline 5 quarters in a row.
Did Shaq make it “okay” now or we still not eating Papa Johns?
