Papa Johns Pizza is the third largest carryout and delivery pizza restaurant in the United States and is situated in Louisville, Kentucky. The founder of Papa Johns, John Schnatter, began his pizza career as a high school student. He realized that he could not find a really decent and traditional pizza among à large number of pizza restaurants. That is why he decided to provide food of the best quality by himself and started working for his father, who was co-owner of the bar "Mick's Lounge," in Jeffersonville. Finally, he sold his car to buy out the other owner's share in the bar, and started serving pizza to customers. Business started picking up succesfully, and soon Mick's Lounge restaurant converted entirely into the first Papa John's restaurant.
