Steve Ritchie believes Papa John’s stands a chance if he can build the company from the ground up. While he does not plan to change the things people love most about the pizza chain, he’s going to make positive changes everyone can get behind so they can make the most out of the business. He wants to show people there are more chances for positive experiences with Papa John’s and he’s going to do what it takes to make these happen. He also knows there are ways he can restructure the company so the customers are the most important things. He is focused on the business and knows a lot about how to run a business like it. He also knows there are things he can do that will continue helping people see the best parts of the way the industry works.
Steve Ritchie knows a lot about starting from the bottom and working his way up. He started out as just an hourly employee at Papa John’s. He worked very hard as an hourly employee. Steve Ritchie remained dedicated and continued pushing to make himself the best he could be. The hard work he put in paid off when he was promoted. He was promoted again and again. He continued working through the ranks of the company over a period of 21 years. From the bottom, he built his way to the top. He is now the CEO of Papa John’s. He’s one of the only people in the world to start out as an hourly employee and work his way to the top as the CEO.
Steve Ritchie continues making good decisions. His experience in all the different roles at the company gave him the edge he needed to show people he could make things better for them at every level of the company. He wants people to see what he can do and how he can make the most out of the way he runs the business. If he stands a chance at doing things the right way, he’ll be able to continue pushing to make positive opportunities for everyone. See Steve’s open letter on Facebook.
