Papa Johns lost its spokesman last year– but it’s about to get a new one.
The former NBA player will become the new public face for the company ….and also serve on its back end.
Shaq is investing in nine Papa John’s stores in Atlanta and joining the company’s Board of Directors.
The pizza chain’s founder and tv commercial pitch man, John Schnatter resigned in July.
He was under pressure to leave the company after it was revealed he used the n-word during a conference call.
Papa John’s sales have declined for five straight quarters since then.
