A year ago, the world’s third biggest and most popular pizza delivery company known as Papa John’s promoted Steve Ritchie as the Chief Executive Officer of the company. He has been very loyal to the company and has worked for more than two decades now. Ritchie started as a customer service representative for only 6 dollars per hour. Years later, he became a franchise owner and an operator of Papa John’s and started to serve the company under his own leadership in operations until he eventually got promoted to becoming the Chief Operating Officer back in 2014. Steve Ritchie became part of the succession plan of Papa John’s in 2015 where he was named as the President. He spent most of his career and half of his life working for Papa John’s and everyone saw how hardworking and dedicated he was with his work.
The entire management of Papa John’s is very proud of Steve Ritchie for excelling at each job that he has ever held at the company. From being a delivery driver, hourly customer service representative, store general manager, franchisee, director of operations, and President. They are confident that the company is in good hands and are looking forward to seeing the results of how he will handle the 120,000 corporate and franchise employees of Papa John’s.
