Papa John's Sales Plunge Following Racist Slur Controversy

posted by NewsRadio 840 WHAS - 

Louisville-based Papa John's sales are plunging following the racist slur controversy surrounding the company's founder John Schnatter.

The pizza chain has seen a 16-percent drop in sales, amounting to a loss of about $68 million over a three month span.  

That three month span was when the racist slur used during a training call was making the most headlines.  

Executives say they expect overall sales for the year to be six to nine-percent lower than last year's nearly $2 billion.
