Papa John's founder and ousted chairman thinks the pizza chain has changed its recipe.

"I've had over 40 pizzas in the last 30 days, and it's not the same pizza, it's not the same product," John Schnatter said in an interview with Fox affiliate WDRB in Louisville, Kentucky.

After Schnatter built the company on "better ingredients, better pizza," Papa John's ousted him as chairman in July 2018, leading him to file several lawsuits against the company.

He dismissed his claims as part of a settlement with Papa John's and has been selling off his stake in the chain.

Schnatter's resignation had followed his use of a racially charged word on a conference call in May 2018.

In the interview, Schnatter said former CEO Steve Ritchie, who resigned from Papa John's in August, and the board of directors used the incident to "steal the company.".

Papa John's swung to a profit in its third quarter, reporting a net income of $385,000 and revenue of $403.7 million. »

Worms may not have spines, but they're doing some back-breaking sewer work in more than 4,000 toilets across India.

Since 2015, a creative new type of toilet called the Tiger Toilet has been popping up outside homes and schools around the country.

Still, this kind of game-changing new invention — a toilet that requires no traditional sewer system — is an exciting prospect for Gates. »
