Dear John Schnatter,
I read your petulant comment that since it will require a 14 cent increase per pizza to provide healthcare to your employees, you've decided to just reduce full-time employees to 30 hours. Sort of like you're sticking it to everyone that the election didn't go your way.
I am a very very loyal Papa John's customer but I have some news for you.
You're a "ME TOO" product. Pizza, even good pizza, can be found just about anywhere.
I read the article today of your position on the issue. Hey, you have the right to do whatever you like; it's your company. But did you know that Starbucks offers healthcare to all of their employees, even their part-timers? It doesn't seem to hurt their bottom line.
After having read this article today, I found myself craving pizza like nobody's business. So, I decided to log into Domino's and give them a try since it's been so long. I discovered something while there. They have a new crust called called Brooklyn Style. OMG, that is my favorite. They get what makes it so great.
You lost me the first time because of your petulance; but now you've lost me because I just discovered, Dominos has a better pizza.
There's a really really important saying in business, "People like doing business with people they like." I think that's true for companies, too. I don't like you anymore Papa John, you seem petulant and shortsighted; I don't won't to contribute to your profits.
You just lost your first loyal patron.
