This is my first ranker, but I think all the info is right.  I love papa johns pizza, so I thought I would check out how the company was doing.  
I guess the answer is fine, but not RM great.  But here is the data (numbers are in thousands):


                                                                                 (Please read all three of these competitor comments.)
