Papa John’s Pizza is a major pizza chain. They have been put in the spotlight after a female delivery driver in Georgia risked her job and brought a handgun with her to make her deliveries…a decision that saved her life when she was attacked by two armed gunman this week. Read about this story below
It turns out Papa John’s has a policy forbidding weapons, and this driver is now afraid she’ll lose her job. We are calling on Papa John’s specifically, but all pizza delivery companies as well, to reverse their selfish (they don’t want to get sued if a driver shoots a robber) and dangerous policies prohibiting drivers from carrying protection. They value their own bottom line more than the lives of their employees.
It’s time to put the spotlight on these companies and make an example of Papa John’s. We request that you contact Papa John’s by telephone and email and demand that 1) they not terminate their Georgia driver for protecting herself and 2) reverse their policy of making helpless victims of their drivers.
Anything less will result in Papa John’s being fired by gun owners. Remind them that there are endless alternatives to Papa John’s out there, and they will not be missed when we switch.
We called them today. They will tell you they “haven’t released a statement on this yet” and can’t comment on it. That’s okay, just light up their phones, be smart and polite, but firm.
They did say that the decision to prohibit firearms is left to the individual franchise owners, which means the targeting local shops could be more difficult.
Below is a copy of the employee handbook from one franchise location. See page 10, #28.
