John Schnatter, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, noted: "Before discussing our 2002 outlook, on behalf of the entire Papa John's family, I extend my heartfelt sympathy to those who lost loved ones, friends or colleagues in the September 11th national tragedy. I am proud of the Papa John's family - our franchisees, restaurant operators, corporate team members and supply partners - who have reached out to our fellow Americans by raising money for relief efforts and providing meals to blood donors, volunteers, police and fire officials and other brave rescue workers who have given selflessly in this time of need. Our thoughts and prayers remain with you as our nation unites to overcome this tragedy."
