John H. Schnatter (born November 22 or 23, 1961), nicknamed commercially as Papa John, is an American businessman. He founded Papa John's Pizza in 1984.

Schnatter resigned as CEO on January 1, 2018, after comments he made in November 2017 criticizing National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell for not doing anything about national anthem protests by football players. He then resigned as chairman of the board on July 11, 2018, when a scandal broke out over his use of a racial slur.
