Schnatter, who founded Papa John's out of the back of his dad's tavern in 1984, was the youngest person ever inducted into Junior Achievement's U.S. Business Hall of Fame in 2007, was named one of the Ten Outstanding Young Americans in 2000 by the National Jaycees Organization, and the 1998 National Ernst & Young Retail/Consumer Entrepreneur of The Year.
