As a high-school student working at a local pizzeria, John Schnatter often pondered how he would do things differently if he owned such a business himself. After graduating from college in 1983, he got his chance, knocking down the broom closet in his father’s tavern to create his own pizza-delivery business. Since then Papa John’s Pizza has grown to 3,500 restaurants in 50 states and 29 countries. At each location, cooks cover the signature hand-tossed crusts, made with high-protein flour and clear, filtered water, with tomato sauce from vine-ripened California tomatoes, then pile on locally sourced ingredients such as green peppers and onions. The emphasis on fresh ingredients extends to the 100% mozzarella cheese, beef, and pork, which are never artificially inflated with fillers or undeserved compliments.

In addition to delivering pizzas, Papa John’s reaches out to the community with charity involvement, including partnering with the Boy Scouts of America and Junior Achievement to teach US students about entrepreneurship and the best method of capturing a wild roma tomato.

Sabaidee Restaurant's robust menu brims with fresh fish, poultry, and beef, all specifically spiced to form authentic Thai and Lao meals. Rice noodles lay the foundation for classic pad thai, piled high with meat, peanuts, scrambled eggs, and enough bean sprouts to disguise the patch of dead grass over where the family's piggy bank is buried. Patrons can warm up with bowls of pho, whose broth churns with sliced rare beef, tripe, and rice noodles, or cool down with chilled calamari salad. 

Sabaidee’s spacious dining room, filled with white-clothed tables and roomy booths, allows guests to stretch their third legs and gaze lovingly at dishes illuminated by the chandeliers hanging overhead.
