Back when we had a farm in Michigan a new company got started. Papa John's. I don't know if it started in Michigan. I always thought it did. And some time after Papa John's became really successful an anonymous donor said they'd pay for local kids to go to college in Michigan. Now, I may have some of that wrong. I'll do some research later. But for the purpose of what I want to write about, the details of that whole deal, I'm going to set aside.
I remember that a rumor was going around that it was the owner of Papa John's that did this because the college students that bought all of his pizza's were the reason why he became so successful. Again, cool if this is so. But I don't know if it is. It was just an impression, something that people heard about and many accepted as common knowledge.
Papa John's, like many pizza places do a lot of great business because a lot of students buy pizza. So whether he was the one who offered scholarships to Kalamazoo kids or not, I can't tell ya. But when I read an article about how he was upset he was going to have to pay a few cents an hour for his employees so they would have health care I got to wondering. So I started checking out YouTube and found this video. And I thought it was interesting and wanted to pass it on.
