Papa John's Announces November Comparable Sales Results

LOUISVILLE, Ky.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 29, 2005--Papa John's International, Inc. (NASDAQ: PZZA) today announced that domestic system-wide comparable sales for the four weeks ended November 20, 2005 increased 8.7% (composed of a 12.0% increase at company-owned restaurants and a 7.8% increase at franchise restaurants). The temporary closure of restaurants on both coasts of Florida as a result of Hurricane Wilma was estimated to negatively impact November results for both company-owned and franchised restaurants by nearly 1%. Substantially all such temporarily closed units are now reopened.

Total system-wide international sales for November increased 14.4%, on a constant U.S. dollar basis, over the comparable periods last year.

At November 20, 2005, there were 2,903 Papa John's restaurants (503 company-owned and 2,400 franchised) located in 49 states and 22 countries. Papa John's also franchises 110 Perfect Pizza restaurants in the United Kingdom. For more information about the company, visit Papa John's at http://www.papajohns.com
