Papa John's founder John Schnatter has engaged financial advisors to explore the sale of all or part of his 31% stake in the company, per a regulatory filing. His position has a current market value of around $500 million.

Why it matters: Papa John's is the world's third-largest pizza delivery chain, and pizza remains the world's best food. (Disclaimer: correlation ≠ causation).
