Thompson began working for Papa John’s International Inc. in 2006. Before he became the company’s chief operating officer, Thompson held various positions for the company, each one increasing his responsibility.
Thompson was also president of PJ’s Food Service Inc., and he has had leadership roles at other well-known companies such as Coca-Cola and Scott’s Miracle-Gro.
Krispy Kreme Doughnuts’ revenue has been on the rise as of late thanks, in part, to the addition of their beverage menu. According to a recent report, their fiscal fourth quarter profit more than tripled.
