Sources of revenue
Papa John’s (PZZA) classifies its operations into the following four main segments:
- Domestic Company-Owned Restaurants
- Domestic Commissaries and Other
- International Operations
- Domestic Franchising
In 1Q16, PZZA’s domestic company-owned restaurants generated nearly 48% of Papa John’s revenue, while domestic commissaries and others generated 39.4%.
Analysts have marginally raised their revenue estimates for next four quarters for PZZA. One month earlier, analysts had forecasted that the company’s revenue for next four quarters would be ~$1.716 billion. Now, they have raised the estimated revenue by 0.3% to $1.721 billion.
The increase in expected same-store sales growth estimates could be the reason that analysts raised their revenue estimates. The new estimated revenue represents a growth of 5.3% from the corresponding quarters of the previous year.
Revised same-store sales growth estimates
The steps adopted by Papa John’s to provide clean and high-quality pizzas and to improve the digital experience of its customers in restaurants could have prompted analysts to raise their same-store sales growth for next four quarters. They have raised their forecasts for 2Q16, 3Q16, 4Q16, and 1Q17 to 2.3%, 3.8%, 4.1%, and 5.3%, respectively, from earlier estimates of 2.2%, 3.5%, 3.9%, and 5.3%.
