    Godfather’s pizza doesn’t cut it


    Is Godfather’s Pizza any good?

    That’s the saucy question POLITICO asked a panel of political and culinary experts to chew over now that the company’s former CEO, Herman Cain, is rising in political polls.

    Joining us for the great taste test were: Republican strategist Doug Heye (who writes about restaurants for Capitol File magazine); Democratic commentator Karen Finney; and D.C. foodie Nycci Nellis, who runs the website TheListAreYouOnIt.com.

    In the blind competition (panelists didn’t know which pizzas they were eating and commenting about until after the contest was over), each participant sampled plain cheese slices from Pizza Hut, zpizza, Ledo Pizza, Papa John’s and, of course, Godfather’s Pizza (the closest one to Washington, for interested parties, can be found two hours away, deep in the heart of Virginia).


    Unfortunately for Cain, his former business clearly is not churning out quality pies — the panel unanimously voted Godfather’s Pizza the worst slice of the five.


    And their comments were enough to leave a bitter taste in the GOP hopeful’s mouth.


    “It’s the most unappetizing,” said Nellis after just one bite. “The cheese is really sour! The crust is like a sponge.”


    “That is so bad,” said Finney.


    “The crust is trying to be thin crust and thick crust, it can’t make up what it is,” said Heye. “Not good.”


    Cain took over the struggling pizza chain in 1986 and remained there until 1995 and touts his leadership of the company on the campaign trail. His website reads, “Energized by overcoming the many obstacles of his job at Burger King, Herman took on the biggest challenge of his career. He accepted the call to become the president and CEO of Godfather’s Pizza,” a company that was teetering on the edge of bankruptcy. “In just 14 months, Herman returned Godfather’s to profitability and led his management team to a buyout of the company.”

    it's not in politics. I put it in general. It's not a reflection on Herman Cain. He left godfathers pizza 14 years ago. Don't get your panties in a bunch.

    “In just 14 months, Herman returned Godfather’s to profitability and led his management team to a buyout of the company.”

    That's the most important thing to take away from this article.

    Hermain Cain must be one heck of a salesman if he can pass off that shit his company made as pizza.

    Is it? He didn't increase market share..he used cheaper ingredients, according to the article.

    Is that the way to build a prosperous company?
