Wendy's, Papa John's merger discussed

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN) -- Wendy and Papa John apparently were talking about a march to the corporate altar.

But recent problems for Papa John's founder John Schnatter apparently kept any more talk of a merger from moving forward.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Schnatter had started discussions with the Dublin-based hamburger chain, but those talks cooled after Schnatter was accused of using a racial slur during a media training session in May.
