Obamacare’s War on Pizza

A war on pizza? Ok, this is the last straw. Can’t be taking away our pizza.
Check it out:

The FDA will soon finalize its regulations implementing the Obamacare calorie-labeling mandate for chain restaurants with 20 or more locations. FDA’s one-size-fits-all draft rules will create onerous and expensive burdens on these franchised small businesses, fail to take into account current consumer behavior, and unfairly extend the mandate to convenience and grocery stores.

Join us for The Bloggers Briefing tomorrow at noon ET to hear more about the impact from Heritage Research Fellow Daren Bakst and Mary Lynne Carraway, a Domino’s Pizza franchisee in the Washington, D.C., area.

Mary Lynne will explain how these rules will have a disproportionate impact on pizza delivery stores. Pizza chains receive 90 percent of their orders online and over the phone, yet the FDA is requiring them to post in-store menu boards at a cost of as much as $5,000 per year, per store.
