Aug 7 - Papa John's Pizza To Raise Prices Because Of Obamacare, CEO John Schnatter Says
 

 
After President Obama's health care law takes full effect, the slogan for national pizza chain Papa John's may need an update. Instead of, “Better ingredients. Better Pizza,” may we suggest, “Better health care. Pricier pizza."

Papa John's CEO John Schnatter says that Obamacare will result in a $0.11 to $0.14 price increase per pizza, or $0.15 to $0.20 cents per order, Pizza Marketplace, a trade publication, reports. (Hat tip: @dkberman via Twitter.)

Under Obamacare, the company, which is the third-largest pizza takeout and delivery chain in the United States, will have to offer health care coverage to more of its 16,500 total employees or pay a penalty to the government.

The National Restaurant a.ssociation pointed out following the health care law's Supreme Court approval that it may adversely affect restaurants’ ability to maintain already slim profit margins because it requires companies of more than 50 employees to provide affordable health insurance.

One Papa John's franchise owner in Texas, Judy Nichols, says the law could interfere with her ability to open more restaurants.

“I have two options, I can stop offering coverage and pay the $2,000 fine, or I could keep my number of staff under 50 so the mandate doesn't apply,” she told Legal Newsline. Nichols added that the law may cost her between $20,000 to $30,000 extra in taxes. “Obamacare is making me think about cutting jobs instead," she said.

But with strong sales last quarter and more than 1,500 new retail locations planned in the near future, Schnatter doesn't seem all that bothered -- perhaps because he intends to pass those health care costs on to customers.

“We're not supportive of Obamacare, like most businesses in our industry,” Schnatter was quoted as saying in Politico. “But our business model and unit economics are about as ideal as you can get for a food company to absorb Obamacare."

McDonald’s also expects Obamacare to cost each of its 14,000 franchises between $10,000 and $30,000 annually, according to Businessweek. But, like Schnatter, the company remains optimistic it is well placed to handle the extra costs.

Representatives from other restaurant chains may be less hopeful, however, including Burger King, Quiznos and Dunkin’ Donuts, all which have expressed concern the law may hurt business, according to the Wall Street Journal.

.20 cents per pizza order is worth it. Long live health care for all! Do they realize they're complaining about giving their employees benefits? $30,000 a year for McDonald's is not a big deal. The avg store makes 2 Million a year.

The bigger picture is Papa John's is just the last stop in the supply chain.
Add 14 cents more for the company that produces the flour. 14 cents for
the tomato supplier. Etc. That's just one industry. Prices on almost all goods
are going to go up. The only way for Obama to survive the backlash is to
push hard for a raise in the federal minimum wage. I'm not talking about a
few cents, he needs to push for at least a 5 dollar raise for it to get back
in-line with inflation.

Yeah then they're gonna say that'll cost more people jobs. Then unemployment goes up. Nothing he does will have 100% support or great consequences. I'd rather pay more for my pizza and tomatoes(sp?) knowing everyone in the country has healthcare.

Papa John's pizza (and Romney) sucks but, regardless, NoTitleSince73 it's like you take everything negative expressed about Obama and his policies personally. Like he your savior or something...seriously, he's just a policitian. The same goes for all you other overzealous Obamaniacs.

He's complaining, but he paid someone $250K as a finders fee to locate his old Camaro and he gave away pizza to Camaro owners for free.



It's his money and he can do what he wants with it, but that's the cost of doing business. Go ahead and let your underpaid workforce die off in that case. lol
