    I have no idea at all how you fed all that into a professed 11-14cts increase on a pizza order by the third largest pizza chain....you should more angry at the pizza chains that charge you 3.00 to deliver your friggin pie so you can pay their delivery employees and all their costs for them and they can still pocket another 1.50 for free per pie...

Then there could be more cheese on the pizza for the same profit; oh poo, that would be unhealthy. (BTW, salaried Papa John's employees get great medical benefits etc.)
    Healthcare doesn't instantly make you healthier. I am just as healthy now as I would be if I didn't have any healthcare, because I don't require its use.

After all while purchasing and eating Papa John's Pizza is a voluntary act not eating period is not an option.

    Yep. Why discuss the PPACA law's impact on wages/prices, when we can change the subject to pizza delivery costs and look like we are staying "on topic"? We should be "angry" at everything but the costs of PPACA! Yes they can!

    Ive explained fully earlier in this thread why obamacare is a bargain...and Im not going through it it all again....I was in the pizza business for 30 yrs..
    I just say this to you...the IMPACT on your taxs and the increased costs of medical care in this country relative to the MILLIONS of uninsured and illegal immigrants whos healthcare we pay for DAILY is far fold the small added costs of obamacare....but all you conservatives refuse to even acknowledge the incredible price tag were all paying for the uninusureds health care and have been.....you got this day dream in your head that you can make it all obamas fault for passing obamacare....

    It very much is an option. They are poor, and it is free.

    Real poor people (not middle-upper class America's vision of what it is to be poor) will do what they have to do to survive. Ive seen poor folks cut a hole in the floor and drop a 5 gallon bucket down in the hole to use that as their toilet because they had no running water. Bucket gets full? pull it out and go steal another bucket from a work site somewhere....

    It'd be hard to think of another business decision more core to success than pricing.

    There is no such thing as a "maximum profit level". The price level of everything is constantly in flux. Just look at the Stock Market channel to see evidence of this. And every company out there will increase thier prices given even a little excuse. Yet they will try their damndest to avoid lowering their prices. And Obamacare is a pretty damn good excuse for raising their prices.

    Oh you know they are serious when the nanny state gets tossed about.

    Pinkie, you will have to spell it out for me I guess, I don't see the downside in having more workers covered by health insurance. No the silver bullet but not the gloom and doom some predict.

    BTW, this law doesn't help me and mine a lick, self employed we don't qualify for any of this, but I still think it is a good start for reforming healthcare.

    So a little about what my wife and I have observed about Americans and eating. Tack on 25 cents a meal/pizza/bucket o' chicken or box of tacos and you will not affect the total sales a whit. My wife and I have been blessed in this country, we enjoy a comfortable life while off the ranch, going out to eat is common at least once or twice a week, delivery pizza or chicken once a week as well. Seems to me the volume of business done is pretty good, get there after 6 and you join quite a crowd waiting to be seated or an hour wait on delivery, sometimes 90 minutes.

    It is going to take alot to knock America off it's eating out/delivery stride. Hell, we have 8.3% unemployment, the semi-sacred job creators, hallowed be thy name, all a fretting over taxes they imagine are coming and jobs are draining out of this country.

    But try and get seated in the Outback or Applebees at 6 most nights...

    Nanny state or serf state.... guess I'll go with the former- serfs don't build great nations.
