    With price increases come volume decreases.

    The end result will be much more than that. Everything you buy will cost more, not just a stupid pizza.

    That pizza will not go up much more than that...and if his business drops it wont be because of the 15 cts a pizza...lets be realistic and honest please

    American if you can actually make the statement you just made you cant know much about anything more than I....if you think 15ct increase on an average 14.00 pizza is alot of money...and could possibly cause any HUGE business failure...then I truly dont know what to say to you that could make you feel more secure than you will always have your neighborhood Papa Johns...which personally I wouldnt buy one of those pieces of garbage if they cost 5 bucks each...When I want pizza I want real pizza not production chain crap.

    Because most of them are part-time expendable labor?

    Re: Papa John's Pizza To Raise Prices Because Of Obamacare, CEO John Schnatter Says

    Im a lucky guy, Ive always had health insurance and ive always been able to buy a better plan if I wasnt happy with the one provided. Millions of people cant do that.
    All my kids enjoyed cadillac health care all their lives, Daddy and mommy could afford it...theres millions of mommys and daddys that JUST CANT and they love their kids as much as we loved ours and as much as you love yours...
    Im not a bleeding heart liberal...I dont act on emotion MOST of the time...but damn people, how can anyone say that 15cts on a pizza to cover 16,500 people is not a bargain...considering all the facts. Number 1 fact is these people are WORKING AMERICANS not bums...not sit on thier arse entitlement sucking skid row types...not criminals, x cons...junkies and scumbags...they are people that get up every day and go to work, productive people..>Successful ? no...Rich ? no...but regular americans...and to whine that 15 cts is going to put the 3rd biggest pizza chain out of business is ASSININE...because the other two that are bigger are going to have to do the same thing and so are all the ones under Papa Johns....ITS A BARGAIN for americans....all of us americans....one trip to the doctor with your kid...100.00 bucks or less....one trip to the ER a 1,000...get your heads out conservatives and be realistic please

    Your giving the delivery pizza business mixed up with something else......

    When people get ill or injured, they call out suddenly, when they call out suddenly, they get fired, then they go get a bottle of liquor and some weed and celebrate being fired under the guise of being "stressed out" from being fired.

    Once they sober up, they then go out and find another pizza joint to work for.

    Interesting the focus out of the article is the next to un-noticable price increase.

    This is what caught my eye.
    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
    With abysmal job growth right now, is that something you really want to hear a business owner saying?

    Yep. That's right. Obamacare has several different ways to mess with the population. Price increases on products. Loss of jobs. Reduction in the quality of the plans offered to avoid the "Cadillac" plan tax (something the company I work for is likely to have to deal with). It's going to be a real wonderful time once people start seeing everything this legislation does.

    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.


    OMG...a 15 to 20 cent increase on a 14.00 pizza to give 16,500 employees a chance at having health care...

    Anyone that doesnt believe thats a value is NUTS...because if they dont have insurance we will pay far more for their trip to the emergency room...

    How many other business will do the same? Looks like the middle class will pick up the tab again.

    The point isn't the pizza place employees plan on spending the rest of their working years making pizzas-

    The point is while the employee is making pizzas they and their family are covered incase of illness/accidents. Not every employee is a single student working their way through school and are on the parent's plan. (another bennie of the Obamacare plan, extended coverage if your child attends school)

    That the very well off CEO complains and waves a price increase around as a tool to prevent his employees from having healthcare insurance is rather disappointing.

    Some people are out of touch. For pennies a pizza little Jane will have healthcare coverage, where is the evil in that?

    CEO Schnatter comes off as a greedy, selfish 'I got mine, to hell with the workers!' kinda prick.

    Maybe he and Mr. Daniels can start a club.

    Companies are in business to MAKE MONEY. We call it PROFIT. They are not in business to be ensure that their employees live a life of sunshine and rainbows. Now there comes a point between those two concepts where the employees are happy and the employer is still making sufficient profit. When someone forces the employer to provide more services to the employee, thus cutting into the profit, that balance is thrown off and must be restored by an increase in the cost of the product or an equal decrease in other benefits for the employee.
