How many different pizza combinations can you order at Domino’s? The answer might shock you: 34 million, as calculated by the company as it began the process of providing calorie information to comply with the menu-labeling component of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the Minority Report reports.
The Federal Office of Management and Budget (OMB) said the menu-labeling rule ranks third as the most costly regulation because each pizza retailer would shell out $4,700 just to post the calorie information. “This regulation has nothing to do with advancing consumer health and everything to do with financially punishing small businesses, not something a country trying to get its economy moving again needs,” the Minority Report wrote.
Take Action: Urge your representative to co-sponsor the Common Sense Nutrition Disclosure Act of 2012—a thoughtful approach to providing the necessary flexibility and understanding of convenience store foodservice operations—and protect your business against burdensome and costly menu-labeling regulations.
