I never went to Denny’s or Applebees to begin with, but used to order Papa John’s on occasion. But not since their CEO made his idiotic statements after the election.
I’m now boycotting Papa John’s. I’ve long boycotted Domino’s due to their political actions and I hate Pizza Hut.
Another reason to buy local pizzas!
Local pizzas are better anyway. We have several local, wood-fired pizza options. At least one, uses only locally grown ingredients.
I should always been buying all our pizzas from them to begin with…
If only they delivered…..
Well, we all must make some sacrifices….
Though it has many faults, one great aspect of the free market – the actual free market and not what we have on Wall Street – is that customers have choices. Since the Obama re-election victory in November, a few CEOs and business executives couldn’t accept that they lost, and chose instead to bash President Obama and Obamacare.
It was especially strange to hear one CEO, Papa John’s’ John Schnatter, complain about the supposedly high costs of Obamacare forcing him to limit his workers’ hours, while he somehow found the money to build a moat around his mansion and a personal golf course. He’s also the same CEO who is facing a $250 million class action lawsuit for sending text messages to customers.
Then there was the local Denny’s franchiseewho came up with the bright idea to tack on a 5% surcharge to every check to supposedly pay for Obamacare.
Or Applebee’s NY franchisee who claimed Obamacare may force him to institute a hiring freeze.
via Papa John’s, Denny’s, Applebees brands hurt by Obamacare criticism.
