Skip to comments.Domino's: Obamacare Requires 34 Million Pizza Nutrition Signs
Posted on 11/30/2012 10:10:09 AM PST by Nachum
New Obamacare regulations will force pizza chains like Domino's to post up to 34 million nutrition signs in its stores -- one for every pizza combination the company makes.
The rules require fast food and grocery stores that have more than 20 stores to require labels for each product they produce.
Jenny Fouracre-Petko, the legislative director for Dominos, said mandated signs will cost Dominos nearly $5,000 per store. Even worse, the cost will get passed down to the consumer, many of whom will never see the signs since 10 percent of pizza customers never enter a Dominos store because they use Dominos exclusively as a delivery service.
"It's not like a Big Mac. Pizza is customizable, there are options to factor in," Fouracre-Petko said. "There are 34 million pizza combinations. We've done the math."
Erik Lieberman, counsel for the Food Marketing Institute, said grocery stores will have to do the same.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I'm going to try and just laugh at the chaos for the next 4 years. I really have no other option. This is (so they tell me) what the people wanted.
hey, but obamacare and his taxes will only hurt the filthy rich!!!..
Ah, clarification: it’s not 34m signs throughout the franchise, it’s 34m signs _per_store_.
Don’t you have to install windmills too?
Has as much to do with healthcare.
34 million per store. Friggin hilarious.
And you wonder why intelligent store owners tell Obama voters to go to hell?
“Did you really think we want those laws observed?” said Dr. Ferris. “We want them to be broken. You’d better get it straight that it’s not a bunch of boy scouts you’re up against... We’re after power and we mean it... There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted and you create a nation of law-breakers and then you cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system, Mr. Reardon, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be
much easier to deal with.” (”Atlas Shrugged”, 1957)
Ah, clarification: its not 34m signs throughout the franchise, its 34m signs _per_store_.
I think one must take a sanity test for any government official job because obviously either most are hopelessly insane or they have nothing to do except to make up regulations. But, people did get their obamaphones.
An enterprising entrepreneur would take advantage of this.
Post a placard of the stupid nutrition information for each pizza with a single type .... the basic pizza is bread and sauce.
Then charge whatever for each topping and list nutrition information for each topping, singly. Charge a dollar - whatever. If the patron wants the nutrition information for each additional topping to the standard pizza, charge them a $1.00 to look up on the computer what that is.
Blame the extra expense for those fart-sniffers who’d buy the damned pizza anyway, but want to be a horse’s ass, on Obama and his SAB wife.
I don't have to re-read it again now. I just look out my window.
Or talk to pretty much anybody.
This is Michelle's handiwork.
Sign #1: Due to Obamacare, we now only offer 8 pizzas. If you have any comments or complaints, please call your Congressman and President Obama.
And a sign for each pizza.

Love that quote. I’m stealing it.
They’re just stuck in some quaint old capitalist mentality. The solution is really quite simple: donations to Obama’s third term re-election campaign or to the DNC will buy them an exemption.
$25.00 pizzas coming up.
Aren’t you glad that Nancy passed it so we can find out what is in it?
I'm afraid competition in the Dreaded Private Sector has already driven the price of that service to zero. And the customer doesn't even have to visit the store.
So the idiot Republicans are going along with a bill to mitigate this sort of stuff?
That's stupid, just get out of the way and let all the anal retentive scum King Barry has appointed enforce every jot and tilde of it. The people voted for this piece of chit and his "free health care, this is a big f**kin' deal" package, or at the very least sat at home instead of trying to help get rid of him, so the people have spoken. They wanted this so let them bend over and grab their ankles without any KY jelly.
Let the people who voted for King Barry deal with the consequences of their own actions for a change. When they're buying insulin in an alley and sharing dirty needles because BarryCare has ruled that it's wasteful to keep people on insulin maybe they'll wake up.
Anything already in the law should go into effect and anything new that costs money or avoids the automatic cuts should be declared Dead on Arrival. Senators should filibuster everything that comes up for at least three weeks to ensure everyone has time to read the read the bill and avoid having the democrat fascists pass a pile of blank pages like Obamacare again. After a filibuster, any amendment accepted should trigger another three weeks of filibuster to allow everyone to study the impact of the amendment and how much it really modifies the original bill. The only way any democrat should be able to pass a bill is if in exchange two existing laws are repealed.
Any Republican asked a question about anything should ignore the question and talk about either the debt or the number of infants murdered by abortion. Just ignore the fascist bastards in the media. They wouldn't be asking a Republican a question unless they had already planned out how they were going to spin the answer, so don't answer. Dwell on the debt and abortion or just laugh at them and walk away.
Better yet, just one pizza, a red pizza, just crust and tomato sauce...
If you add $6.66 they can add some cheese in the shape of a hammer and scicle.
What if we created a new sector in the economy called “biological mechanics” and do everything free market but keep it seprate from all existing healthcare crap by definition?
I read "Atlas Shrugged" in the 1970s -- found it overrated. Rand exaggerated her villains to the point that they were not believable.
I read "Atlas Shrugged" again two years ago -- found it overrated. Rand's imagination fell so far short of the real thing that I surprised she watered down her story so much.
Both times I found the 800 page monologue in the middle to be deathly dull.
Will this be the same law for frozen in store pizza like “Red Baron” etc?
Only 1 sign per store: Cheese Pizza only, provide your own toppings at home.
or just print them out on the cheap office printer, duh.
Unfortunately it probably requires the info to be posted before order and I’m sure having a computerized kiosk wouldn’t be sufficient.
doesn’t prevent govt or other hcare companies suing them for trying to skirt aroud the law by not labelling the devices as medical devices.
How many calories and poly-saturated transfats are there in a double order (Extra Large!) of Unicorn Farts...?
Just like swearing the fine for not buying insurance wasn’t a tax, the government would assume and be granted the right to call whatever you do “health care” if they think it impacts their pet program. That’s how the taxes on “junk food” will be introduced, how taxes on internal combustion engines will be introduced, and how they’ll “discourage” firearms ownership by putting a “health care” surcharge on anyone who owns a firearm.
When you’re dealing with people who will argue what the meaning of is is, you’re not going to be able to avoid their Federal extortion schemes by trying to redefine your work as something else.
Take note America, this is what you elected - twice. Enjoy!
that’s the problem with the book, she could have done more with less, and so could the movie. you can get the fundamental ideas across in a shorter amount of time. often the best ways to get things said, to get an idea into someone’s mind, are done in one or two sentences, that are very focused and concise, and nails it in a way they don’t forget and exactly get the point made.
cute obama resistance symbol.
What? No Pizza Councilors to advise me to get the Vegan pizza?
Get some sticker stock and print 'em out.
Guarantee they'll look good on your vehicle or briefcase etc, tho 'cute' wasn't really the design objective.
IMHO...the best way to deal wit this mess....is to comply in excruciating detail with every jot and tittle in the law and regulation. And to complain -loudly and long-to your Congresscritter when the bureaucrats are not following the rules with just as excruciating attention to detail.
There are FAR MORE of us than them.
We like to get our pizzas with, among other toppings: both black olives and mushrooms on one third, only black olives on one third, and only mushrooms on the other third. I hope they have the correct nutrition info sign for this, because we might resort to just having lettuce salads instead of pizza if we can’t be sure of the calories and nutritional content. (/s)
Your post ^^^^, shorter: Brevity is the soul of wit. (Hamlet)
Ah, clarification: its not 34m signs throughout the franchise, its 34m signs _per_store_.
Seems VERY LOW to me ,, you have 20 to the 20th at a minimum and since you can get “double this” or “triple that” and you have at least 2 sizes ??? I’m not doing the math ,, but I’d probably set up a customer accessible computer to calculate the exact nutrition of each clients order or prospective order and to automatically print a label for each box...
Actually, I'm not even sure where those oval sticker things came from .. maybe a European thing originally ?
