Anti-Obamacare Backlash

Businesses are reportedly getting bad feedback for telling the truth

 

YouGov tracked the public’s perception of three restaurants following anti-Obamacare comments made by company CEOs. Papa John’s, Applebee’s and Denny’s all saw declines among adults who have eaten at casual dining restaurants in the past month. Denny’s score even fell to zero after franchise owner John Metz announced a five percent ‘Obamacare surcharge’ in November. The brand’s score jumped up to a six shortly afterwards “potentially due to CEO John Miller’s apologetic statement a few days later,” according to the YouGov report.

Maybe it’s time for a Chick fil A-like campaign on behalf of Papa John’s, Applebee’s, and Denny’s?
