As we inch closer to January 2015, many large food service operators are moving fast to figure out how the Affordable Care Act will impact business.

Just last week, during the Fast Casual Executive Summit in Denver Firehouse Subs CEO Don Fox came out and said that the Affordable Care Act is the single most impactful government action in his time with the restaurant industry.

“In this, a business of 1,000 details, it’s tough enough doing the basics. But now there are so many external factors – headwinds – and they can make or break our industry or your brand,” he said.

Getting a head start on those external forces is key to “turning lemons into lemonade,” he said. Firehouse Subs started by implementing ACA in January.

“That’s been great for us. We turned it into a positive and now we’re ahead of where we need to be,” Fox added.
