WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Hurricane Grill & Wings is committed to exploring viable and effective ways to deal with the changing economic climate, including the implementation of The Affordable Care Act. We have always been and will continue to be 100 percent dedicated to our employees and customers and will work tirelessly to find solutions that are in their best interests.
Hurricane Grill & Wings supports President Obama and the revision of healthcare in this country. The only question is what the restaurant industry as a whole will do to cover the expenses. Hurricane Grill & Wings will be implementing the 28 hour rule in all corporately owned and operated restaurants starting in Q1 of 2013. The five percent surcharge mentioned in various online outlets is pure speculation and only a potential option should the law be re-written to include full-time equivalents. The surcharge is not to be implemented or considered at this time.
The restaurant franchise will continue to view the pros and cons of implementing reactive initiatives and will present them, as appropriate, to its team members and franchise partners.
