Burnout in the Hospitality Industry: The Case of a Restaurant Manager
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) calorie menu labeling regulation will take effect nationwide on December 1, 2016 (Taylor, 2015). As a strategy to reduce the prevalence of obesity in the U.S., the FDA was required by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care act (PPACA) to propose and establish guidelines to implement a national menu-labeling law. On December 1, 2014 the FDA announced the final menu labeling rule effecting all restaurants and similar retail food establishments that are part of a chain with 20 or more locations sharing the same name and offering the same menu (Department of Health and Human Services, November 2014; Department of Health and Human Services, March 2015). With this in mind, this case study looks at the impact of the FDA calorie menu-labeling regulation on restaurant menu development.
