CEOs at chains like McDonald's and Waffle House stop fighting a $15 minimum wage — but say it could mean higher menu prices for customers

As more states and countries raise minimum wage, CEOs at Waffle House and McDonald's say chains can handle a federal $15 minimum wage.

"We've had to deal with differences in minimum wages, state by state, as the states have taken the lead in moving forward," Waffle House CEO Walt Ehmer said.

Waffle House, Potbelly's, and Texas Roadhouse are among the chains that will likely increase menu prices if new state and federal minimum wage regulation passes.
