NY's new $15 minimum wage for fast food workers will impact more than 100 brands doing business in the state. One caveat: They must operate in at least 30 locations nationwide.

The brand has 16 locations in New York and more than 400 nationwide. "There's not much more wiggle room [to increase prices without losing customers]," she said. "I'm going to have to cut crew."
