THE BRONX - Bronx business owners are worried the upcoming size ban on soda will hurt their sales.

Stan Petti, the owner of a pizzeria, says the ban will hurt his business' bottom line.

Employees at Tino's Deli say the ban will force them to charge customers more for smaller sizes of soda.

The ban, which takes effect March 12, prevents restaurants from selling soda bottles larger than 16 ounces.
