There’s a definite trend happening in the restaurant industry these days. No tipping. And it knows no borders.
Toronto’s newest restaurant, the Indian Street Food Co. is asking its customers not to leave a tip when paying for their meals.
The owner, Hemant Bhagwani says he pays his serving staff a fair wage and adds a 12 percent administrative charge to every bill. He will also allocate 10 percent of restaurant revenue toward higher wages for all his staff, including the kitchen.
A note inside every menu at the Indian Street Food Co. reads:
“We pay our employees our employees a fair wage, and they share in Indian Street Food Co. profits, so no tipping please.”
