Join us on TikTok, where we Pay it Forward to Waitress/Waiters!
Have a waiter/waitress that deserves that extra tip? Many times, we hear various stories where servers are struggling whether it be providing for their families/themselves or a student paying off their student loans. A tip may be more than giving them a moment of financial peace, but may also bring a spark of hope to continue their jobs.
In addition, we also want the waiter/waitress to know that there may be a reason behind no tipping or a very small tip. Please realize that it may not be within their ability or means to pay for a tip. However, you may wonder why do they go out to eat if they cannot afford to tip? Perhaps we have to keep in mind that they only can afford to go to out to eat once in a very long time and they only saved enough money to cover the menu prices with very little left. After so many dinners consisting of only instant noodle and canned food, they too, want a good meal. Eventually in the future when they are able to pay for a decent meal, they will pay it back and maybe some more like we are doing right now.
Starting today, we are resuming Fermalife’s #TippingForward for in person dining where we will reimburse you for the full amount of the tip (=> 20% of the bill) up to $50 with an Amazon Gift Card! Every month, we will accept up to 5 participants. Record a short video of you writing "#TippingForward" on the receipt, and if you could capture of short video reaction of the waiter or waitress who picked up the tip, you will get an additional $50 Amazon Gift Card!
