There is a trend that’s slowly gaining popularity at restaurants across the country. It’s a “no-tipping” policy. That means no more math at your meal!
A new restaurant called Magnet, located on Grand River Avenue near West Warren Avenue, is opening this week.
“If it’s busy they make money, if it’s not they don’t,” said Co-owner and Chef Brad Greenhill.
That instability is one of the reasons he wants to do away with a tipping system for the waitstaff at his new restaurant.
For diners, that means not trying to figure out what’s 15% or 20% of your bill and no service charge. For servers, it means you’re getting paid the same, regardless of the number of tables you wait on.
“It’s less about the reward and you’ll get more rewards through us as a company,” Chef Brad said.
Waiters and waitresses will be able to make $38,000 to $50,000 a year, with health benefits and paid vacation.
“It’s unheard of in (the) restaurant world but that’s expected at almost any other job you have,” Chef Brad said.
Something else unheard of, Magnet will offer every employee at least $15 an hour. However, they need everyone on board to make this a successful system.
