When it comes to tipping, how do you do?
In the second quarter of the year, quick-service restaurants saw an average tip of 16.9% and full service restaurants saw an average of 19.6%.
In person diners dished out an average tip of 19.7%, while those getting delivery or takeout tipped an average of 14.3%.
The most generous state when it comes to tipping, Indiana with an average tip of 21%. West Virginia was second 20.8% with Ohio, Delaware and Kentucky tipping at 20.7%
Which states are the LEAST generous when it comes to tipping? California leads that list, giving an average of 17.5%. Other “least generous” states, Washington, 18.3%, Florida and New York at 18.5%, Hawaii, Texas and Nevada at 18.8%.
I have tried over the last few years, especially after the pandemic to leave at least 25%. Staffing is stuff, workers are working hard and of course, that low wage, before tips.
I seem to find that if you’ve at one time worked a job serving food, you get it. And you tend to leave a little more, and good on you for doing it.
