Amanda Cohen’s Dirt Candy, a trendy vegetarian restaurant, which recently moved to a bigger location in East Manhattan, has been tip-free for nine months now. The lauded business, which offers vegetarian cuisines and a light-hearted atmosphere, decided to eliminate tipping when they opened their new location in February 2015.
Dirt Candy relies on the expertise of Leebro POS for its POS solution. The restaurant utilizes an iPad Air at the bar and three iPad Minis used as mobile devices for order-at-the table and pay-at-the-table. Leebro POS built a custom guest receipt layout to describe the idea of no tipping and added an automatic administrative fee with the following short explanation to all checks: “We pay our employees a fair wage, and they share in Dirt Candy’s profits, so please NO TIPPING. A 20% administrative fee is added to every bill to offset our costs. It is not a tip and none of it is distributed to employees who serve you.”
