Good news for anyone in the restaurant or bar industry. Apparently people have been feeling quite generous since covid started.
This one research study was done in Toronto but I’m sure it’s been the case everywhere lately. It found that people started tipping more as soon as the pandemic hit. Before Covid, the average tip for a takeout order was 16.5%. Then last spring when everything shut down it immediately jumped to 19%. Mostly for takeout orders. During summer 2020 got as high as 22%. I would imagine it’s even higher now.
I have noticed myself tipping more over the past year too. As someone who has waited tables in the past this is great to see. Tip your servers and bartenders this weekend!
