1. Having worked in the food services industry, I think this is a great thing for the servers. As someone who eats out, I would personally like to know that all of my costs are built into the price of the food. It makes it easier to plan your meal. Hopefully the service will remain the same or better, that is always a concern when you move from an incentive based biz to a salary based biz.

  2. I never understand the idea of tipping. If you look at restaurants in Europe and Asia, tipping is not a standard practice. Restaurants pay their waiters/waitresses fair wages so tipping is not needed. North America restaurants need to follow.

  3. I think that’s really cool because I imagine there is a high turnover in restaurants and this is a good way to retain happier employees. I’d still probably tip too. But if it was an expensive restaurant it would have to be a very special occasion to go.

  4. I’m a fan of including all costs of business in your pricing pricing. For me this includes everything from restaurant meals (wages aren’t a cost of business?) to airline fuel surcharges (your airplanes don’t need fuel?)
