Lines on credit card receipts for tips have popped up everywhere. It used to be that sit-down service was the only place where a tip applied. Now, that is not so much. Tipping on carryout orders is now a fairly common practice. At least, if you believe how often the tipping lines appear.
So, what is the expectation for tipping on carryout orders?
The Case For Tipping On Carryout Orders
While some would say that restaurants are being greedy looking for tips on carryout orders, many workers would likely disagree.
In many cases, workers are dedicated to the carryout section of a restaurant. There is a local pizza place that we love, but we’ve started doing carryout only. It’s so popular that waits for tables are usually at least 30 minutes, even on the least busy day of the week. So, the solution is to purchase carryout.
