National Waiters and Waitresses Day

National Waiter & Watiress Day

With just under 600,000 restaurants in this country, it can be quite difficult to stand out as a waiter or waitress. For those of you who go above and beyond to provide exceptional service to your patrons, this day serves to honor your hard work and dedication to your craft.

For those of us who are not part of the wait staff, it is important to realize that across the country, about 70% of states pay less than $5.00 per hour to tipped employees. So, with that in mind, it is time to stop thinking of a tip as an “extra bonus for great service,” and start thinking of it as part of that person’s salary. So go ahead and give your server an extra few dollars today to thank them for their hard work, they’ve earned it!

If you’re feeling extra generous, why not purchase your favorite server a new restaurant uniform from ChefUniforms.com?

National Waiters and Waitresses Day

Today is National Waiters and Waitresses Day! If you don’t already know, today is a great day to show your appreciation for your waiters and waitresses, whether you work at a restaurant or are just a customer. If you do work at a restaurant, be a little nicer to your fellow employees today. Help them out if they are in need; make their day a little easier in some way.

If you are a customer at a restaurant today, the best thing you can do (aside from leaving a couple of extra dollars on the table before you leave) is to be nice and understanding toward the wait staff. If your meal comes out a little differently than how you ordered it, don’t yell at the waiter for getting it wrong (it may not have been their fault), simply tell them the issue and ask them nicely to correct it. A little kindness goes a long way in a restaurant environment, and being rude doesn’t solve anything.

So, take this day to appreciate your waiters and waitresses a little more than you normally would. Tip them a little higher today, be a little nicer. And above all, thank them for doing what they do so well with a smile on their face.

If you really want to go all out for your employees (or if you REALLY like your waiter or waitress), get them the gift of a new uniform from www.ChefUniforms.com! We’ve got uniform shirts, aprons, pants, and many more items to fulfill any restaurant uniform needs. Enjoy our low prices and start shopping today!
