Restaurants Run on Tips

by Aleksandra Todorova 1 year ago Filed Under: Data

Americans love to eat out. But how do they feel about tipping? The tipping culture in the United States has always been somewhat confusing to foreigners, especially Europeans who are used to paying the bill and perhaps leaving a few cents extra to round it up.

But here, wait staff at restaurants (along with those working in the kitchen, etc.) earn minimum wages – if not less than that – and it is generally accepted that they must rely on tips to make a living.

To gauge America’s opinions on tipping at restaurants, Visually partnered with SurveyMonkey Audience to gather feedback from over 500 U.S. adults. See what they told us in the infographic below. (General information on respondents is available here).
