Regulars At A Steakhouse Left Their Entire Stimulus Check As A Tip To Help Employees
April 18, 2020
A struggling restaurant received a glimpse of hope after a customer tipped the staff their entire stimulus check.
Colonial Steakhouse in Pine Bluff, Ark., has been in business for nearly 50 years. Right now the restaurant is only open 3 days a week for carryout.
"Things have been barely getting by but we are making it though," said Allison Hall, the General Manager at Colonial Steakhouse.
Hall said regulars at the business picked up a to-go order and left the staff a huge tip.
"She was just sobbing and saying it was their whole stimulus," said Dana Gateley, owner of Colonial Steakhouse.
The $1,200 tip was enough for every employee, even the ones not working, to get $100.
Hall said it couldn't have come at a better time.
Since restaurants can only do curbside pickup, Colonial Steakhouse had to cut down its staff from 12 to four people.
"We've been open for a very long time, nearly 50 years so we're stubborn and we aren't giving up. We are not going to give up," said Hall.
