What is the 5% Wellness Charge?
We believe hospitality begins with a healthy team and a stable, equitable work environment. To ensure both, a 5% surcharge is added to all dine-in checks that supports free mental health resources for our teams and their families, access to health insurance, paid sick leave, and increased operating costs. It is not a gratuity. Our goal is to be transparent while maintaining the value and standards our guests have come to know and love. We appreciate your support and kindness. If you would prefer, we will remove the charge upon request. We appreciate your continued support by dining in our restaurants. To learn more specifics about this charge, please see A Message to Our Guests.
