#58: An Amazing Solution for Restaurant Tip Distribution

November 2, 2022 by David Scott Peters

I grew up in the restaurant industry and some old-school processes were ingrained in me that I have had to unlearn. One of those is tipping. When I was a restaurant employee, I never believed in tip pooling, other than behind the bar. Nowadays, tip pooling with the entire restaurant, other than managers, of course, is becoming more and more popular, for good reason.

In this episode of my podcast, The Restaurant Prosperity Formula, I am talking with Kirk Grogan, the COO of TipHaus, the fastest growing end to end tip platform for the service industry.

TipHaus is the industry leader in automated tip calculations and payment distribution for restaurants. Grogan brings over a decade of restaurant experience starting as a host, working his way up as a server and bartender, and eventually managing high-end contemporary dining locations in Seattle. He, like you, is a real restaurant pro!

Listen in on our conversation as he shares more about TipHaus and how they save restaurants an average of 20 hours and $1,000 per month.

Grogan provides a very thorough argument for automating tip distribution no matter your format. As your restaurant coach, I appreciate the time and money it saves, the reduced conflict and how TipHaus contributes to an improved guest experience. Listen in and then make sure to visit TipHaus for more information and a demo.
