Why We Have a 3% Surcharge on Your Bill at Southern Social
At Southern Social, we believe in delivering an exceptional dining experience while also prioritizing the well-being of our dedicated team members. To achieve this, we have implemented a 3% surcharge on your guest checks, and we'd like to share why:
1. Equitable Wages for Our Back of House Employees: This surcharge plays a vital role in ensuring fair and equitable compensation for our hardworking back of house staff, including cooks, kitchen assistants, and dishwashers. By distributing a portion of this surcharge among our kitchen team, we can maintain a motivated and talented staff that consistently prepares delicious Southern cuisine for you.
2. Employee Benefits and Support: We are committed to the holistic well-being of our employees. The funds generated from the surcharge contribute to providing essential benefits, such as counseling and mental health services. We believe that a healthy and happy team translates into a better dining experience for you.
3. Assistance for Employees in Hardship: Life can present unexpected challenges, and we want to be there for our team members when they need it most. The surcharge helps us offer financial assistance to employees facing hardship, ensuring they have a support system during difficult times.
Your support through this surcharge enables us to create a more equitable and supportive work environment, ultimately elevating your dining experience at Southern Social. We greatly appreciate your understanding and continued patronage.
Thank you for dining with us and being a part of the Southern Social family.
