Automatic Gratuity for Large Parties at Zehnder's Restaurant sign now

Most restaurants, both chains and privately owned establishments, require that gratuity be automatically added to bills for parties of 6 diners or more. At the majority of restaurants, automatic gratuity for large parties is generally around 18\%.

The purpose of automatic gratuity is to ensure that servers receive a fair tip when waiting on large parties. Some diners do not seem to realize that servers depend on their tips to live and often do not leave tips that are in line with the good service they receive. This is often particularly true of large parties, who seem not to understand that the size of the party results in extra work for the server, and should therefore warrant a tip of at least 15\% of the bill, if the service is satisfactory.

This issue is exceptionally problematic for the servers employed at Zehnder's of Frankenmuth. Because of the nature of Zehnder's Restaurant, it is often a gathering place for large families on holidays. As previously mentioned, most chain restaurants add gratuity for large parties, and they do not see nearly the number of large parties as Zehnder's. It therefore seems logical that Zehnder's should also have an automatic gratuity policy for parties of 6 or more diners. It is frustrating when a small party does not leave a fair tip, but it is not usually a significant blow to the server's income; when large parties do not leave a fair tip, however, it is a harsher blow to the server's income and considerably more problematic. The servers of Zehnder's encounter this problem on a regular basis, and therefore automatic gratuity for large dining parties should be a requirement at this establishment, as it is a requirement at most other restaurants.

We, the undersigned, do hereby request that an automatic gratuity charge of 18\% be added to the bills of dining parties of 6 or more at Zehnder's of Frankenmuth. We also request that Zehnder's menus be amended to reflect this change; adding this statement to the menus means that parties of 6 or more, by placing an order, are effectively agreeing to the 18\% automatic gratuity charge, thus protecting Zehnder's from possible legal ramifications. This is a very commonplace policy at restaurants throughout the country, and we, the undersigned, believe that we deserve the same guarantee of fair tips for large parties as servers at other establishments. We appreciate the serious and careful consideration of this request by the owners and management of Zehnder's of Frankenmuth.
