Should I tip when I am ordering take out food and I pick it up?
Is a tip required if I am picking up the food and not having it delivered and not eating in the restaurant?
My understanding is tips are shared between wait staff and the kitchen, so will the kitchen lose out as they did work and the wait staff didn't?
Having never worked in the food industry, I do not know how tips are divided among restaurant staff; however, when I order out I always leave a tip. The tip is not the usual 15% or 18% standard but enough to say that I appreciate the job they did cooking my food, even if they did not have to serve and wait on me.
I usually leave $1 to $2 when I order take out and pick up since I am friendly with staff. I think it would depend how often you go and how you were treated.
