How to Show Appreciation to Your Favorite Food Joints

We all have one or two. Those places we visit again and again because we just can’t get enough of their food! While our patronage is the most important thing, the employees and operators of these places deserve to know and feel just how much we appreciate them. Here are some ways to thank your favorite food joints for a job well done.

Tip Them

Tipping isn’t just for servers at sit-down restaurants. Even fast-food joints and food trucks generally have a place for tips. What’s merely a few bucks to you is a meaningful, much appreciated gesture for the people who work so hard to serve up delicious food. Plus, tips often make up a large portion of a worker’s income. When you enjoy a meal, don’t keep your gratitude to yourself. Tell them and show them with a well-earned tip!

Buy Their Merch

Restaurant or food truck merchandise is a great way to kill two birds with one stone. Not only do you add to their revenue, but you can become a walking advertisement for your favorite food joints. Friends, family, and even passersby will likely notice your promotional shirt or hat and might want to find out what it’s all about. Whatever these establishments sell, whether it’s shirts, hats, cups, or mugs, buying their merchandise—and wearing or using it—is another fantastic way to show your appreciation.

Write a Review

Writing a review is another way to show your appreciation. This one might take a little extra time and effort, but it’s worth it if doing so helps your favorite food joints stay in business. Word of mouth is a powerful thing, for good or bad. You have probably heard the saying, “If you like what we serve, please tell your friends. If you don’t, please tell us!” Really, it’s about common courtesy. We should spread the news when we find a place we love. If we are less than satisfied, it’s always best to talk directly to management and give them a chance to improve before going public with it.

We all lead busy lives, and it can be far too easy to forget to thank the people who make our lives better. However, showing gratitude always seems to pay itself forward, making the world a little bit better each day. It’s worth a bit of time or money to show support for the places you love.
