A huge tip from a customer
Like so many small businesses being forced to adapt to social restrictions amidst the novel coronavirus shutdowns, this Arkansas steakhouse has been struggling to make ends meet—but thankfully, one of their regular customers gave them a much-appreciated financial windfall.
Despite the difficulties of remaining open during the COVID-19 shutdowns, the Colonial Steakhouse restaurant in Pine Bluff has managed to stay open by maintaining a team of four employees to offer curbside pickup for three days of the week.
Last week, one of the restaurant’s regular customers decided to leave a hefty tip for their takeout order—and the staffers were stunned by the amount.
The customer tipped the Colonial Steakhouse $1,200—which was the customer’s entire stimulus check issued by the federal government to relieve the financial burden of the pandemic.
