As a result of increases in the living wage triggered by new State and local ordinances, we are adding a 4.9% surcharge in our restaurants in Los Angeles County and Orange County. We are adding a 6.9% surcharge in our restaurants in San Diego County.
This surcharge helps to offset our increased labor costs and the trickle-down costs associated with increased costs from product and service vendors.
Rather than raising our food an beverage prices every time the living wage increases, we are adding the surcharge to guests checks. Our goal is to be able to pass more savings on to you, the customer.
Thank you for your understanding.
