More bad news about Kettleman Bagels being purchased and chewed up by national chain Noah’s Bagels. First, Portlanders lost out on great (that is, authentic) bagels. Turns out the employees of the newly branded Einstein Bros. Bagels lost out, too: They’re no longer allowed to accept tips—even a little change in the jar.
The Einstein Noah Restaurant Group tells WW
: “[W]e want our employees to deliver on our hospitality and guest service commitment each and every time without any expectation of a cash tip from our guests.” Unhappy employees say the policy will cost them about $100 a week.
