National Waitstaff Day
Waitstaff makes dining experiences as comfortable and relaxing as possible. They take your order, bring you your food and drinks, and accommodate your needs as much as possible. When you dine in at a restaurant or bar, the waitstaff allows you to kick back and relax. Celebrate waitstaff on National Waitstaff Day!
National Waitstaff Day is an annual holiday celebrated on May 21. The purpose of this day is to recognize and honor waitstaff who are dedicated to caring for customers. Show your appreciation for waitstaff by visiting your favorite restaurant or bar and giving a generous tip or compliment.
The history of waitstaff dates back to as far as 100 A.D. During this time, innkeepers and their families would cook and serve meals to guests. The waitstaff would give the guests their food and accommodate their needs. By 1787, the restaurant scene was revolutionized and fine dining experiences were growing in popularity. Part of the fine dining experience is attentive and careful waitstaff, who tend to guest’s needs and offer a luxury experience. The restaurant industry grew even more in the 1800s, with tourism and travel becoming more and more common. With the increase in restaurants came the increases in the waitstaff. We saw chain restaurants open up in the 1900s and by 2019 dining out has grown even more trendy.
We love waitstaff because they help us relax, they know what’s best on the menu, and they care about customers.
