Florida man leaves whopping $10K tip for serving staff to split amid coronavirus spread

Restaurant employees are feeling the pressure as people stay safe at home to avoid getting the novel coronavirus.

In many cities, restaurants have been forced to partially shut down and offer only take-out, significantly reducing business and income for servers and staff.

But one man, a regular at Skillets restaurant in Naples, wanted to help out with a generous tip of US$10,000.

“He said, ‘I want each person in this restaurant to get $500. The manager distributed it to all the employees,” restaurant owner Ross Edlund told WKRG-TV.

The huge sum was distributed evenly between Edlund’s 20 employees, he told Fox News.

“People come in and they become family. We know where they are from, we know how many kids they have, and we know what’s going on in their lives. They become a part of our team, a part of our restaurant,” Edlund said.
