MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Starting Friday, a number of Minneapolis restaurants will include an extra fee with your meal to fund health care.
Barbette, the Bryant Lake Bowl and the Bird are just a few of Ann Bartman’s restaurants. She’s adding a 3 percent service charge to customer’s checks to offset the rising cost of healthcare for her employees.
It comes to 60 cents for every $20 spent.
Health and dental benefits have been part of Bartman’s business for many years.
