pick-up catering--do you tip?

ivyleigh | May 10, 2007 03:48 PM

We're ordering a few platters from a local gourmet store because we're hosting a graduation brunch on Monday morning. But, we're picking it up from the store and serving it ourselves. I'm wondering what the tipping etiquette is in this situation? We're already paying a fee to have the food plated so that it's ready to serve, but if a tip is still required, I'd like to know. If they were coming to our house and serving the food, then a tip would be obvious, but I'm unsure in this situation.

Thanks so much for your help!
