Karma Rewards The #Tipworthy Server of the Year

They fill our drinks and take our orders. They go above and beyond even when it isn’t required. They work the front lines of our restaurants, and they make our day because that’s what they do.

They fill our drinks and take our orders. They go above and beyond even when it isn’t required. They work the front lines of our restaurants, and they make our day because that’s what they do. And now we’re giving them some love. Marcos Sahagun (at left receiving the trophy from RBC’s Mary Kay Hyde), a server and bartender at Romano’s Macaroni Grill in Chula Vista, California was named the winner of RBC’s first ever #Tipworthy contest during the Summer Brand Camp event in Dallas June 5th. Sahagun was surprised with a camera crew, balloons and a cash prize as he walked in for his shift.

See the video of Marco’s surprise here.

Here’s why he won: “I have worked with Marcos at previous restaurants and he provides amazing, quality and thorough service. He is super friendly, attentive and keeps a smile on his face at all times. He makes every guest feel special and even goes out of his way to spark up some kind of conversation witch every table. He always says, ‘Never judge a table by if they ‘look’ like they are good tippers or not’ His excellent service always remains consistent and he is grateful with whatever amount his tables leave him. Marcos is inspiring to me because he works two serving and bartending jobs and hardly ever has time for himself. Despite his long days and hours on his feet, he never complains, and he says he is blessed to even have two jobs when some people can’t even find one. He faces financial challenges as he just moved to San Diego to pursue his dreams of getting back into real estate and helps his family back home at the same time. He is the most giving person I have ever encountered and always, always leaves 20% or more tip when we go out to eat. He says he knows what it is like to do that kind of job and believes in something he calls ‘good tip karma.’”
