A restaurant is becoming more popular since their new CEO told customers to stop tipping his employees.
Noodles & Company, a U.S. fast-food restaurant, has been growing rapidly since Kevin Reddy became its chairman in 2006.
Reddy began paying his employees a higher wage, which is above the minimum wage so that they do not depend on tips.
He believes that waiters and waitresses have to give good service to customers, and that they should not depend on the tip a person can afford to give.
Noodles & Company sells dishes such as noodles, sandwiches, salads and soups inspired by cuisines from around the globe.
Since taking office, Reddy has increased the number of Noodles from 284 stores to 380, which are located in 29 states including Washington, D.C.
Reddy believes that the policy of no tipping is one of the reasons for their success.
