How much should I tip pizza delivery drivers?

It is extremely common to purchase pizza delivery for a board game night or whenever you want to avoid the dishes. Pizza is a simple and tasty dish to share with your family and friends especially when you have picky eaters around. With innovative products like gluten-free crust and premium ingredients, pizza is a popular option amongst Americans, and during these pandemic times, the demand for pizza delivery keeps growing. 

The majority of people who’ve|  ever ordered pizza (or any other food delivery service) more than likely have wondered just how much to tip the driver. 

Tipping is an odd thing, while it is technically not obligatory, avoiding the tip for the delivery driver is considered  or rude. If you do not wish to tip your delivery person, we strongly advise you to purchase food for pick up instead. For orders of $20 or less, people normally offer a minimum tip of $3 but if you think about it and ask yourself if you would make the very same journey for $3 bucks, you may want to increase that amount.

It is strongly recommended to tip a minimum of $5 dollars no matter how much the overall cost is. For more pricey orders, it is traditional to offer between 10% and 15% of the total bill. Another thing to think about when tipping food delivery drivers is the climate condition. Throughout extreme weather such as snow, heavy rain, or hail, you should think about tip a minimum of 15% to 20%.

Generally, pizza delivery drivers are paid minimum wage (or perhaps less) and expose their lives driving around town so you can enjoy a freshly made pizza without leaving your house, that is why tipping is rather crucial.

Some drivers get paid a small amount for every delivery to aid with the cost of gas but in many cases, they need to cover this expense without any assistance from the company. You also have to think about that delivery drivers normally have to pay for their own insurance and wear and tear on their vehicles and maintenance costs. As you can see, working as a delivery person is a hard job so your tips really make a difference to the driver.

If you got awful service from the business, your driver was late or the food was cold and you choose not to tip, the least that you can do is call the store and let them know you had a bad experience. The majority of the time, the problem with the delivery has nothing to do with the driver. In many cases, the problem is with the kitchen staff who took a very long time or with a manager who assigned way too many orders to the same delivery guy. 

So if you had an issue with your order, the very best thing you can do is at least provide the driver a small tip and complain straight to the dining establishment, that way they can improve and make changes in their system, and if you are lucky they may provide you a coupon for your future order.
