@MissChristinaGinger:  Just wondering who you’re using (if you don’t mind me asking)… I’m in the process of looking for a caterer in the Northern NJ area.  Thanks!

Is the 26/hour for each of the wait staff or for all?  If for each, per hour, I do not think tipping is necessary.  If he isnt providing any help, just delivery, then I think that is enough.

I would say to not tip the owner since many people do not tip owners of the business. I would tip the staff. Our caterer added 20% for a “service charge” for tip. So maybe $20 for each person?

@MissChristinaGinger:  I would throw the four servers $20/each as a “thank you”, but DEFINITELY nothing for the owner!
