Providing a Living Wage

In order to help pay staff better, we have instituted an additional 7.5% charge to your bill to help pay for those benefits to our part & full-time staff. This is not a tip, but goes directly to paying for these benefits and higher wages. Here is an example of what this is paying for:


-Higher than average pay

-Annual raises. Given even during the pandemic

-Paid vacation for all full-time staff. Starting with 1 week paid and some staff currently have 3 weeks paid vacation due to longevity with the company

-100% employer paid health insurance for full-time staff

-Company Sponsored Retirement Plan with 3% matching funds

-Year-end bonuses

-6 Paid Holidays off

-Paid sick time for full time staff

-4 Free chiropractic visits per year

-$100 annual work shoe stipend for full-time staff

-Paid bereavement leave

-Snow Day Pay-If we are closed due to inclement weather, all full-time hourly staff get paid full pay

-50% discount on staff food

-25% discount to the Walpole Valley Farms store

-Fun staff events- Trips to Food Shows, Amusement parks, deep sea fishing and more


These are some of the things that we offer to provide jobs that matter to people and make them feel appreciated, and can spend time and care for their families. Please reach out to us if you have any questions about this or anything else. Thank you for your continued support of The Hungry Diner.
