  • CAMPAIGN UPDATE: We did it! Casellula has responded and accepted our Spendrise pledges. They will make the change we asked for at their new restaurant in Pittsburgh, PA.  Thank you for being part of this important effort, your pledges to spend helped make this happen. Here's the direct response from Brian Keyser, owner of Casellula:

    “At Casellula we are advocates of a high-road restaurant industry. We are excited to partner with our customers, Diners United, and ROC United in implementing gratuity-free pricing at our brand new Casellula location in Pittsburgh, which will allow us to provide fair, livable wages to all our workers, kitchen and service staff alike. Thank you for speaking up and supporting us with your dining dollars – we hear you, and we agree. We can’t wait to welcome you to Casellula, in New York and now in Pittsburgh.” - Brian Keyser

    Campaign Description

    You pledge to buy a gift card if Casellula commits to provide livable wages to all employees.
    Casellula hears directly from paying customers about what we value
    Employees earn fair, livable wages for their work in a high-road restaurant

    Casellula is a well-loved leader in the restaurant industry, providing exceptional food and service. As restaurant-goers, we're using our dining dollars to encourage Casellula to take the next step in leadership and provide a livable wage for all workers, kitchen staff and service staff alike.

    Some restaurants in New York and around the country have been able to provide livable wages to all employees—including cooks, dishwashers, and porters—by making the change to "gratuity-free" pricing. By including everything in the menu price, this puts the responsibility for paying fair, livable wages on the restaurant and not on diners via tips. To provide livable wages for all employees, we support Casellula in making this important change to 'gratuity-free' and in providing menu prices that reflect the full cost of the meal.

    Make your pledge to spend at Casellula and show your support for the restaurant and their staff in making this bold move. Casellula depends on paying customers--longtime and new alike--supporting them to make this change.
