If You Owned A Restaurant Wouldn't You Give Cops1/2 Off?

When I see a cop in the drive-thru or at a restaurant, I always wonder if they get a discount. They should if they don't. If I had a restaurant, I would give 1/2 off to the police anyway. They don't make a lot and then my restaurant or fast-food place would be the most secure place in town.

I'd love extend that to firemen, military etc but before long you would be out of business, so just cops.

I used to work for a well-known fastfood restaurant when I was a teen and police and EMS workers were allowed to eat free because our manager felt that they might not be able to finish their meal before a call came in.

Yep also a legit reason. If I owned an eatery I'd certainly let them eat free, a few buck here and there isn't going to hurt your business and goodwill can be even more important.

I wouldn't serve them at all, and demand that they leave. Just me tho.

My dad and brother are cops! They generally are given half off their meals just about everywhere and some places they eat free. And both work in different cities. I love to take my Dad to "lunch", I usually only have to pay for myself!!! And he covers the tip! hehehehehe!

And I am sure they are fine men SB, but I treat it like they treat us...they are all potentially a threat to my safety. If I avoid them completely then I can't run into any bad ones.

The "me vs them" mentality only serves to perpetuate the problem and fuel the fire for those on the other side of the arbitrary dividing line.

I would give a discount no doubt. I would also extend that to military. I know that Chik-Fil-A gives cops a pretty good discount. Back a long long time ago, I worked at Domino's Pizza and we would feed the cops for free. There were two that came by frequently and I got to know both and basically I didn't have to worry about tickets AT ALL so it was very beneficial and having them around the store made for a safer environment. They also escorted whomever was going to the bank for the nightly deposit. A medium pie cost (back then) about a dollar to make so it was a no brainer.

I get where you are coming from, but the restaurant situation should be different. If you gave a discount to cops then you would build a relationship with the cops that come into your business. Unless you are breaking the law, you should get some benefits from that relationship. Cops tend to give the benefit of the doubt to people that they know. So, speeding tickets and tickey tack stuff like tail lights and window tint would certainly get you a warning. It isnt the same thing as walking down the street and coming across a cop you dont know.
