Pay It Forward: Local Restaurant Offers 'Pay What You Can'
MIAMISBURG -- "One Bistro is a pay-what-you-can-afford restaurant where we actually give back to the community through a Pay it Forward concept, where our customers don't tip but they pay it forward to help someone else eat," tells Robert Adamson, director and executive chef of One Bistro.
The word "ONE" in One Bistro is an acronym for "Our Neighbors Eat."
Along with being a pay-what-you-can restaurant, they do a free community meal every Wednesday and more than 100 people show up for more than just dinner.
“We are just being relatable people and lovable people, where they feel comfortable asking for more things that they need than just food," tells Adamson.
It's all about community and that's what the silhouette wall located when you first walk in. One Bistro has now been open a year and a half, and its success is made possible by its volunteers.
The workers at One Bistro work on their own time and some even volunteer for food. The customers? They are giving back as well.
"A normal tip in a restaurant is 15 to 20 percent, ours on average is 41 percent," Adamson said.
The food is great, but the operation itself is fulfilling.
For more on One Bistro, visit the restaurant's website.
"You know people talk about the food and how good it is, well it is kind of irrelevant. Especially when you are looking at the big picture of everything, how this thing has evolved into a community building process of relationships. It's really cool," states Adamson proudly.
