BENEFITS MINNESOTA BOARDER TOWNS
EVERY state bordering Minnesota has a tip credit! This puts Minnesota restaurants in border towns at a significant
competitive disadvantage. Many chain restaurants and independent restaurants will avoid opening a restaurant in
Minnesota border towns (Moorhead, MN is a classic example where many new restaurants are started in adjacent
Fargo, ND … see the below). This has a negative impact on the economies of MN border towns, and Minnesota as
a whole, as it means fewer businesses and jobs.
MOORHEAD, MN – The City Council has recently been weighing the idea of lobbying for a tip credit
in Minnesota to match North Dakota’s. Council members have stated that bringing new restaurants
to Moorhead is a number 1 issue for many residents.
