This is one of the most common questions we receive. In fact, we recently created a Waiter Wallet Comparison Chart, to highlight the differences. That said, we wanted to provide a little more information.
The Original Waiter Wallet is, as the name implies, is our first version. While we still consider it to be the ideal size, some customers prefer the larger Waiter Wallet Sr. and/or Waiter Wallet Jr. That said it is, by far, our most popular version. It fits in the hand perfectly and still it holds everything servers are challenged to carry. So why do we make the other versions? Let me explain.
The Waiter Wallet Sr. was created for restaurants or servers who use a larger size order pad that won’t fit into the Original Waiter Wallet. But, everyone has their unique preference and some servers like the larger size and its larger capacity.
The Waiter Wallet Jr. was made for servers who don’t have the luxury of a apron pocket to put their Waiter Wallet in. So they have to hold their Waiter Wallet in a pant of jacket pocket. While the Original Waiter Wallet does fit into some pants pockets, it’s a bit large. The Waiter Wallet Jr. is also great for bartenders who have to jump out from behind the bar and take a tables order. It is also great for managers who sometimes have to help out taking orders. It can also hold their business cards and their POS swipe card. Oh, and the clear pocket is a great place to hold shift notes or pocket rockets.
Lastly, the Waiter Wallet LTO is identical to the Original Waiter Wallet with one important difference it features a unique clear LTO Pocket on the front of the Waiter Wallet. While this guest-facing pocket is designed to perfectly position a promotional or limited time offer, it can also be used to customize your Waiter Wallet with a special photo or favorite design. Which is exactly what restaurant guru and author of the Renegade Server Tim Kirkland suggests to increase your tips. A photo of a trip you're saving to take, or anything else that guest can relate to, distinguish and personalize you from other servers and will likely lead to higher tips to help pay for that dream vacation.
