Man sues Blue Plate restaurant group over health care surcharge for workers


December 16, 2019

Many restaurants like the Freehouse tack on a 3% surcharge for health insurance benefits for employees.

A Twin Cities man is taking a group of several well-known local restaurants to court over a 3% surcharge to cover the expense of health insurance benefits for some of its employees.

Christopher Ashbach, 40, of Arden Hills, has sued the Minneapolis-based Blue Plate Restaurant Co., alleging that it has concealed the "employee wellness" surcharge from diners before the bill arrives in order to avoid scaring off business.
