Entrepreneur Marcus Lemonis Gives Details Salon a $3,000 Tip to Thank Employees for their Service

January 10, 2021 (Lincolnshire, IL) – Marcus Lemonis, the entrepreneur, philanthropist, advocate and TV personality who leads Camping World as CEO and Chairman of the Board and also hosts HGTV’s The Renovator and CNBC’s The Profit and Streets of Dreams is stepping up to honor the service industry workers across the country thru his Lemon-Aid Foundation, due to the food & service industries being greatly impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Marcus launched The Great American Tip Off in November and pledged $1 million from his Lemon Aid Foundation to tip servers and workers across the country. Marcus has enlisted some of his friends to join the movement to thank those in the service industry – he’s made visits across the US to businesses with Amy Schumer, Jason Biggs, Kristen Bell, Rob Dydrek, among others.

“Ultimately, it’s about our service providers who serve without expectation and it’s important to acknowledge those that provide opportunities for others. These are the real heroes – the ones that need the recognition,” said Lemonis. “I encourage you to join the movement, and award those who give great service with a great tip.”

A recent grant recipient is Details Salon, a modern beauty salon offering a variety of hairstyling and beauty services out of Springfield, MO that was awarded $3,000 to share amongst their employees due to a social media nomination.

“This surprise gift comes at the right time as our staff is so hardworking and was completely blown away by this kind gesture,” said owner Jan Pearl. “Details has 14 many of which have been at the salon for 20 years. We will definitely pay-forward in the future.”
