Store Pits Iron Man Vs. Batman In Battle To Bring In More Tips

If you’re looking to give people a reason to drop a dime (or preferably a dollar) in that tip jar, how about turning the whole process into a popularity contest that taps into your customers’ inner comic book fan boy/girl?

That’s what the folks at Depanneur, a grocery store in Brooklyn, did recently when they turned their tip jar into a battle between Batman and Iron Man. Of course, both of these character’s alter egos are wealthy beyond all imagination (though Tony Stark did beat out Bruce Wayne in a recent Forbes list), so neither of them are much in need of extra cash.

Regardless, this approach is a fun way of encouraging customers to show their appreciation — both for your staff and for their favorite fictional crime fighter.
