Free workshops in August will help restaurants plan for minimum wage increases

The City of Minneapolis is sponsoring a free workshop, offered twice in August, for restaurant owners looking for strategies to adjust to the Minneapolis minimum wage ordinance.

The workshop, on Aug. 2 and again on Aug. 15 at the Minneapolis Central Library, will offer restaurants an opportunity for free one-on-one business consulting through the City’s Business Technical Assistance Program (B-TAP). The sessions will be facilitated by Cue the Accountant, a local consulting firm focused on the restaurant and hospitality industry. The City aims to help restaurants increase wages and maintain or increase profitability.  

Planning for Profitability workshops
9-10 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 2; and 3 p.m.-4 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 15
Doty Board Room (second floor) at Minneapolis Central Library, 300 Nicollet Mall
Restaurants in Minneapolis should register online. Questions can be directed to Emily Peterson at [email protected].

On July 1, 2018, the minimum wage in Minneapolis increased to $10.25 for small employers and $11.25 for large employers. The Minneapolis minimum wage ordinance defines small businesses as 100 or fewer employees and large businesses as more than 100 employees. The minimum wage will increase to $15 for large businesses in 2022 and for small businesses in 2024.

The ordinance supports the City’s goals of promoting inclusive economic growth by reducing economic and racial disparities. For more information about the ordinance, visit, call 311 or email [email protected].
