A North Carolina restaurant has announced it’s putting the business in the hands of God and letting customers pay what they want for their meals.

According to a Sept. 29 post on the Facebook page for the restaurant Just Cookin in Dallas, North Carolina:

I am putting my “FAITH” where my CASH REGISTER is.

I am letting go and letting GOD!!

No prices….No totals…..You pay what you think your meal is worth!!!

“I gave Him control of the cash register,” Dana Parris told the Gaston Gazette. “There’s been a few people who got to eat who didn’t have the money. And there’s been a lot of people who have overpaid what the normal price would be. We’ve been blessed. Revenues are up.”

This unique policy is a complete 180º from the restaurant customers who claim their faith forbids them from paying for their entire meals because the servers’ lifestyles go against their religion. Also worth noting: the “pay what you wish” concept, most often associated with museums, does exist at some eateries. Panera has been running pay-what-you-wish restaurants across the U.S. for the past four years, so the neediest people can get something to eat and even volunteer to work there as payment.
