Think You Have What It Takes To Be A Spytender? (Requirements)

SpyTending events work best for groups that:

  • Are non-profit – 501c3 status is required to participate in the program
  • Have a lot of friends that like to eat and drink – since you earn 10% of the profits, the more people buy, the more your group earns
  • We require a $250 spend on food and beverage
  • Know a lot of big tippers – all tips from the event go back to your organization!
  • Have a competitive edge – the most successful groups often have SpyTenders who battle it out, divvying up the time slot between two bartenders and encouraging a face off to see who can drum up the most sales/tips!
  • Have a large Facebook following – check out our top tips for promoting your event and spreading the word!
  • Plan in advance – for best results, we recommend a minimum of three months advance notice to properly promote your event
