A Domino’s Delivery Driver Shared What She Makes In Tips—And People Are Shocked

Recently, a Domino’s delivery driver caused quite a stir when she shared what she made in tips on a TikTok video. The delivery driver, who goes by the name @marii_celeste on TikTok, shared that she had made $1,365 in tips over the course of just five weeks. The video has since gone viral, with over 8.6 million views and counting.

What the Video Revealed

In the video, the Domino’s delivery driver shared a breakdown of what she earned in tips each day. As it turns out, she was making an average of $273 per week in tips alone. This means that she was making around $54 per day just in tips.

While this may not seem like a lot of money to some people, it is important to remember that this is in addition to her regular hourly wage. According to PayScale, the average hourly wage for a Domino’s delivery driver is around $8.69 per hour. However, this can vary based on location and experience.

Why People Are Shocked

Many people were shocked to learn just how much money the Domino’s delivery driver was making in tips. Some were even envious of her earnings. However, others were quick to point out that this is not the norm for most delivery drivers.

Typically, delivery drivers rely heavily on tips to supplement their income. According to a report by the National Employment Law Project, the median hourly wage for Food delivery drivers is only $8.55 per hour. This means that many delivery drivers are making just above minimum wage, with tips being their main source of income.

Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic has made it even harder for many delivery drivers to make a living wage. With more people ordering Food for delivery, the competition for tips has only increased.

The Importance of Tipping Delivery Drivers

While it may not be feasible for everyone to tip their delivery driver as generously as the Domino’s delivery driver in the viral video, it is important to remember the importance of tipping. Delivery drivers often rely on tips to make ends meet, and a little extra can make a big difference in their livelihood.

According to a survey by US Foods, the average consumer tips their Food delivery driver around 15%. However, some experts suggest tipping up to 20% or more for exceptional service.

When deciding how much to tip a delivery driver, it is important to take into account factors such as the weather, traffic, and the driver’s level of service. A delivery driver who goes above and beyond to ensure your Food arrives hot and on time deserves to be rewarded for their hard work.


The viral video of the Domino’s delivery driver’s tips may have shocked some, but it serves as a reminder of the hard work and dedication that delivery drivers put in every day. While not all delivery drivers may make as much in tips as the one in the video, it is important to remember the value of tipping and the impact it can have on someone’s livelihood.

So, the next time you order Food for delivery, consider tipping your driver a little extra. It may just make their day.
