Class Code 9083

Fast Food Restaurant

Class code 9083 is used for employees that work in a restaurant or food service operation that is considered to be “fast food.” Generally, these locations prepare and serve food and beverages that will be eaten both on and off the premise by customers, but not served by wait staff. Examples of restaurants that fall into this classification would be sandwich shops, pizza parlors, concession stands, drive through or walk up hamburger, taco, or fried chicken restaurants, and mall food court operations. Ways to identify a “fast food” establishment are as follows: customers generally order at a counter or window, food is delivered by a worker, but there is no wait staff employed, customers clean their own tables when finished, patrons do not usually leave gratuity, and operations do much of their business on a “carry out” basis. Some caterers, like those who prepare boxed lunches, would be included in this classification, as well as retail stores whose food receipts total more than 50% of the location’s sales, vending machine operators, and workers in some cyber cafés that meet the fast food requirements.

Exclusions to class code 9083 would include fast food restaurants operated by a hotel or motel, “traditional” eat-in restaurants employing wait staff, bars, taverns, lounges, nightclubs, or discotheques, and certain specialty doughnut, coffee, cookie, or sweet shops. Employees working in these operations should be separately classified.
