Differential Pay FAQ

Broadly speaking, differential pay is additional compensation for existing or new team members to work certain shifts. For example, offering an additional $2 per hour for closing shifts.

Delaget Differential Pay is available to any Taco Bell Franchisee on eRestaurant who chooses to opt-in. Other BOH systems are not currently supported.

Delaget is building a tool that will allow franchisees to easily manage and apply pay differential rules giving operators a tool to help overcome staffing challenges, keep stores open at key times and run more profitable restaurants.

Some Taco Bell franchisees have attempted to implement differential pay, only to find that the process of building, managing, monitoring rules, and tracking them to run payroll was arduous. 

Delaget Differential Pay is available at no cost to Taco Bell Franchisees through June 30, 2023. More information regarding pricing structure will be available in Q1 2023. 

Simply put, this program presents the opportunity to run more profitable restaurants. Through our dozens of conversations with operators, we worked to understand the value that offering Pay Differential might have.

Here’s an example of a single-unit operator that is offering $2/hr to close at 3AM instead of 2AM, using an average sales for that hour. With that $2 of differential pay being applied to the entire shift, this example shows an annual increase in profit of $29,040.

These are estimated numbers showing a potential use case. This model should help you get started in evaluating the opportunities at your store(s). This example looks at only a single opportunity; staying open one hour later.

There are various other opportunities to increase your store’s profit:

  • Staying open on/around holidays
  • Embracing late night
  • Keeping stores open during staffing shortages
  • Balancing staffing throughout the day, giving more senior staff incentive to take late night shifts

In our franchisee interviews, there was a large variation based on need, market and other factors. It was in the $1-$5/hour range.
Anecdotally, we heard that $1/hour didn’t have a significant impact on shift coverage, whereas $3-$5/hour did.
