NORTHEAST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - A South Florida juice bar started the new year with a tremendous tip from one of their longtime customers.

Miami Squeeze in Northeast Miami-Dade posted the receipt on their Instagram page, Friday afternoon.

“A beautiful client of ours blessed our whole team,” said owner Warren Amar.

The loyal customer wrote a note thanking the staff for all they do and left them a $2,021 tip on a $71.84 order, leaving employees stunned and grateful.

“2021 came in as expected on that tip,” said Amar.

Employees said they are thankful and humble someone would consider making the generous gesture.

“We always look forward to these types of things, and it kind of builds an incentive for us to work harder and cater to them,” said manager Julian Salgado. “That’s why it’s such a good thing. It’s always a revolving relationship.”

“The community is our business. If there’s no community, then we can’t stay open, and we’re very thankful to have all these great clients of ours, that became family at this point,” said Amar.

With a difficult 2020 behind them, the juice bar’s staff said, they hope to continue going forward and keep serving the community as best they can.

“We’re always going to win, becayse what we do, it’s for the people,” said Amar, “and when you do things from the heart, you’ll always be winning.”

The staff said they know who the customer who left the massive tip is, but they want to keep her identity private.
