Vancouver man asked to prepay for food at Elmer's, files racial lawsuit

Posted: Updated:
VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

An African-American man is filing a racial discrimination suit against the Elmer’s food chain after he was allegedly asked to prepay for his food at a restaurant in Vancouver.

Brian Eason said a waitress asked him to prepay for his meal because she said they had been having problems with people walking out without paying their bills.

But when Eason asked a white couple also inside the restaurant if they had to prepay, they said no.

Elmer’s released a statement saying, “we are proud to provide a welcoming guest experience to everyone in the communities we serve. We are disappointed to hear about the complaint which occurred at an Elmer’s location owned and operated by one of our franchisees.”

Eason is now seeking $100,000 from Elmer’s.
