HOUSTON, TEXAS -- At the corner of Clay/Brittmore in Houston Texas is a convenience store and a Churches Fried Chicken. Today about 9:30 AM I was parked there enjoying my coffee that I purchased from the convenience store, while I waited for an important phone call. Churches was closed at the time and I was legally parked and minding my own business, and staying away from the busy convenience store traffic.
A female Churches Fried Chicken person drives up in her car (the Churches Fried Chicken place was closed) and said that I was in an employee parking area which is not posted that way. I was parked with one (1) other car the area, and properly parked. There was at least 8-10 empty spaces available for employees or customers. She gives me a (talking to for parking there)not nicely eitherand said I was not to park there and to close the door of the truck (pick-up truck).
I guess I was in her parking space that does NOT AND I REPEAT NOT have HER name on any of the parking spaces. If she would have asked me kindly I would have been happy to have moved but I will not if someone treats me like a dog. Lady I am a human being and I will be treated that way!!
I would like to know who told her she was God and that she has a say to where people park. I believe this is still the United States of America and I have a right to park anywhere I please. Thank you. I found out her name is Huminder and her boss is Kevin. The employees are obviously afraid of these people and I had to go to the convenience store to get any information. The Convenience store said that they are not nice or friendly to them either and refuse to do their part to help clean up the rest rooms.
I strongly suggest, they need a LOT of customer service training because they have NO TRAINING. Further, I have eaten there and their food is BAD. I think I might need to contact the Health Department. Obviously, if they can't cook, can't clean up the restrooms, can't manage the store and they have NO CUSTOMER SERVICE skills at all.
I wonder what good are they and they. Maybe they need to SHUT DOWN this store. I am not sure I have the correct store number but the only info I could get from the employee was store 11778!! District manager you might want to look in to your employees that run this store. Further If I want to park there and park with my door open I WILL! Probably Monday morning just for fun. If you think I am mad I AM.
NEW BOSTON, TEXAS -- Firstly, the staff portrayed a large amount of incompetence and a bad attitude towards customers. No one attended to me for about ten minutes, and when the food service worker finally showed up, she showed a severe lack of interest. She had to take my order three times, but even so, she still presented me the wrong food!
Secondly, the service was very slow & poor. I ordered tender strips and this dork gave me 2 thighs and 1 leg. I asked her the if she understood my order and she still messed it up. What made matters worse was that after waiting for so long, the food service brought the wrong food and she had to take it back, she became loud and angry. I stood my ground and let her know she will not talk to me without respect.
The female is the rude one who wears loud ruby red lipstick and a jewel between her eyes. I called back to speak to the manager who is a female name (**) and she was very unconcerned about this issue and showed no interest in what I was reporting to her about the incident. I decided to take matter in my own hands and report it.
Thirdly, the food itself was of very poor quality. It was quite cold and tasteless. Immediately I reached home, I suffered from very bad diarrhea which lasted for two days. All these things considered, I feel I need to be compensated. In addition, I demand that you improve the service at particular Church's Chicken restaurant or improve the quality of the food, as the service being offered is hazardous to the health of your customers. I have notified the local health department, therefore I will be reporting it to the authorities myself.
ORANGE, TEXAS -- This afternoon, my husband stopped at Church's Fried Chicken to order some chicken for supper. He doesn't like to go to Church's but that is the only fried chicken restaurant in our small town. He was treated so badly as usual. The employees have this don't care attitude. Others that have gone there have reported to us the same thing, saying that they (the employees) just don't care if you order or not, or if you get what you ordered. Church's won't be getting any more of our business. We will look for a grocery store that sells fried chicken, and the employees are very friendly. Also, the chicken is fried just a bit too long, it is not a golden brown, but a bit dark.
COLUMBUS, OHIO -- Visiting Church's Chicken on Main Street close to downtown Columbus, Ohio makes me feel like I'm collecting evidence to write a horror book. I don't visit often, but when I do I feel as if I am adding information to my book. This time, I ordered a 9 pc special (just chicken). I was told it comes with 3 white PCS and the rest dark. I asked for 3 wings and the rest legs. I wasn't told I would be waiting 7 minutes for my order, someone put the chicken on the wrong timer.
When I got home I had 2 breast, 1 wing, and 6 legs. We started eating, put the hot sauce all over my breast. First I tasted the hot sauce as I continue to eat my mouth was filled with a burnt taste. I turned on the big light and looked at the chicken it was burnt. By then 4 PCS was ate by my family.
I called and person whom answered the phone did not introduce themselves. I told her my dilemma. She said, "Bring the chicken back." I stated "I was not coming back tonight." She said, "If you do make sure you have a receipt." What happened to "I apologize", she made me feel as if I stole some burnt chicken and that it was my fault.
I was inconvenienced, we could not eat the chicken, and I really do not understand why this location is still open. The people whom are called managers has poor skills, slow, it is OK to be slow if you're getting the orders right. The rating for the service was hard because I could not find what comes before the star. They do not deserve 1 star.
MORENO VALLEY, CALIFORNIA -- On September 05, 2013, I went inside the Church's Chicken in Moreno Valley at about 6:14pm. I ordered my chicken, the cashier said the wait time was 15 minutes for the chicken. I went to the restroom. When I was coming out, the rude employee opened the kitchen door hard and hurt me on my left arm. She said "I'm sorry", I left for home. I woke up in the morning with pain in my arm. I been calling the restaurant to report this incident with no answer. September 6, 2013 and my arm is swollen and I don't have medical insurance.
FARMINGTON, NEW MEXICO -- Today for lunch, I decided to drive-through Church's Chicken, since it was close to another appointment I had scheduled. I return to work with my lunch, and after opening the bag, the lettuce on my chicken sandwich had a brownish tint to it, and the mayo tasted rancid. I also ordered a 5-piece boneless honey BBQ, but wasn't given any napkins or even a fork to eat it with. I scrounged around the employee break room back at work, and eventually found a fork. The boneless chicken tasted great!
So, for those of you keeping score, we have great tasting boneless chicken vs. brown lettuce, rancid mayo, no napkins, and no fork. The scales seemed to be tipping in favor of an all out verbal assault or irate online review. However, there was something during my visit that trumped these miscues. And that was good ol' fashioned customer service with a smile.
From the time I ordered, to the time I pulled away and into the street. They greeted as friendly as one possibly could, just short of coming outside and hugging me. The food was served promptly, and I saw nothing but smiles on the faces of the drive-through workers and a sincere thank you as they handed the food out the window.
If I was on the Undercover Boss show, I would've definitely rewarded that crew for their excellent customer service. Even though the order was less than satisfactory, the great attitude they displayed will have me coming back to give them a second chance.
TEMPLE, TEXAS -- I went to Church's at about 6:10 p.m. CST. I walk in and there were about 4 to 5 customers in line in front of me and about 4 or 5 cars in drive up window. The employee at the window told the person at drive up window that they were out chicken and they drove off mad as hell. I ask him "how long before the chicken is ready." No answer. I ask again thinking he didn't hear me. Still no answer. So I ask again a little louder. Still no answer - just a blank stare from dumb and dumber.
Some of the customer in front of me didn't get any answer either and walk out just like I did. I been a Church's customer for over 50 yrs. and never been treated as bad as I have been today. If this is the type of operations you're going to run then you might as well declare chapter 13 and close the whole chain down before you drown in your own dirty grease.
CHICAGO, ILLINOIS -- To whom it may concern: I go to the Church's Chicken on 79th and Damen. And every time I go I get my food and it's burned. And I ask can they cook me some more, they say no. And the reason why it is burned is because it is old grease. Why do they use old grease? Would you like to eat burned chicken? I know that you wouldn't so why do you sell it to the people who come there.
And I also go to the one on 69th Western and the chicken there stinks. I don't understand why you all sell that kind of food to people. And also why they put it in a bag, why not still the box because the bag is not good. I work at a hospital and that is not good to put in a bag. I hope that you all do something about this. Thank you.
DALLAS, TEXAS -- I enter Church's Chicken at the cross road at loop 12. I purchased two 2 piece orders of spicy chicken, with 2 biscuits and a medium drink. I paid for my order and left. As I drove off I bit into a chicken leg, and to my surprise it was bloody on the inside. I returned to the Church's and asked the lady for a refund on my purchase due to the chicken being undercooked. There was no manager in the store, the employer said "I cannot refund your money, my register will come up short."
I wrote on the back of my receipt my name and phone number and explained that the chicken was bloody and had the employer to sign the receipt. She told me the manager would be back, she had to call him. I returned at 4pm, she stated that another customer came in with a 10 piece and her chicken was bloody. She also told me that the manager came in and he said he would be back. It has been 2 days and the manager has not contacted me. I feel as though if they cannot cook the chicken properly, they should obtain better management. I still have not received my refund.
TRINITY, TEXAS -- My son has an opportunity but needs a legal document from the company that he is not working there anymore. The manager refuses to sign such government document and now my son may miss out on this benefit which would help him and his family. The human resources of the corporate office will fax to the institution but can't get to it to the end of the week, but the problem is it is needed much sooner like yesterday instead of tomorrow.
The woman at the center did not realize that he needed this till today but since there is a deadline there is not much more she can do and the manager refuses to sign and the managers headquarters says they can't get to it till the end of the week. What problems is there in a manager signing that an employee no longer works there. This is not for unemployment benefits, this is a document that has no ramifications for the business, but would open up a opportunity for my son which now he will probably not be able to receive. Signed just a sad mom.
