Lack Of Professional Customer Service
GAINESVILLE, FLORIDA -- Dunkin Donuts 3710 NW 13th Street, Gainesville, Fl.
I was a loyal customer but no longer...Every other Sunday my husband and I get together with another couple, and we bring bagels and either muffins or coffee rolls as well. The order is placed and paid in advanced on Saturday, the day before with a specific pick-up time on Sunday morning. On the last five occasions, dates are: January 25, February 8, February 22, March 8, and March 22, my order has not been ready, or the order is incorrect. On March 8th my husband went in to pick-up the order and stood at the counter for approximately five minutes before being served, and this was after he had to call for someone to come to the front of the store. At the time he was the only customer up front, but what is disturbing is that two employees came up front and no one acknowledge his presence there, said good morning, or how can I help you. This is extremely POOR customer service, unprofessional, and the lack of just plain good manners. Today, March 22, I decided to call ahead to ensure that my order will be ready for pick at 11:00am. I spoke with two Dunkin Donut employees and no one had any information about the order that was placed and paid for in advanced on Saturday night. I had to replace the order!!!!!. I asked to speak with the manager and was told that the manager would be in on Tuesday, March 24th. I went on line to Dunkin Donuts web site. I could find information on everything EXCEPT how to submit a complaint the Corporate Headquarters!!!!
Since 1997 I have been a loyal patron of Dunkin Donuts from Jacksonville to Gainesville, and many other locations. This has me rethinking "why should I continue to spend my money and continue to do business with Dunkin Donuts. I did call the number posted on their website and left a message with my telephone number for a return call. I will see if they do respond as stated the next business day, which will be Monday, March 23rd. I have shared my story with my co-workers, church members, friends and family. There are other bagel shops in town and Krispy Kreme isn't that far up the street.
