Hardee's Informative - Discrimination And Poor Services At Hardee's In Jacksonville FL
JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA -- I went to Hardee's for breakfast this morning. I sat in the drive thru with the line not moving until my daughter was going to be late for work and we had to leave (20 minutes, no movement at all of the cars ahead of me). We left and took her to work.
My son and I still wanted biscuits, so we went back. The fact is, they do have the best biscuits in fast food. I went inside because the drive thru was still backed up. I get inside and there are two people in line ahead of me waiting to order. I quickly realize there are 15 other people waiting for food they already ordered. An older couple and an older single person say they've been waiting for thirty minutes. I already gave my order, so now I am waiting too. I wait for 30 minutes while all of these other people wait too; none of the waiting customers have received their food yet. Then a man in line orders and his food is handed to him immediately right there are the cash register while the rest of us keep waiting.
I figure he ordered only one thing and something they had ready? and I keep waiting like the others. More people order and wait. The single older man finally gets his food, he has been waiting 55 minutes for it. Another person comes through and is handed her food immediately, she had three items and one of those items is the same as something on my order that I am waiting for??? I quickly realize all these waiting people are white. The two who got food right away are black. The whole staff in the restaurant is black too, not a white person in it other than waiting customers.
We stand and wait, the older white couple gets their food after waiting 1 hr and 10 minutes. Another black person comes through and gets his food right then, then two more do. And I keep waiting. It is all I can do not to just throw a big screaming fit in protest. Finally, after 1 hr and 27 minutes, yes I timed it, I get my food and leave. There are still roughly 8 whites waiting for food and no blacks. This location does about equal white and black business from looking around at customers, so you can't just explain it by saying more whites eat there. It isn't right for people to discriminate based on color, be it black, white or other. Hardee's should do better than this. Why is their breakfast always so slow? And why do these employees think it is okay to pick and choose who gets their food???
Hardee's on Merrill Rd. Jacksonville FL Don't set foot on their property-- boycott this place. If they don't want to service whites, then don't make them.
