Customer Service at ChickFilA


It never ceases to amaze me how ChickFilA values customer service. Every time I go to one, no matter where, its always "Yes Sir, Thank You Sir, My Pleasure." Only FF restaurant where the manager walks around and asks you if you need anything. Very rarely can you walk through the door without multiple people telling you "Hello" or "Welcome". There can be 30 people in line, and you'll still never have to wait more than 5 mins to get your food.

All this for a chicken shack whose meals are no more expensive (sometimes a lot less expensive) than McDonalds. Furthermore, they are typically staffed with twice the number of people McDonalds are. Why is it that ChickFilA can attract a higher quality worker than McDonalds? Franchise vs Corporately owned?

McDonalds = too big to fail and they know it. Like Walmart.

Consequently they don't give a shite about customer service, and their hiring practices reflect that.

In BR, the worst service always came from BK and Jack in the Box and every fricking popeyes ever.


One word can sum up the difference: demographics

I guess Popeyes is the exception to that rule?

Part of the Operator's responsibility in managing the store is preparing young people for life/ career / college. Store Operator's are actually supposed to be mentors as well as bosses.

Doesn't always happen, but that is part of the overall plan.

Publicly traded vs privately owned makes all the difference. Publicly traded companies care only about the bottom line.
