re: Chick-fil-A is beating every competitor by training workers to say 'please' and 'thank you
I call bull shite that places like McDonalds and Burger King rank as high as 80+% saying thank you. That is a straight up lie.

And I have never heard “you’re welcome” at CFA. It’s always been “my pleasure.” Seriously. Don’t think I’ve heard it any other way one time.

CFA is awesome.

I know I always find the average OT poster to be highly courteous, consummately polite and extraordinarily nice.

re: Chick-fil-A is beating every competitor by training workers to say 'please' and 'thank you
Chick-Fil-A is as overrated as Popeyes is slammed for poor service. Last time I went to Chick-Fil-A I did NOT get a "My pleasure." What I did get were the worst fries in fast food (expected) and the smallest tenders I've ever seen, just a tad over 1 oz each when I weighed them at home. The chicken doesn't even taste particularly good to me anymore. I've been losing my taste for Chick-Fil-A over the last few years, going less and less, and I won't be going there for myself anymore. The delicious Chick-Fil-A sauce ain't worth buying the food. As for the much loved breakfast biscuit, which I've had a couple of times? Dryest damn thing I've ever had both times.

For comparison, KFC had a "thank you" rate of 84.9%. McDonald's rate was 78.4%


I'd like to know where this was conducted.

No way in hell it was anywhere near Louisiana.

Hell just last night, the chick at Taco Bell didn't say a single word from the time I drove up to the window to the time she handed me my food and slammed the window shut.

I think it’s a very selective process, where less than 5% of those that apply for a franchise are accepted. Also, you have zero say in where you’ll be located and don’t know where the store will go until the end of the process.

I've wondered about this. I do think it varies pretty widely depending on the success of the store. I don't know if true but an owner I know indicated one time that he was closer to $300k. He was drunk when he said it though. His store would definitely be in the top half of stores based on his location.

Canes also hires decent people, they’re always polite every time I’ve ever been there no matter what location. Canes and Chic Fil A hire way better people than the rest of the fast food joints. Most of the others don’t care. Popeyes knows anyone will go there regardless of the losers that work there.

I it tastes fine, but I can count on my fingers the amount of times in my entire life I've had chicken tenders/nuggets. The idea of eating them never crosses my mind, hence why I'm always surprised to see the cult-like CFA following. I really didn't think people ate chicken tenders that often. Same for Canes. I'd never have believed a chicken-tender-only business would thrive.

Clearly I had a weird upbringing.

I think that is part of the charm of Popeyes. Where else can you drive up to the menu and through the speaker hear the ladies discussing “gettin their pussy ate.” True story.

I only eat there two or three times a year, but I still can appreciate that they run a damn fine operation.

You can like something a lot and it doesn't mean you eat there four days a week.

For sure. But you aren't the people I'm referring to Last CFA thread I read, people said they go 1-2 times per week. There's a line at all times and people camp out overnight when new locations open. That's the hysteria about chicken tenders that surprises me.

re: Chick-fil-A is beating every competitor by training workers to say 'please' and 'thank you
It amazes me that, more times than not, a fast food worker will just hand me a bag of food without saying anything. No "thank you," no "here you go," nothing. Not even an acknowledgement. It just seems like a basic human action.
