Waffle House / terrible experience
Southern Waffle House purchased the Nashville based franchise from Tree Top Group in 1999 by the Shaub family and have grown the business now to 113 stores. Those of us who grew up with Waffle House (from the 1950's) know that WH is a legend in their own time, and we know and appreciate what we have had over years. SE WH recently chose Chapter 11 bankruptcy to cure their problems and now it appears their are other, more malicious events including check kitting, embezzlement of company funds, numerous harassment charges by employees, poor hiring practices, unclean/unsafe food preparation, taking advantage of new employees, rampant stealing by employees and management, drug use by employees including sales in their bathrooms and this can go on and on. Numerous calls and written complaints to corporate management in Georgia brings nothing and the local store is informed and the complainer questioned by store management, in one case told to not come back to the store solely on the basis of a justified complaint.
This WH franchisee will hire anyone based upon their ability to breathe and to sometimes wash their hands. They hire druggies, common criminals, major criminals who are not screened for the protection of their customers sake, active and ex prostitutes, barmaids who have been run out of the liquor business. They go out to the truckstops and pickup 'pavement princesses' to act as waitresses, hire them THEN ignore the stealing, shortchanging customers, etc.
After nearly 50 years of patronizing WH, locally in Nashville and traveling the southeast, we will not grace the foyer of any of these hashhouses again. Hash used to mean a food substance now it appears as an illegal substance. Unforgivable, not worth your money, your self esteem or your time to support. These are trash houses serving food not fit for humans OR animals and they need to close... starting with SE Waffle based in Nashville and regionally with their 113 stores. Garbage merchants...
