service

Ordered chicken, ttendent tol me the original will be 14 min. Wait. Fine I waited 20 min. Till she called my...

terrible service!

My husband and I wanted to buy take aways from Kentucky Fried Chicken in Centurion (South Africa) yesterday, 2 February 2008. The employee touched our food with her hands, after cleaning some of the tables and touching customers money with her hands. Needless to say, we decided to leave. She was offended and very upset when we indicated this to her. The management of Kentucky Fried Chicken in South Africa need to apply effective selection and recruitment procedures and train their staff properly. This is not the first time I have made a complaint and am surprised that South Africans still support KFC. We are satisfied with substandard service and tolerate employees that get cross with customers when they perform poorly. In order to make South Africa a better place and in order to teach my fellow South Africans high standards, I will continue to make complaints, until we get it right.

    At the dinner hour I went to Kentucky Fried Chicken on Silver Spring & Lovers Lane in Milwaukee to buy some guess what, chicken. Would you know that they didn't have chicken! not even the original chicken. Imagine, no chicken at dinner time at a chicken restaurant. Maybe the store was crowded, ah maybe not, there were no cars in the parking lot. I thought McDonald's was bad when they didn't have egg mcmuffin at breakfast time. Do you now have to call ahead for reservations at fast food restaurants...

    Please do not place this on the web. This complaint will embarrass my wife.

    My wife doesn’t know I submitted this complaint, she won’t forgive me. My wife is very soft spoken and just except the consequences coming her way. She’s the most loving person.
    Dear Sir / Madam, for the past 7 years I’m bedridden and cannot walk and for this 7 years my wife were looking after me 24/7 and never complains. She will get up, get herself ready for the day, making breakfast for me and see that I’m washed and she will put the food together for the rest of the day especially for me. At 07h30 she leaves home for work in Midrand. Her day ends at the office at approximately at 17h00 but sometimes she will work till 18h00 or 18h30. She will get home at 19h00 or 19h30. Then her whole attention will be on me for about an hour. During this time she will be between the bedroom and the kitchen making dinner. My wife’s day ends at 23h00 or 23h30. Her days never end not even on weekends. During the week when my wife works I have a nurse looking after me but on weekends I do not have a nurse to look after me then my wife take over that function. For the past 4 to 6 years, my sickness took over the household.
    On her way home my wife will stop at Kentucky Fried Chicken drive through in Centurion to buy us food on Tuesdays nights. Tuesdays is our quality time night when we spent together and then she will sit with me and enjoy all her programs on TV. She would buy extra food so that she does not need to make for me food the next day (the nurse eats out of the house). She would buy the following: 8 X Chicken pieces, 2 X Large Mash and Gravy, 1 X Large Gravy, 2 X Zingers, 4 X Small Loafs Bread and 2 to3 different Large Salads.

    Sometimes you will find 1 X Large and 1 X Small Mash and Gravy and or only Gravy and 1 X small Mash and Gravy, 1 X Chicken piece not there. Sometimes she would replace the Chicken with Hot Chicken Wings and will be a shortfall of chicken in the box. The order will change every week given to my wife but she will pay the full amount as per above order. Every week she will complain to the cashiers or request to see the manager. As she complains they just pull their shoulders up and say if the order is not correct come back immediately.

    Sir / Madam at 19h00 the Nurse looking after me, leaves the house once my wife arrives at home, my wife can not return back to Centurion to rectify the order from Pierre van Rynevelt. She cannot leave me alone I need constance supervision. She is the only bread winner in our house, we cannot drive up and down or pay extra time to the nurse to look after me while she short out the food she bought from KFC. Please help us in this matter.

poisoned salmonella!

On Sunday 27th January 2008, I was visiting the Pavilion Shopping Centre in Durban. At 11h30 I bought myself a Jalapeno Twister from KFC. I did not eat anything else that day as I did not feel hungry. By 10pm that evening I was vomiting severely with watery diarrhea and acute stomach pains followed by temperatures and chills. My husband rushed me through to the doctor the following morning. It was established that seen as though the Twister was the only food I had eaten that day that was different to what the rest of the family had eaten, that I had developed Salmonella Poisoning. It is now 3 days later and still I am suffering bouts of nausea and have no appetite whatsoever. I know I will never be able to prove beyond a show of doubt that it was defiantly the KFC however I vow never to eat KFC again so long as I breathe fresh air.

    I totally agree with your symptoms. Two nights ago me and my family ate KFC from Miranda in Sydney and my daughter after asked to stay at her grandmothers which I allowed. During the night I kept coming in and out of my sleep and because I've been through this quite a few years back I knew what was to come. Not long after I was running to the toilet vomitting and diarrhea. My partner woke up asking if I was alright saying he did'nt feel right. He too started vomitting and diarhea in our 2nd bathroom. All through my mind I was hoping my daughter at her Grands was ok. Through a long morning of that and a twisting knot in our stomachs, sweats and chills we continued through the next day. Early that morning we got a phone call that my daughter had been throwing up all through the night. She came home and recouperated. Later that night she said to me "Mummy, every-time I thought of chicken I kept throwing up" ... My poor daughter. I can't imagine what a child has to go through when it's hard for parent's to go through the same thing. My day off I spent the whold day and night in bed. Today I'm at work and still feel buggered from it all. I've rung the services to complain and they asked if I had a doctors certificate... dam buggers. I should of kept the spew and diarhea for them to check.

insect in food!

Can someone please give me advice?? My complaint dates back to 31 March 2007. The chips I ordered at KFC Okovango branch in Brackenfell had an insect in it and when I took it back to the store, the assured me that Customer Services would collect it the next day for tests. I took photos of the chips as I wasn't convinced that the same chips would be sent for chips. They sent me a R60 voucher (that I have never and will never use). However, I heard nothing from them again with regards to the tests.

I phones the Call Center they use for their complaints and they said that they were still busy with the tests and the lady who answered said that coincidentally she is the person who handles the insect complaints and that she will sort it out. After hearing nothing from them for months, I posted complaints on Hellopeter website. They kept saying they would phone me, but never did. After having to make 3 complaints on there in a period of more than 3 months, I received a call from a guy by the name of Gary at the Call Center. He said according to him, the complaint was finalized as they sent me the pathetic R60 voucher and asked if I am the person who is continually making complaints on the website. I said yes!! - If they had phoned me as promised, I wouldn't have done that and that the voucher didn't mean it was finalized (What about the test they promised!!). He said that I should forget about it and that I will never receive the tests! He was even making light of the situations and when I asked to speak to his manager- he said that he is the manager. I then phoned the area manager (Morne) who was very polite and understanding. He asked me to send him the photos and that he would get back to me. HE phoned me a couple of months ago and told me again that the chips were lost but that they would do tests on the photos. He came back to me saying the photos weren't clear enough to be tested at the lab. He then gave me the nr of Nicci Rule saying that he discussed the matter with them at Yum Foods International. I sent her an email and she sent a very nice email apologizing and said that she passed the matter on to her staff as she is on holiday in Australia but that she would contact me as soon as she gets back. Her colleagues phoned me saying that they were going to do tests at the lab with a microscope and phoned me a couple of days later to say that the insect was unidentifiable and that the would send me the lab report. Two days later, the lab phoned to ask if they had sent the report. I said no and the lady said that she would send it. That was about a week ago. In the meantime I went to the actual store to ask to see the complaint logbook I had signed that evening as I wanted to see if Customer Services ever signed for collection of the chips ( you see- the two stories are contradicting- one says the chips were never collected and the other says they were collected but got lost) Anyways, I asked the new store manager, he went to the back of the store and after five minutes he came back saying the don't have such a thing as a log book!! (BUT I SIGNED ONE). He said that he spoke to the previous manager and she said they never had one. (I hope you see why I am even more worried at this point). Well, needless to say, I have never received the lab report and after 9 months of begging and pleading for answers, still nothing but contradicting meaningless stories. CAN SOMEBODY GIVE ME SOME ADVICE? I AM NOT LEAVING THIS UNTIL I GET SOME ANSWERS FOR THIS WHOLE MESS!!!

scam and fraud!

In Botswana KFC condiment packets claim to be a proud sponsor of SOS Children's Villages. Each time a customer buys food at KFC they are under the impression that their payment in some way helps SOS Children's Villages in Botswana - yet we receive NOTHING. We ask one of the managers - and she said she would "get back to us".

    I went to KFC Store #L 367008, on 10-04-08, ordered 10pcs Meal special. The posted prize was $18.99.
    When I get home the bucket had only 8 pcs of chicken.
    kfc charged 19.27 for 10 pc meal special (before tax)and charged $1 extra for the corn, but the same corn is included in the meal package for $18.99.

    I think it is a terrible dis honest service.

    I deserve an answrer because I am gooffed.

cole slaw

The cole slaw from KFC Eshowe KwaZulu Natal South Africa is not as tasty as it used to be. It is fresh, but the mixture seems not to contain enough salad dressing. The manager should give attention to following the proper recipe.

unfair labor!

My wife has worked there for 3 yrs... she finally mad shift manager and put in for her vacation and vacation...

did not get what I paid for!

Paid for our dinner, asked employee for the fried wings on the buffet because there were none there and specified that is all I will eat (have my reasons). She said ready in two minutes. 30 minutes later and 2 other requests they still were not there. The employees found that very funny and laughed. When I asked for the manager I had to wait 5 minutes and then all she said was "Oh well." So I asked her for a number where I can make a complaint. She handed me a piece of paper and said call this number. All the number is for is a brief survey and no where to make a complaint. As I was walking out of the store, still hungry, my husband who was waiting just outside saw the young man behind the counter make gestures toward me. We were treated less than a paying customer should be treated. Not only did I not have a meal, they did not even make any gesture toward satisfying a customer who paid and did not eat. If you are interested in why I do not eat anything but the wings please contact me. I will be more than happy to let you know.

    As we cautiously went back for the third time after being disgusted in our previous attempts we ordered a 6 piece box with one side. The drive through person said the order came with three biscusts. We reqested no thighs and were willing to pay the difference, we requested jelly and two forks. She had a snide little smile on her face and I thought something might be wrong. We blessed her anyway since the Bible says to bless those who curse you and believe me we were cursed that night. After the rediculous price of fifteen dollars we found no jelly for our biscuts, (which we really wanted), one fork and two of the biggest, fattest, greasiest thighs we have ever seen in our lives. As I put one in my hand the grease ran down my arm and as I attemtped to bite into it the grease ran out both corners of my mouth and down my arms. My wife tore the plastic bag it came in to place the greasy chicken and bones while we drove. Everything in the car became grease saturated and was dangerous driving at 65 mph. We attempted to discard some of the greasy bones and skin out the window and became concerned about the traffic behind us. We prayed the Lord would not let them slide on them. This is not a joke. My clothes will have to be discarded because Dawn couldn't get this grease out. We found 5 and a half pieces of chicken one of which was a tiny piece of a wing that must have come from a pigeon population. We never saw the mashed potatoes and gravy we ordered. Good thing I suppose, less grease to deal with. I tried hard as a Bishop to bless this person with the snide smile on her face. We give everyone three chances and this was our third totally disgusted visit to KFC and I might add, our last. This hurts my heart since I use to love KFC so much. If you don't fire the whole crew in Grovetown Georgia, you might lose the whole restaurant. The first two times when we pulled up to the window they took our order immediately and then we found ourselves stuck between two cars while traffic was backing up. We waited 15-20 minutes behind the car at the window and as we drove up they quickly took our money and waited another 20 minutes having been asked to move up and park to have the order brought to us. We waited five additional minutes and I went back in to get a refund. We finally got our money back and left. Seriously folks, you need to check out why the KFC in Grovetown Georgia continues to exist. With the grease from the chicken I could have filled up the oil in my car. It's not amazing that the parking lot there continues to be empty and people steer away from there.

    If you are driving I-20 and get off for KFC in Grovetown, be cautious of the snide smiling girl at the window.

food orders

Goodday
On Sunday the 25th of November I ordered small pops and chips at KFC in Kuilsriver - they suggested that we take the kiddies meal and in the place of a piece of chicken we get the pops. We were glad to take it. However when we order the same Tuesday at Brackenfell they just said that they do not do it that way. No I want to know why one branch can give good service and provide according to customers needs and the next have there own policy and do not want to give according to customers needs??? I thought that the idea off a franchise is to give same service and meals at all branches.
And then I also have to say that the Brackenfell branch was closed on Sunday the 25th without any notice board saying why they are closed. And you could see people inside but no service was provided. If they were stocktaking - they should put up notice boards and saying so!

# food

I hardly eat kfc because of the terrible service and they are constantly forgetting things (Benoni branch). But on Saturday was the worst this time they didn't forget the chips they forgot to put the chicken on the burger, how stupid can you be? And if i happened to take the burger back i would have had to stand in a que for a further 30minutes only to have my burger spat on just because i complained. It's not worth it and i will NEVER eat kfc again.

terrible meal

I have just had the new smokey cheese twister and it was the most terrible thing i could have decided on for lunch. The twister it self is quite delicious but gosh the wrap is so dry and the filling barely had any sauce on it. I had to choke the twister down and then only ate half of it because i couldn't chew anymore it was just TOO dry. Could more sauce be added and could you maybe "butter" the wrap with some of the sauce, like a pizza base that gets some tomato sauce spread on it! Very, very dry, was not good at all the chicken was tasty though but a bit too crispy as well, maybe you could do the twister over and get it just right so that it appeals to people.

shorting customers food

The KFC at 3430 University BLVD. Jacksonville Fla.makes a habit of shorting the orders it serves to people in the drive through line. Either they are just plain stupid and cannot count,or they are cheating the customers for their own gain.This problem has been reported to their supervisors and owner.But the problem still exists.

    My husband went to KFC on West Pearce Blvd. in Wentzville, MO on January 7, 2014 and ordered a 10 piece bucket which according to the receipt is to contain 2 breast, 2 wings, 3 legs, and 3 thighs. So he comes home and we have 3 legs, 5 thighs, and 2 wings. When I called to speak with the manager instead of hearing me out she proceeds to say I was yelling at her, which would be impossible at this time as I have had the flu for the past 10 days and have a very sore throat, she proceeds to hang up on me when all I wanted to ask her to do was train her crew as to the difference between a breast and a thigh. I personally do not like the dark meat. All I can say if this is the way they treat their customers, it will be a very long time before I return to kfc. I find Lee's Chicken to be just as good and they have liver and gizzards every day that I may want them. This is not the first time this has happened and I will guarantee it will be the last.

filthy conditions, staff uniforms, service and smell

The KFC in Wentzville, MO is disgusting. It smells like a toilet when you walk in the door, tables and floor filthy, counter unwashed, dirty used trays piled high, Team Members with faded, dirty, dishevelled uniforms, and attendants who can barely string a coherent sentence together. I can't eat there anymore after a year of watching the place go downhill.

    Like 2 weeks ago i stopped by kfc in redmond, wa. In dinner time and i was waiting for somebody to help me with my order and nobody helped me and i go outside and i saw a lady with a black shirt and a lot of tattoos on both arms. She was next to a white boy like 17 - 19 years old and they were smoking marijuana, when they saw me they went through the back door. I went back inside and the workers that i had seen outside came in laughing very loud and smelling terribly like marijuana. They tryed to take my order but i didn't accept their offer so i left the store immediately. They smelled so bad. That's a very bad review for kfc !!! I am never going there again, im going to tell all my friends to not go there ever again to the redmond kfc, if this is one of your managers you have to do something about it !! Think about it thats a bad influence, just imagine that if it wasnt me seeing them and it was little kids, how bad that would be. - kate green

    Wow. I can't imagine being so ignorant that I reject actual science! Marijuana has been proven to be medically beneficial as well as mentally. It actually elevates your mood rather than make you lazy, like so many close-minded people (such as yourself) refuse to accept. Have fun living your sorry little life! :)

poor service!

I noticed a normal American family siting down for dinner. It was very troubling to me that a mom and her...

bad service and food!

I've just bought 2 "streetwise 2" meals and the service that i received was disgusting to say...

bugs, filthiness, poor service

My family and I ate lunch at this restaurant today and I had to swipe a LIVE roach off the dirty table so we could sit down. I was already disgusted but my family insisted we go ahead and try to eat. As we were eating, I looked behind my daughter who was sitting across from me and noticed in the corner behind the booth seat, was a large spider with several eggs ready to hatch! There was food on the walls, some of the tables were broken and falling over, the floor was filthy and most of the tables hadn't been wiped down. The food was awful too. The chicken tasted as if it had been sitting under a heat lamp for a week and the biscuits were like rocks! The customer service was terrible as well! The person at the register was extremely rude and when my husband went to the counter to ask for more honey mustard sauce, the employees just looked at him and walked away. They never even asked if he needed anything. I will never go to this restaurant again and I am telling everyone I know to stay away from there!

    Taco Bell Ogden & Cass Westmont IL 2:00 pm

    9-27-2007 - dirty, one employee handling food had no gloves. I asked her to put her gloves on and she did.

    I have never seen this particular site dirty, filthy and employees that don't care to clean.

    This is a sickness to customers waiting to happen.

    Please correct this situation. Thank you

horrible service

I wish I could say, the other day, but the problem is the KFC in Harrismith is pathetic, not just once, but always. I love KFC and for to many times have I visited the KFC brach here in Harrismith with the hope that maybe this time it will be better, but it just never is, that is the reason that I have finaly decided to complain and hope that something gets done about it.

I have been there a few times when it happens that the customer before me gets what he or she is ordering, no problems, but when I step up to the counter and order the exact same thing as the customer before me, they are out of stock or the machine is broken or what ever excuse they can come up with. At first I thought it might be me, maybe they have something against me, but then I heard similar complaints from other people.

Then I went in the other night to get the colonel special, sorry they told me, but they do not have the colonel burger bunns and are using the regular small bunns, the best part was I had to pay the colonel burger price. Their excuse, it was month end. Well I'm sorry, if it was a case where they are a new business and have not experienced a month end yet, I would understand, but they have been here for longer than what I have been here.

Now I have worked at a different franchise, but one thing I now about a franchise is that the standard of all the branches have to be kept at the same level, for one bad branch will give a bad name to the rest of the branches. Therefore they usually send out inspectors to make sure that standards are kept up to expectations. i don't know if the inspector just does not come out to Harrismith or if the KFC standard has dropped so low that they just don't care.

I truly hope someone will come out here and come and fix this problem, as I say, it is not just me, there is alot of unsatisfied customers here, they simply have decided to take their business elsewhere, I hope someone can come and keep my business, even if it is just an ice cream, at the end of the day, it is still a sale.

    I have to say that the above complaint is very valid. Just don't buy KFC anymore, anywhere. In Harrismith, when the ice cream machinery is working, they are using the incorrect cups and lids, the sprinkles are not in stock and if you replace with a sauce it's an extra amount with no deduction for the sprinkles that weren't available in the first place. The same is with the twisters and the burgers. The staff are surly and spend more time chatting amongst each other than actually serving the customers. It is a busy little outlet with no infrastructure at all. The cooking staff wizz through to the front to sort out a complaint and the cashiers wizz through to the back to direct cooking processes.

cold — hard — dry — chicken

My husband and I have worked hard at our jobs.He went to pick up two chicken strip dinners.You could not eat them.The chicken was hard- cold - dry.We refuse to go back there.He said there was a bunch of kids working in there- playing and loud. This is the Kentucky Fried Chicken on Entrance Rd. in Leesville Louisiana. They could take a few lessons from Popeyes.

service

my husband & i went to KFC which is located on park blvd & 66th st n-the shift manager (jessica) was very rude and downing the store, which she stated more than once she was visiting. she was telling the customers how bad the store was and how the manager of the store had walked out because the employees, who are young would not follow instructions and how the store employees would use the cook food that was made the day before and serve to the customers the next day. i love KFC because it is the only BUFFET in the area, however because of this experience my husband & i will not go again because of this. i suggest that someone look in to this because alot of the customer who came that night (8/24/07) waited more than 15 minutes to get the food and the drive thru was closed, customers had to come inside, and also for the buffet customers they had no ice because the soda machine in the lobby was broke and customer had to go to the counter to ask for drinks and the employees were either on there cell phones or talking to one another about friends and what they were going to wear. THIS WAS THE WORSE EXPERIENCE i had from KFC.

    I live a good 6 miles from this location and since they tore down the KFC nearest to my house this is the only KFC around.

    Went through their drive thew to order a 10 piece chicken bucket, thinking that i was going to get a nice big bucket of that crispy Kernel Sanders Kentucky Fried Chicken...
    When i got home to open the bucket the very first things to come out of my mouth was "Do I want to eat this?!"
    I would grab a piece of chicken the whole thing would just fall apart in my hand... was VERY greasy and the breading couldn't even stay on the chicken, bones falling off the meat... is was very disgusting and made my stomach turn. It was uneatable!

    I called the supervisor which named herself Sarah. I told her my problem and she laughed.. guaranteed the chicken was fresh and then would laugh and ask me what i expected her to do.
    I couldn't believe the customer service i was receiving.
    This store is ran by a bunch of teenagers that don't care about the food they serve or the customers that they serve... This KFC is the last thing that what you would expect from KFC and i am very disappointed.

    I'll let my Friends and Family know to stay clear of this hell hole.
    KFC has lost my interest.

bugs in food

About 3 months ago, I bought a Hawaian Twister meal at the KFC in Okavango, Brackenfell. When I got home and opened the chips, I found a bug in there. I went back to the branch and complained. The manager sais that he will send the chips for testing- after I explained to him that my aunt died of a liver disease due to a bug in her food- that is why I didnt take this very lightly at all. I took photos of the chips and I was told that Customer Services will phone me soon. After a week, I phoned Customer Services. The lady that answered said the complaint was never sent to them. She said that she is coincidentally the person that deals with the bug complaints and that she will get the chips tested (after a week- what is the chance that the branch still has the chips???!!). I also asked her how many bug complaints they get seeing that they have people assigned to that specifically!! They send me a voucher in the post for R60. Do they seriously think I will ever eat their insect infected food again??!!! If I get ill because of the chips, is that the price they think my life is worth??!! I see that as bribery, I am sorry but i wont accept that. It has been 3 months now, I am still waiting for the chip tests!!! I have a good mind to take those photos and my story to the newspaper!! Wake up KFC SA, you are not only ruining your own reputation, but those of all the KFCs across the world!!!

    I am a costomer for 15 years at KFC from Knit str with 49 Vancouver BC Canada. THe menager there it's a nice lady and always when i go in i have a nice service, but many time she is not there when i buy so the service it's so bad and so poor. I just came for a trip and I had to buy the KFC toonie tuesday (wich is not anymore toonie, it's almost three $). I went there and i did my order and when the pay time came i gave my Visa. Because i didn't have the ID with me they didn't want to serve me and also they laughed when they so me so nervouse. I mean come on i buy there for 15 years, (i always pay and don't make faces, never they had problems with me even tho many times or i got my fries cold or i didn';t get for how much i payed or my poutine was cold like now came from the frigi)and they make me problems for only 17 $? They r lucky the locotion it's close to my house other way i wouldn't buy from them any more. In my opinion the old KFC it's not anymore. The service and everything it's very poor.

    November 06, 2008 this is the date that we celebrate my son's first birthday but unfortunately we are not treated well in this KFC fast food chain which located in Tahlia St. Jeddah Saudi Arabia.

    First: We pay the place for 5-8pm time for our celebration, but the branch manager during that day told us that we are allowed only up to 7:45pm which is not fair for us.

    Second: They really force us to leave by cleaning already the place even we are still inside. This Egyptian Manager is also standing there which I know is not a good manner. I am sure that If we did it to them they open their big big big mouth to talk.

    Third: We learn from the crew that the other occupants after us is the friend of their General Manager and they are pressure the crew and the branch manager to force us to leave the place early.

    Fourth: I was surprised that the order was so fast and when i realized they really want us to finish soon, because you know why we attend another birthday party before and their service were so slow.

    Fifth: Normally the kids meal has a toys to be given, but the total of 15 pieces that we order were not given in the party which supposed to be a children's party.

    In the end of the day they will not make any action in all the complain as they were saying in arabic "qali wali" . Because I know the Egyptian way more talk than to act and the manner it doesn't matter.
