resolved to the customer's satisfaction
Been to almost every KFC outlets in Penang and it seems all the outlets have the same issues.
Not too long ago, KFC started its credit card payment option service. I was delighted since I often make purchases for my family and also for events which can total up to a huge amount on the bill.
Unfortunately, it seems the credit card service is more of a sales gimmick. Most if not all the outlets does not accept credit cards!
I went to a few outlets which gave me straight forward answers stating they do not receive credit card payments even though they have the machine and the credit card sticker at the entrance.
Some outlets will say they accept but after you make your purchase they will inform you that the machine is out of order or offline.
The best experience I encountered was in Megamal Pinang KFC outlet, the manager in charge was manning the counter. When it was my turn to order I asked if the credit card machine can be use, he told me to go to the next line(the current cash register credit card machine I'm queuing does not work). So I went over to the next line and queued all over again. Again this time the cashier asked me to go to the next line because of the same problem. In the end after repeating the same process for 5 times, the last cashier told me that the machine is offline.
So I ended up walking away and head over to McD. I tried complaining through e-mails, suggestion/feedback forms...all to no avail. It seems they would just chuck it away. There isn't any proper channel for these types of problem to be complaint or handle here in Penang/Malaysia.
