Jimmy Johns is a local sandwich joint. This was our experience on Customer Appreciation Day. They deserve every bit of this criticism. You never know who that customer you’re mistreating is or what they know how to do. Spread the word and show them that they should pay better attention to social media. It’s a two-way street. You cannot control the conversation, nor can you ignore it.
Here is a picture of the sandwich she was given:
“We went to Jimmy Johns on “Customer Appreciation” Day. My friend ordered by number with NO special directions. She got a sandwich that was LITERALLY turkey on bread. Nothing else. She called to see if they’d replace it and the response was “sure, but you have to wait in line again. We have lots of other customers.” I posted to their Facebook page hoping that someone at their corporate office would care
but all they did was delete my post. (edit: they responded after I wrote this). I guess they didn’t care. This was more like anti-Appreciation day. My office is in the same building as their store and we eat there A LOT. Do they care? If you want a sandwich fast that may or may not be what you actually ordered and don’t care about customer service and want to support a corporation that could care less as well, then feel free to patronize this establishment. If, on the other hand, you appreciate customer service, quality food and a caring business, I wouldn’t waste even a dollar here. The impression we have of them was completely ruined on the one day that they wanted to “appreciate” their customers. If this is how they treat customers when they want to appreciate them, it’s all downhill from there. Thank you, Jimmy Johns for caring about us, your customers, on your Customer Appreciation Day. Good thing Subway isn’t far away!”
[UPDATE 10/26: Jimmy John's corporate office sent me a $10 gift card and apology letter. I must admit that the letter didn't seem like a form letter so it did seem sincere. The store itself didn't (and still hasn't) acknowledged that the problem even happened.]
