Most Customer Complaints are Never Reported

When the bowl of New England Clam “Chowda” (written as it should always be pronounced) arrived, I ate half of it before discovering there was a large rubber band in the bottom of the bowl.

When I calmly showed it to my waiter, he promptly said my entire meal was free.

When I bit into the breakfast sandwich, I hit a tooth…and it wasn’t my own! When I told the manager, he gave me a coupon for my next visit.

When I ordered take-out from a new Chinese restaurant nearby, I received someone else’s order!

Did I sue the restaurants? No.

Did I take photos and blast them out to social media and appear on national news? No.

Did I complain to management at all? No.

In the case of the Chinese restaurant, I just never went back.

What can you possibly do to lower your unhappy customer rate and increase your knowledge of complaints?
