A good as their pizza may be, they just lost a customer. While the pizza is great, the employees have no concept of customer service and customer satisfaction. They are poorly trained, rude, arrogant and stupid. Friday, I had an appointment after work so I placed an order for a pizza 1 hour prior to picking it up. The young lady on the phone advised we that it would be ready in plenty of time.
When I arrived, I presented my coupon for $18.33, printed out from their website. I have bee a lifelong customer of Brooklyn Pizza, however, my experience was one the worst examples of customer service I have ever experienced.
The cashier took my credit card and rang me through for $21.77. My estimate of the charge was $18.33 (coupon) + 7% tax =$19.61. When I asked her what the extra charge was, I received three different and ridiculous responses, one after the other, 1) "That's just the way the register rings it up", 2) "Our prices have gone up", 3) "This coupon is not correct and must have come from some other website", and finally, 4) "I don't know, I will need to get my manager".
My pizza was supposed to be ready at 5:10pm; it was now 5:20pm and I was still standing there. A second young lady came over, took my receipt and coupon and walked into the back claiming that the coupon was not theirs. My response was that she was welcome to look it up on their website and verify it. I watched her hand the paperwork off to a third person, a woman that was much older and appeared to be in charge.
Instead of following through with my issue, the cashier continued to wait on customers, the second young lady began sweeping the floors and the older woman was flitting around in the back, obviously doing everything but addressing my issue. To this point, no one apologized for the inconvenience or the issue and all parties basically just left me standing next to the register and ignored me.
After standing there for another ten minutes, I stepped forward into the register line and told the first young lady (cashier) to just forget about the mistake in ringing up my order and give me my order and that I was late for an appointment and could wait no longer. She turned and walked over to the ovens to get my order and came back empty handed. She now, after all this nonsense, told me that my pizza was not even in the oven yet and would not be ready for at least another 40 minutes, even though I had order over an hour and 1/2 ago.
At that point, completely outraged, I handed her back my credit card and requested a refund. This, of course, caused more nonsense and the involvement of three other employees and resulted in the wait of another 5 minutes after which I was handed back my credit card and informed that the "credit" for my order may take several days to appear back in my Bank account and that if that was the case, that it would be my Bank's fault and not theirs. I explained that I did not order the pizza from my Bank and that when they ran my card through, it went into Brooklyn Pizza's account immediately and they didn't have to wait a couple of days to be paid for my pizza. The manager and cashier just shrugged and handed my back my credit card and a receipt for the credit. No once did any employee of Brooklyn Pizza apologize for the mistake and inconvenience, not once did any of them attempt to comp me for my next order. In fact the never even returned my coupon.
Every employee at Brooklyn Pizza needs to attend a class in Customer Service and Customer satisfaction, both of which are concepts that seem to elude them. To the owners of Brooklyn Pizza: BROOKLYN PIZZA YOU AND EACH OF YOUR EMPLOYEES SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES. I will never order another pizza form Brooklyn Pizza and I hope everyone that reads this post boycotts you as well.
