>At Burger King, Good Vibes Are Now Mandatory
>Research at Burger King, owned by Restaurant Brands International Inc., has shown that customers can perceive friendly staff to be faster than they actually were. One way to make interactions with diners more memorable — and potentially curb complaints — is Burger King’s requirement that workers offer guests the signature cardboard crown, Derby said. Staff is also required to say “you rule,” a new spin on the company’s decades-old tagline.

      “Have it your way” but they are trying to move away from that, since its like pulling teeth to get an item customized and they charge extra for even lettuce, and 90% of the time your order will be very wrong and not “your way”. Just try to ask for “no ketchup add onions” this will confuse the hell out of the cashier, but if they do manage to type it in correctly it’ll cost you an extra 50cents and you will still receive a burger with no onions and extra ketchup

      It's not even fricking close. I worked at Taco Bell for years and had to push surveys on everyone, including people who clearly had zero interest, like teenagers and the elderly. It was annoying, but I knew I could be singing for tips at Cold Stone instead.
      You have a script anyways, saying "you rule" is such a minor thing. The people at Raising Cane's working DT had to CLUCK at people.. that's WAY more fricking annoying, both for us and for them

    been to bk 3x in the last year, the same middle aged woman working the counter every time

    always offers me a crown, i laugh and say no thanks, but leave feeling positive because it seems like she enjoys her job and is trying to have a good time

    imagine my horror to find out she's being forced to say that to every customer

    Every local BK to me has had nonstop staffing issues and even if they are open the food is abysmal even for fast food. I'm talking cones in the drive thru at noon or 6pm because there's literally no day/night staffing. I've worked in the service industry plenty in my past, customers hate nothing more than FORCED interactions, if you want to piss off and alienate 2/3 of your customer base, force employees to say the same things over and over, offer gift cards, upsell at every single opportunity, offer credit cards or donations/roundups etc etc, any good employee is going to greet/upsell in their own manner but knows when to take a hint from a customer, and frick off and just give them the basic service they want, not keep pushing because if a dickwad manager/corporate shill overhears that you didn't ask if they wanted to add extra cheese, double their fry size, add a desert and extra sauces then ask for charity roundup.

    I always hated birthday songs at various restaurants, I can't recall a single day where I went to a place I wanted to eat and wanted to stand out or be treated like a king, I'm there for food after a long day of work and stuff like this would feel condescending and awkward to not just me, but the poor fricking fast food workers who have to do it, I'd be like "I'm so sorry you have to do this, oh my god" internally and that'd make burger king's already abysmal tasting food taste worse, I think.

    Wanna know the best way to get me to come to burger king? Stop being stingy about putting 2 slices of cheese in a double whopper and subsequently charging me extra to get that second slice. It's not a "double" whopper if you do that, it's 1 and a half of a whopper. Also make food that actually tastes good, burger king fries are awful.

    I haven't been to BK since they got rid of their $3 Double Whopper coupon that was always on the app. Frick them. I think I checked the app a few months ago and they're insulting me with a $3 Whopper coupon now. Get rekt.

        I stopped eating fast food entirely. Raw food prices are not up all that much compared to the doubling and tripling of menu prices. The fast food industry is just price gouging because they saw the worthless animals will line up for their slop even if it takes all day even if a terminal disease that kills the 6 million every day is threatening them.

            I would agree with your sentiment, but they *also* have good deals. For example, at mcdonalds a large freeze is literally cheaper than a large lemonade with the app, and you get a buy one get one free thing for burgers that can stack with the freeze deal.

            Also, taco bell has an online deal built in with the build your own cravings box, and where I am I can get a cheesy gordita crunch, a 5 layer burrito, a side like nachos or cinnamon twists, AND a large drink for $6.99, but I can make it other things if I want. And that's not a limited time deal, either.

            Del taco is where most of the actual non rewards based rewards are however, they usually have a lot of various deals, I usually just use the buy one burrito get another one free thing.

            Rewards programs on their own wouldn't be enough for me to sing the praises of these apps, because as you said, they're simply rewarding you for spending, but they ALSO have deals. I can't tell you how many times it was nice to have rewards on top of that, like "Oh I'm just gonna get a 'free' snack from the rewards I got from places I was eating at anyway."
