Stopped by this restaurant for lunch today and left wishing we hadn't. My fiance, a disabled veteran who served 14 years in the United States Army, presented his identification for the "veteran's discount" that many Wendy's restaurants give...and was denied. The manager or owner (not sure which) refused to honor the discount. The guy went crazy, in fact, repeatedly yelling "If he's not a 20 year veteran, no discount!!!" It was absolutely absurd, and goes a long way toward explaining why this particular Wendy's location never seems as busy as the other restaurants on this street.My fiance is service disabled, made obvious by his amputations. He also suffers from musculoskeletal damage and severe PTSD from his time deployed. He gave just as much in the service of his country as a 20 year veteran, if not considerably more than some who retired whole. He has never had any difficulty receiving his much-deserved veteran's discount at any other establishment, and we've used it several times at other area Wendy's with no problem. We enjoy Wendy's food and tend to opt for it when we have a "fast food" kind of day...but henceforth we (along with friends and family) shall boycott this particular location and I'm going to leave this review anywhere it might be seen in hopes that other veterans and military families might do the same. I'll also be contacting Wendy's corporate as well as the BBB because I think a case could be made for discrimination here and it requires resolution.
Dear Franchise Owner of the N.Ashley St. KFC in Valdosta,GA: I, and a lot of other folks, wish you would open a location in Lake Park and hope you will consider doing so; KFC would get a warm welcome! Yes, we have Zaxby's and other nice places, but KFC has menu choices none of these offer. Would like to tell you how impressed I am with the courtesy and professionalism of the employees at all the KFC locations in the Valdosta area. They are terrific and so is your wonderful menu! Sincerely, Nancy Conway (firstname.lastname@example.org)
