In the Era of Obama where people like Beyonce have more impact on policy than legislators, I’m not surprised to find a restaurant that didn’t serve cops.
Apparently a police officer and his wife visited a Krystal’s restaurant, and went through the drive-through in his patrol car. Seemingly ignored, the officer exited his vehicle and went into the restaurant in order to find out what the problem was.
When he walked in, the entire staff walked away, and went to the back of the store, in protest.
The store admitted to the incident as reported, and gave the following response:
“We take this allegation very seriously and have spoken with the entire Irondale Krystal team in addition to reviewing surveillance footage. Our policy is to serve all guests promptly and with a smile. In this case, we clearly did not meet the officer’s expectations and we want to correct it. We want to invite this individual as well as the entire Irondale Police department into our restaurant for a meal to demonstrate our appreciation for what they do,” Krystal said in a statement.
“We value their contributions and the relationship we have with them and with police departments in all of our communities. If this officer in any way felt slighted, we want him to know that we apologize and that was in no way, shape or form our intent.”
