The Pickle Principle

The pickle philosophy evolved from an incident at one of Bob Farrell's restaurants. A customer asked for extra pickles; and while there was no cost for extra pickles, the waitress let the customer know there would be a charge for the extra pickles. The customer contacted Bob Farrell, which led to his addressing the issue and letting his staff know to "Give 'Em the Pickle." Give 'Em The Pickle is all about going the extra mile for customer service. It's been put into practice at many businesses and now here at Campus Recreation. It may be about going the extra mile to make customers happy or putting your own personal stamp on customer service that sets you apart from your competition. Has our staff gone the extra mile for you? Have they given you the pickle? Let us know!
