Owner closes business for ‘attitude adjustment’
A business owner temporarily closed his Texas restaurant as part of an attitude adjustment for his employees.
The Schlotzky’s Deli in Abilene was temporarily closed after the owner noticed customer service declining. Employees were reportedly not smiling enough and were slow to carry out their tasks.
So, the place was temporarily closed and the public was notified on a sign outside which read, “Closed for Attitude Adjustment.”
Some of the employees were reportedly fired and others were to undergo training to improve customer service after the shop was closed the last week of November.
The restaurant was originally scheduled to reopen Wednesday, December 4 but the owner extended the reopening date to Monday, December 9, 2013.
